Dr. Evans Brillant Doctor.

I had surgery with Dr Evans Sept 12/2017 for removal of a pituitary adenoma. I can’t say I was nervous, I wasn’t because I knew I was in the best hands. Doc is a brilliant surgeon. I must say he is one of the kindest human being I ever came across. I met him four years ago and I Respect Dr Evans as my Neurosurgeon but I can also joke around with him and that is important. When a patient has surgery they are scared and the Surgeon who has a great bedside manor makes them feel less afraid. Dr Evans explained my procedure, post op what to expect and i did completely well. I would recommend Doc to all my loved ones. Thank you Doc for being The best and taking great care of me. Fondly Maria Nunez.
