"I have been seeing Dr. Eller for several years. He listens to my concerns and is super professional. I love the whole team. The ladies at the front desk are the best!! I highly recommend Vital Wellness!"



"It has been great going to see Dr Eller and his team. He is very thorough and was able to tell me what I thought was wrong for a while and he took the time to explain it to me. Kristen and Lisa are always so friendly when I go in. They make it a great experience every time. And Dr Eller helps me to adjust my diet if needed to and understands that it takes work to lose weight. I will keep going there as long as I can for the encouragement and friendly people."



"The team at Vital Aesthetics is outstanding! During my free consultation appointment, Dr. Richard Eller took the time to understand my needs and wants (and noticed that I had been misdiagnosed by other doctors). He is an expertly skilled surgeon that I highly recommend. Lisa, Meagan, and the entire team at Vital Aesthetics have provided exceptional care, attention, and services. They can do everything I need in-house and at very reasonable prices with their state-of-the-art technology and proficiency. After considering several different offices, I am so glad I chose Vital Aesthetics, and I recommend you do so, too!"



"I have to brag on my girl, Meagan Rodriguez! She has been taking care of me for the last 7 years. I followed her here to Dr. Ellen's practice and she's never been happier. Meagan gave me a tour and I can see why she is so happy. This place has EVERY laser she's ever dreamed of. Dr. Eller is doing my liposuction and fat transfer soon and Meagan does all my facials and anti-aging treatments. Leah is also super helpful and informative. This place is great. They give you their undivided attention and have multiple payment options making treatments available to everyone."



"I can’t put into words how all the different treatments I have had done at Vital Aesthetics has changed my life. I am currently doing my laser treatments with my favorite tech Aleah and have lost the unwanted weight with the help of Dr. Eller. I am so happy with my results! They listened to what I wanted and gave me a solution with their expertise and knowledge. I will never trust to go any where else to do what Dr. Eller and Aleah can do ! I highly recommend !"
