Meet Dr. Eller

My medical career started in the third grade. We were given a picture of a heart with 4 chambers, a right and left lung, and channels connecting them all. I remember it as if it were yesterday; I colored the blue for the channel sending blood to the heart and then traveling to the lung, changed it to red, sent it back to the heart and then out to the body. I thought that was the coolest thing I had ever seen. And on that day a little girl in Mt. Holly, NC decided she would be a doctor. 


During my Anesthesiology residency, it was mandated that every resident had to rotate through the Pain Clinic. Ugh. Who wants to deal with pain every day? Well it ended up that I did. Taking care of patients in pain accomplished everything I wanted and needed as a doctor. I love the relationships I have with my patients and feel lucky everyday to have fallen into this career of helping to alleviate suffering from pain.


Dr. Eller is board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and holds an ABA Subspecialty Certificate in Pain Management (which is the only pain management board certification recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties).


Dr. Eller has practiced pain management in Beaufort SC since 2000. She chartered the Palmetto Pain Center in 2004. She is active in the community and has sat on community boards in the arts and local hospice organizations.


She graduated from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics in 1986. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Duke University in 1990, where she graduated Cum Laude as a Benjamin N. Duke Scholar and Duke Power Leadership Scholar. Although she is an ardent Duke Basketball fan, she admits to graduating from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in 1994. She completed an internship in Internal Medicine/Pediatrics/Surgery in 1995 at UNC and finished her Anesthesiology Residency in 1998 at UNC as Chief Resident. She then completed a fellowship in Interventional Pain Management at UNC in 1999.


Dr. Eller is married to her high school sweetheart, who is a terrible UNC grad and basketball fan. They sometimes do not talk during the ACC basketball season. Her two children are grown and out on their own, graduates of Emerson College and the University of Georgia. She has three dogs who keep her hopping, two rescues and an Instagram famous schnauzer. She has a 6 day a week dedicated Ashtanga yoga practice. She pretends to garden on occasion.
