Dr. Jonathan Vellinga has been one of the best doctors that my husband and myself has ever found. He takes the time to listen and take the time at every appointment we have with him. We can ask him medical questions or medical concerns and he always takes the time to answer those questions without making us feel rushed. He makes his patients feel important and that he is truly concerned about their medical care.

Dr. Vellinga and his staff are awesome! I have never sat in the waiting room more than 10 minutes. If I have a urgent care situation I can call the office and his nurse gets me in. I am Always greeted with a smile. I feel very cared for. Dr Vellinga listens to me and responds to my concerns. I trust him and his staff completely. I tell my friends and family that I have the best doctor in the world.

I saw Dr. Vellinga because my Dr. was out. Even though he was not my regular Dr. he treated me as such, and since my Dr. is getting close to retiring I would certainly look toward having Dr. Vellinga be my regular Dr.

Some months ago, I noticed numbness in my feet. I saw Dr. Vellinga, he ran several tests, and determined that I was pre-diabetic. He counseled me, gave me a diet and exercise routine to follow, and within six months, when I was retested, my blood sugar was back in the normal range, I was no longer a candidate for diabetes. He has a way of explaining things in "layman" terms, so that his patients can easily understand what health conditions they may be dealing with.
