The man walks on water. Allow him to have fewer patients during the day. Give him everythign he wants. Throw more money at him. Well...... hmmm.. . on second thought, I drove over from Raleigh which was a pain. New plan - treat him really badly so he will quit and move to the Raleigh area!!!! Yeah - that's better! Give him 25% more patients and shorten the work day. Take away his parking space and dock his pay A LOT!! Just kidding. The man is fantastic and I am jealous "we" don't have him at Duke. Forget UNC - they are awful.


Robert Evans is a superior urologist. I have & will continue to recommend him to friends & family members. This doctor has made a huge difference in my quality of life. Furthermore, he has a bedside manner that is second to none & he has a compassion & quality of care that is rarely seen in the healthcare field anymore.


He explained what was going on in my body. Asked questions as to what I expected from him and what he could do. Then asked if I agreed with what we had discussed. I felt as if he was concerned with me and my problem which was a big problem to me.


The best physician I have ever had -


we recommend Dr. Evans to everyone who needs urinary care. we love him and trust him with everything.


He was very late




Very good Doctors visit with an outlook of great confidence in the advise and medication prescribed, and expecting excellent recovery from my health problem. I have a scheduled visit in about a month with Dr. Evans --- Looking forward to it! ---- hm

Dr Evans listens to the patient and provides thoughts and info and does not rush visit. He is truly concerned with his patients.


Good visit.


The provider appeared very rushed, and did not communicate with me what he was doing. At times I was in extreme pain and discomfort and he did not appear sensitive to that.


I would follow Dr. Evans anywhere, and I know most of his patients feel the same way.


Great experience, great doctor in all categories. Very pleased with visit.

Excellent Physician, knowledgeable and caring person!


dr Evans is AMAZING


Dr. Evans was very thorough and knowledgeable about dealing with my condition.


This provider is a good doctor, but had to wait so long before I saw him my appt. was 10: a.m. saw him around 1: p.m.


*Dr. Evans has the worst "bedside manner" of any dr. I have ever seen. He can be very condescending to you and acts as though he could care less about your condition. He has always portrayed to me that he would rather be somewhere else.


Dr Evans is excellent


Dr. Bob Evans is excellent! He really cares about his pts physical and emotional condition. I wish all physicians were like him. He is an asset to our team at Wake Forest. He is easy to talk to and of course the most knowledgeable in his field of work.!


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


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


Felt confident that they could help me.


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

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.
