I consider myself lucky to have found someone as knowledgeable about my condition as Dr. Evans


Dr Evans is tops and I have utmost trust in him!


Very impressed with Dr. Evans. Glad my health care provider advised me to make an appointment with him.


Felt confident that they could help me.


I thought my provider was excellent.


My experience is always excellent with Dr. Evans and with his staff. (Please see previous comment for specifics)


Dr. Evans was great!!! He was so informative and explained things very well to my husband and me.


Dr. Evans always provides me with the best of care.


Dr. Evans is always very courteous, informative, caring and overall, an outstanding doctor!


I would have liked the Dr. to explain more on the possible new treatments going on, how his male patients are doing and just more time in general. Great Dr. but I felt since he was over 2 hrs behind that I got scraps as far as time.


Dr. Evans is one of the most caring and concerned doctors I've ever had the experience of seeing.


Dr. Evans is the best doctor I've ever had. He shows concern for all my health issues, not just the one he's treated and looks to my overall health. My family as well as myself have full faith and confidence in Dr. Evans and his Wake Forest team.


I stated earlier, I have been with Dr. Evans over 12yeasr. I trust him over all the other physicians who take care of me. He takes great lengths to make sure I am doing ok & always ask how my family is as well as myself.I live in a small town where it is hard to get taken care of the way he provides medical service.


Dr. Evans is very knowledgeable, understanding, and the most helpful doctor I've seen for my condition.


He's clearly knowledgeable but was in such a hurry, I found I had no real opportunity to explain to him my condition. He also doesn't listen. There were several things I needed to explain to him about my condition but was not given the opportunity or I was interrupted. He was cocky and impatient.


Complete confidence in Dr. Evans and his medical knowledge and care...always takes time to talk with me on care and is very personal...


I have been a long time patient (+15 years). I transferred all my urology care to WFBMC from Alliance Urology in GSO when *Dr. Evans moved. I live in GSO & LOVE the new location in Greensboro, it's a class A building for the practice.




liked the way he described condition, offered suggestions and changed meds that didn't work together


Dr. Evans is an excellent physician!


10 times better than the one I transferred from.


*Dr. Evans is the best. More doctors should be like him.


Dr. Evans explains everything in away I can understand. He takes time with me. He is a wonderful Dr. if he was not that great I would not be driving 4 hrs. to see him. I have came a long way with my Interstitial Cystitis since I have been seeing him. In a good way.


He told me to be silent and listen to what he had to say. -need I text more after waiting 2 hours, 1 1/2 in a closed door room


*Dr. Evans is an outstanding urologist. I am so pleased he was able to identify my problems & a cure.


If you could clone Dr. Evans for all of mymedicL professionals, even with a lengthy wait, I would be so happy. He cares. He listens. He takes the time it requires to treat me like a person. I have a stressful job and a toddler, and I take one of my precious vacation days to drive to NC, my dad (who runs a factory) takes a day off work to watch my child...all so I can see Dr. Evans.


Dr. Evans seemed to provide PKC - professional, kind, and caring attention.


Dr. Evans is the best when it comes to the disease IC!!!


Great Doctor!!


*Dr. Evans has treated me for years performed numerous surgeries. He is absolutely the BEST.


provider's verbal responses did not cause me to believe he was actually listening. I felt like he already had a diagnosis from the forms I filled out and exam of prostate


After years of suffering with the IC condition, Dr. Evans knew exactly what treatment plan I needed!!!


Excellent doctor.


awesome Doctor. worth the wait.


Dr Evans has help me and giving me a better quality of life


Dr Evans has been caring for me many years. I'm not sure where I'd be without his care and concern. in the last year he also changed my sisters life by making her a new bladder. I feel honored that he had maintained me as his patient when I know how in demand his specialty skills are. he is definitely the best urologist in the area and perhaps among the top in the country. we are fortunate he chooses to practice in our community.


Always recommend *Dr. Evans. Best urologist!!

Impressed with the amount of time Dr Evans spent with me.

I finally found someone I could talk to and he would listen. He talked to me not at me, that was different from my experience with other M.D.'s.


*Dr. Evans was wonderful! Don't know how he was all the time to give all of his patients such great care, but I've been told he does.


ultimate confidence in Dr. Evans! I know my well being is in his best interest!

Dr. Evans is the best to me.


I waited over an hour before the doctor came in. He asked some questions to start & then asked me to complete some screening questions (on paper) that he seemed surprised to learn the nurse had not already had me do.
