Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Eller, a Surgeon is an awesome communicator and had respect for me as his patient. He's very thorough and want's everything to be done right the first time which I was thrilled to hear. Dr. Eller listened carefully and respectfully to what I had to say about my symptoms. He sent me to a Specialist in Gastroenterology for some testing so that he knew exactly what was happening with me. Dr. Eller had the ability to share information in terms I could understand. It’s OK to use med-speak and complicated terms, but he accompanied it by an explanation at the same time. He didn’t interrupt me as I spoke which was refreshing as I have experienced that with many doctors. They don't listen to the patient it's them doing all the talking. He helped me understand what the next steps would be, and that went a long way toward helping me understand my problem. He drew a diagram and explained everything in great detail. I was very impressed and would refer him to anyone that needs a great Surgeon. BTW he is funny without really trying. He puts you at ease. Not only is he a great doctor he's also a great guy!
