About Me

Care Philosophy

I practice general surgery and perform most procedures laparoscopically. I like to know my patients as individuals, and I have a "family doctor" approach to surgical care. I also practice bariatric medicine, helping patients to manage their weight with nutritional counseling and lifestyle change.

Somehow my intestines had gotten twisted and then adhered itself to my stomach wall. Dr. Eller literally saved my life. I can't begin to say enough good things about Dr. Eller. He has operated on me twice now, and I trust him completely. He is very personable and just a caring man. I Love Dr Eller
