"Dr. Richard Eller is one of the best doctors out there! He is kind and has a wonder bedside manner, which many other doctors lack! He is going to find out what’s wrong and get you the help you need! His detailed testing will find out what’s wrong regarding your hormones - you will improve and get better! Ladies and Gentlemen, he is a great doctor! Go see him! And Katelin, who works in his office is just lovely and follows back up with you in a timely manner! Such great people!"



"I’ve known Dr. Eller for years. You will be hard pressed to find another doctor who is invested in his patients the way Dr. Eller is. He truly has a servant’s heart and is dedicated to providing the best medical and wellness plan to meet each patient’s needs."



"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 an amazing experience at Vital Aesthetics! I was treated by Leah, Kristin, & Dr. Eller during my appointment. All three were very knowledable about the treatments offered and addressed all of my concerns. At the beginning of my appointment, Leah & Kristin took time to talk about my skincare goals and suggested several possible treatment options. There was no pressure to sign up for any treatments I didn’t feel comfortable with. Payment is discussed upfront so there are no surprises- very professional experience. I ended up getting Botox, Skinpen and a Morpheus8 treatment. My primary concern was treatment for hyperhidrosis. Dr Eller & his team suggested Morpheus8 as an alternative to Botox, which ended up being a much more cost effective and permanent solution. Dr. Eller & Leah talked me through everything that was happening and the treatment was pain free. I felt incredibly comfortable knowing that after I left the office I could call them at any time with questions about after treatment care. I’m very happy with the results of Morpheus8. In fact, 4 days after treatment I walked to work on a warm day wearing a white shirt, which I would NEVER have done prior to going to Vital Aesthetics! Highly recommend for anyone in the Dallas area! Will definitely be returning for future treatments- great experience from the time I walked in the door to the time I walked out."



"Love Dr. Eller and his team. They are very knowledgeable, kind, and always a lot of fun to be around. Dr. Eller does great work and really listens to your wants before suggesting."
