Specialties

Sean Evans has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Receptionist kept confusing me with another patient, drawing the wrong chart, misfiled my payment and accused me of non-payment. Dr. Evans misdiagnosed me as having conversion disorder (absurd!). Ended up in the emergency - true diagnosis - thiamine deficiency.

Horrible Doctor!

My experience/treatment with Dr. Sean Evans and staff was completely unsatisfactory. I was being seen for fainting with POSSIBLE seizure like activity. I spent 20 min. in a consultation with Dr. Evans as he was supervising a very nervous intern, asking me routine questions and performing simple reflex testing. At the end of their analysis Dr Evans concluded with certainty that I had a seizure disorder. Upon asking him how he was so 100% sure his diagnosis was correct he responded "I am an expert in my field". He had not run ONE single test! Much of what he briefly described to me where complete assumptions. He never even asked when the last occurrence had happened, which was over a year ago. I was handed a prescription which I was to start taking immediately and for the rest of my life. He then told me he was reporting me to the DMV and my license would be revoked immediately. He said technically I should take a cab home. Through confusion and tears I felt insulted yet again when he told me "I seemed like a pretty smart girl and would figure things out". I was abruptly asked to leave and left with no goodbye or any plan of action. After two other Doctors opinions I have been given a solid diagnosis that does not include a Seizure Disorder. I am completely safe to drive. However, because of Dr. Sean Evans over zealous diagnosis I am still fighting to get my license back.
