"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."



"In May 2022, I was about the heaviest I had ever been. I let work dominate my schedule for years and had zero balance in my life for self care. I put dealing with my health on the back burner for at least 5-7 years and it took a toll to where I was pre-diabetic, cholesterol was very high and I was always in pain. Family and friends were vocal about their concerns for years and I ignored them. I was driven at work, but apathetic in just about every other area of my life. I let it all go. I didn’t care…. at all. About 9 months ago, I decided to make a change and I met with Dr. Richard Eller at Vital Aesthetics. I liked the fact that he offered weight loss, customized hormone optimization and aesthetics. We did a blood work panel ahead of our first appointment and he spent about 2.5 hours with me explaining my results, discussing where I was headed if I didn’t change and gave me insight on how I could make some small changes that over time would have a significant impact. Since starting with Dr. Eller's program, I lost 40 lbs in the first 6 months. I’ve reduced my overall body fat, significantly lowered my cholesterol, decreased much of my pain, increased my energy and I feel better overall. I have been solely focused on my calorie count and diet without exercise. Exercise is starting soon. We also added Accent Prime for Non Surgical Body Contouring. I come in once a month for monthly appointments and while there to discuss my weight loss and health, we add an Accent Prime treatment to help tighten the skin. As I've lost weight, I have had some skin laxity and this treatment is definitely helping tighten the skin. Picture on the left May 2022. Picture on the right October 2022. Give Vital Aesthetics a call today and schedule some time to discuss your health and desires for weight loss with Dr. Eller!"



"He is the best surgeon and just a amazing human being. He's so helpful and great at explaining everything in detail you can undersrand. He also gives you advice even if it's after hours and your concerned about something and he is very prompt and the nicest most down to earth doctor and hes had to do multiple surgeries on me and they all healed with minimal pain. I would recommend him to anyone I know and i have and will continue too. Ty Dr. Eller. "



"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!"
