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.

I am encouraged after my initial visit that Dr. Evans will be able to help with my problem. He was professional, knowledgeable and kind. I am so pleased that I was referred to Dr. Evans.

3/8/2016

I have had a year of too many bad experiences with the doctors dealing with my health issue in the Asheville/Marion NC area, and my trust in doctors has been shaken tremendously. Dr. Evans took the time to listen to what I had to say, and I could see he was sincerely taking my information in and was genuinely interested in helping me get to the bottom of my health issue. The nurse assisting Dr. Evans was very nice and very respectful. All of the staff I had contact with exceeded my expectations. They were exceptional.

Have had four prior urologists and Dr Evans is head and shoulders above all of them!!!

2/14/2016

Because of the care I have experienced, he has seen my husband and operated on both my parents. His biggest challenge now is to train somebody to be another Dr. Evans if he ever wants to retire.

2/9/2016

Dr. Evans is the best. I have followed him to the various location he has practiced. Because of his personality and professional care he has given me over the years.

IC Network IC Doctor of the Year. I'm just saying. He's the bomb!!!!

1/25/2016

I have great confidence in Dr. Evans. The only concern I have is the length of time I have to wait before seeing him. Previous visits have required that I wait about 1.5 hours past my appointment time. As I previously said, this time I waited 2 hours 45 minutes before seeing Dr. Evans.

1/24/2016

1/5/2016

He is the best doctor in his field that I have ever known.

12/21/2015

Both times I've had a really long wait. I drive 2 hours from Asheville too, however Dr. Evans may have saved my life by treating me with bacoflen. I had been suffering with prostatitis for over 3 years and had started to become desperate and having suicidal thoughts. Now I can live my life with mild pain, a bareable pain, so I can enjoy my children and enjoy my life. I'm not sure why my local urologists could not figure out what I needed, but Dr. Evans did in less than 5 minutes. I just wish he could educate the Asheville urologists, so I don't have to travel so far.

12/17/2015

I have recommended Dr. Robert Evans to a friend with a similar problem

12/15/2015

Dr. Evans has excellent bed side manner

12/15/2015

Dr. Evans is awesome - excellent doctor, very smart man.

11/18/2015

*Dr. Evans is an exemplary MD. As a retired MD, I think WFU should be honored he is with you & not the May Clinic.

11/16/2015

Top notch care from all providers.

11/3/2015

10/23/2015

Good.

10/10/2015

Compassionate, smart, innovative, thoughtful, and well informed. That's Dr. Evans! He always has information and new findings to share and always has a trick up his sleeve when I'm having medication issues or a flare. He is amazing, my respect for him grows and grows. Gods forbid he ever retire, there is no one like him in the field of interstitial cystitis! I so so wish we could clone him, it would help so many of my fellow IC Warriors to have his kind of care and expertise.

10/6/2015

I have told my other physicians about Dr. Evans and how he knows how to treat IC with Hunner's lesions. They both have sent him patients and their patients were very please with Dr Evans and his knowledge of IC and how to treat it.

9/29/2015

Can't speak highly enough of Dr. Evans and the time he took to address my issues. The wait (waiting room) was worth the wait.

9/29/2015

Dr. Evans was knowledgable, courteous, caring, and patient.
