Excellent care and communication!
Very personable and friendly doctor! Cares about your health, well being, and lifestyle 100%.
My first visit to Dr. Vermylen and his team was great! His reception team and nurse were friendly and quite capable, and he met/exceeded my expectations. I am pleased! I plan on being with Dr. Vermylen and his team indefinitely!
Fantastic doctor who takes the time to really get to know his patients and understand their needs, concerns and goals holistically. I would recommend Dr. Vermylen to anyone.
Dr David Vermylen is a great guy and an outstanding doctor who I couldn't recommend more. He treats each appointment with extreme importance and never rushing to see the next patient. I feel lucky to have him as my Doctor.
He spent great time examining me carefully and listened patiently to everything I said. His recommendations have been very helpful.
Dr.Vermylen and his staff are great. I felt very comfortable at the office. They saw me right away. Got me in and out. He answered all my questions and throughly explain everything. It was great.
Very personable and easy to talk to. Also very thorough.
Dr. actively listened to my concerns, and gave practical answers to my question.
Once I got in to see David the appointment went well. I was able to discuss a few medical concerns I had and he was able to respond to and start finding reasons for why all of them are happening. He gave me actionable ways to start improving some ailments I currently have. That said, I was quite frustrated with the wait time. I got in around 2:45 and I didn't get into a room until around 3:20. This was with an appointment at 3 which was scheduled weeks in advance. After that it still took a while for David to get in to see me, though it sounded like he was having a busy day so it's not the end of the world. Overall I plan on returning in 4 months to see if I've made progress with my high blood pressure or if we'll need to find a different solution. I'm looking forward to David being my PCP.
I chose Dr. Vermylen because I wanted to get an in-network doctor close to my office who had good reviews. While it was an opportunity to get my annual physical as a new patient, he also discussed a few other minor ailments. He was very friendly, professional, and thorough. I appreciated his ability to be clear about his assessments and his recommendations without making me in any way feel rushed or like just another patient. I felt completely at ease very quickly, and I was grateful that I felt I could be candid. We guys are notorious about not being direct with vulnerable or embarrassing conditions or questions, but by the end of my very short visit I can imagine myself putting anything on the table because I experienced his authentic care for his patients. Highly recommend!
Dr. Vermylen takes the time to speak to you and asks questions to get to the bottom of the health concerns
My first visit with Dr. Vermylen was amazing. I arrived about 15 minutes early and was seen right away. I expected it to be a quick check up impersonal meeting but it turned out to be a welcome 45 minutes to almost an hour. He really took the time to get to know me, my medical past, asked a lot of in depth questions, discussed other options as far as treatments, recommended specialists, and made it a point to make a follow up appointment to see how things are going. I would definitely recommend him and will be making him my regular PC Physician.
Very informed, and very helpful. He listened well and was not quick to throw me on medication, something I was very pleased to see. Would highly reccomend him as a primary.
He is very knowledgeable and awesome. I felt at ease.
This office is top-notch. They actually started my appointment about 5 minutes early. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Dr. Vermylen has a very progressive approach to healthcare, and I like it. He's extremely personable and present. I quickly felt comfortable speaking with him, and he spent a considerable amount of time with me on my first visit. I found him to be expectantly knowledgeable, and he explained things in a manner that I could understand. I sure am glad I chose Dr. V.
I couldn't be more pleased with my visit. My appointment with Dr Vermylen to talk about some anxiety issues I was having. As (bad) luck would have it, I was having an episode when I met him. He was kind and understanding. He asked questions. He listened to my answers. After a few minutes, he was able to succinctly describe what he thought was going on and offer possible solutions to fix it. I've never been more thoroughly impressed with a first doctor's visit. Highly recommend.
Can't say a single negative thing about my visit (staff, wait times, the Dr.). Fantastic doctor - will go to him for all future visits.
Very caring and personable
Dr Vermylen is always very professional. He always listens and also very detailed oriented about the symptoms and he also remembers you (with Dr Vermylen you will have a personal follow-up and can send him an email and he will always answer)
Personable and knowledgable. Took time to answer all of my questions.

Great experience. Thank you!
Great first time visit with Dr. Vermylen!
This is my first visit. He was to the point and asked all the right questions. Overall the office was very efficient, I was directed to an examination room with 5 minutes of my arrival.
Dr. Vermylen was great. I just relocated to the city and needed a new doctor. He was very professional and easy to talk with. I also found he was very personable and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend.
I went to see Dr. Vermylen base on zoc doc reviews, and it was great! He was very thorough, attentive & pleasant! Highly recommended!!! The staff was friendly too.
A nonagenarian, I brought copies of Do Not Resuscitate forms to seriously discuss. Dr. Vermylen was beyond generous with his time, and with his patient, serious, kind deliberation. I felt comforted by my selection of options after our discussion.
Dr. Vermylen is great! He is not only professional and attentive but very easy to speak to. I arrived 10 minutes early and was seen within 3 minutes of speaking with the receptionist. I would definitely recommend Dr. Vermylen!
First of all, this was my first online appointment I've made and it was solely based on the reviews and ratings of Dr. Vermylen. My experience was great. I was there 10 minutes earlier and called-in 5 minutes before the appointment time. (Wow) A aid/nurse got my vitals (height/weight) and escorted me to the exam room where I waited only few minutes for Dr. Vermylen. He has a very positive attitude and adviced me to get my blood work done, just to set a baseline for the future. He also answered my questions patiently, and when I asked about few additional tests, he told me that those aren't necessary until we see the results of the bloodwork. I highly recommend both him and ZocDoc and will certainly use it again for my other medical needs.
Its was really pleasure to meet dr.david.. All went good.. The staff was really nice.. Highly recommend to visit him..
Dr. Vermylen was super nice and professional. Easy to talk to and truly cares about patient's concerns. Honestly he is the best I've ever seen!
We just moved to Chicago and I could not be happier in choosing Dr. Vermylen as my primary care physician. Dr. Vermylen took his time, was very pleasant and professional. He asked a lot of questions, was very kind, asked for my input and opinions and was genuinely interested in all I shared. His staff was also very kind and professional. As a result, my husband will be making an appointment to establish him as his PCP as well. I highly recommend him and his staff.
My experience with doctors in the past has involved waiting forever to see the doctor only to be rushed in and rushed out in 10 minutes. Dr. Vermylen was the opposite. I was seen right away and he took his time to get to know me since I was a new patient. He was thorough and clear in his diagnosis. Highly recommend.
Dr. Vermylen is incredibly intelligent, patient, and truly cares about helping his patients. The office is very clean and the staff is extremely helpful and nice.
Awesome, very personable and thorough.
Great doctor who seems to care, spent extra time in going into my medical background rather than fixing what was wrong at the moment. Def will be seeing again and highly recommended.
I was very pleased with the overall experience with Dr. Vermylen and the entire office. Everyone made me feel welcome.
Dr. Vermylen is super friendly and knowledgeable--and he's quite good at making you feel comfortable during your visit. Highly recommend!
This was an outstanding physician experience. Appointment began a few minutes early. Had all the time I wanted and really felt that Dr. Vermylen cared about my health and the patient relationship. Would recommend to anyone!
Excellent service and knowledge
My visit was great! It was very convenient being right on Michigan, and the wait time was not bad at all. Dr. Vermylen was very nice and professional and put me at ease, I couldn't imagine a better doctor's appointment.

Dr. Vermylen spent 45 minutes with me during my first appointment. He was friendly, very thorough, and answered all my questions. I didn't feel rushed. I'm so happy to find such a great doctor!
I loved my visit with Dr. Vermylen. He was very professional and thorough. He made sure that I was taken care of and he seemed like he really cared about his work. He has an energy about him that made me feel very comfortable and confident in his words. I will definitely see Dr. Vermylen in the future.
Dr. Vermylen and his staff were great! I couldn't have asked for a nicer, more patient understanding and informative doc. It was very comfortable and easy to 1) find an appt 2) reach him and wasn't rushed or nerve-wrecking at all. I appreciate the personal follow-up call and all the information that was given. I'm happy to say that I have a primary doctor that I can trust and recommend!
I was in the market for a new internist and found him on ZocDoc. Dr. Vermylen was, kind, professional and respectful of my time.
I hadn't been to a doctor in sometime and was a bit worried about the issues I was having—that said, Dr. Vermylen put me right at ease with his professionalism and bedside manner. Very thorough with his examination, and well-spoken in his articulation of his thoughts and diagnosis. I typically had an aversion to doctors, but my experience with David definitely changed that.
I would recommend Dr Vermylen as a primary care physician to anyone. He's just all what I need as a patient. Very welcoming & comfortable to talk to.
Dr. Vermylen is one of those Doctors who undoubtedly chose the right profession. He is thoughtful, thorough, and extremely well-read on the most recent research and guidelines. I will be recommending him to my friends and family.
Quickest most efficient doctor's visit I've ever had. He was very professional and personable but prompt and respectful of my time while obtaining all of the needed medical background and information for my annual checkup. I'd highly recommend their office and Dr. Vermylen specifically.
Great overall experience. Appointment started right on time and even though I had to provide some additional information as a new patient, I never felt rushed. Dr. Vermylen seems to really know how to connect with patients and make them feel comfortable while also providing helpful information and thorough answers to any questions.
Just a great doctor!
There was a ~30 min wait beyond my sched appt which was a bit annoying, but the nurses and doc were all very apologetic...appeared to be a one-off hectic kinda day. Doc was great, lab work quick and easy
You see too many times these days doctors who treat their practice purely like a business. Get in, get some info, come to a common diagnosis that fits the description. Dr. David Vermylen is not one of those doctors. He actually took the time to hear my complete story, all my symptoms, and any concerns I had regarding them. Dr. Vermylen is very kind, knowledgable and he was immensely helpful regarding my payment options. He truly is a gem in the occasionally murky waters of modern medicine.
The office and receptionist are very accommodating. They give clear directions ahead of time and understand rescheduling circumstances.
I couldn't be happier with my visit. Dr. Vermylen was attentive, thorough and kind. He was able to address all of my needs and questions without making me feel rushed or ignored.
