Another Dr. Eller fan here! He did surgery on my elderly dad in an emergency situation. My dad was not a candidate for elective surgery due to his age and health issues, and Dr. Eller did what he could to help him avoid surgery. But when it was inevitable, he gave him the best possible chance of recovery, which he achieved! He also spent all the time needed to help us understand what was going on. I know he didn’t get paid extra for all the time he took with my dad, but he treated him as if he was a family member. We are so thankful there are doctors like him who haven’t given up on the medical profession! Thank you, Dr. Eller. We are eternally grateful!

I had to have emergency surgery and Dr Eller and saved my life. Then I needed him for another surgery and everything turned out great. He is very personable and I can't say enough good things about Dr Eller

Dr. Eller is an excellent physician. He is a great listener and allows ample time for his patients. He is competent, professional with great sense of humor. His office personnel, Jay and Katelin are fabulous and patient friendly. My surgery went very well and I would recommend Dr. Eller.

Dr. Richard Eller is amazing! This gentleman has an amazing bedside manner, cares about his patients, speaks directly to his patients, and listens to his patient's concerns! Dr. Eller is NOT a pill-pusher, which is so refreshing! If you want to improve your health, lose weight, or have your hormone levels checked and put back to normal levels, he is your man! This is the first time I've ever been able to leave a great review about a doctor!

Dr. Eller did surgery to have my gall bladder removed. Operation went well and I have no complications from the surgery. I was able to go to work after 5 days. Dr. Eller spent significant time with me (more than any other Dr. I have been to) to go over the procedure in detail. I was even able to get him on the phone to answer a couple of questions after the surgery. He did a great job.
