I have recommended dr. Evans to others.


I wish all of my medical professionals were like Dr Evans...knowledgeable, efficient, truly interested in my overall well being, wonderful attitude!


dr evans is an excellent dr


dr Robert Evans is the only urologist I trust completely. he needs to be cloned!


Dr. Evans is an excellent doctor. He is very knowledgable and intelligent. He listens to what his patients have to say. I highly recommend him to family and friends.


Dr Evans is very down to earth considering who he is. He is an incredible person.


I would follow Dr. Evans almost anywhere. I credit him with saving my life.




Dr. Evans is an incredible physician. He is caring and compassionate.


I could not be more satisfied. Dr. Evans has brought a high degree of normalcy to my life.


Just the most EXCELLENT doctor in the universe. Honestly.


I always recommend him to all my friends and family that have IC


Dr Evans is GRREAT! He is concerned with his patients total health and interactions with all of the patients medical needs


Dr. Evans is wonderful I would recommend him to anyone.


I feel I am being well cared for and if anything opens up for me, that Bob or staff will call me.


Dr. Evans is the best in his field. The only Pelvic Floor Pain expert in the region. Super knowledgeable and helpful


dr Evans is a good dr I enjoy talking to him


For being a specialist in his field, I was hoping for his suggestions in methods of treatment, not what I thought should have been done. I was fine with his suggestion of a clinical study, but several weeks later I still have not heard from their offices. Again, disappointed in the outcome of this visit. I truly wish I could find a physician who is more understanding and sympathetic of their IC patients.


*Dr. Evans' rocks! That's why people like myself continue to drive 6 hours round trip to see him. He is very understanding of us, his IC patients and also knows EVERYTHING that comes along with having a chronic illness.


Always feel better when leaving even though he can't do much to cure my conditions.


I drive from another state in a town with excellent medical care just to see Dr Evans. I take one of my few days off from a demanding job. And it's totally worth it. I could go to the UVA medical center, but I would rather drive 6+ hours round trip. He gave me back a functional life with IC, and I will never ever forget that for the rest of my life.


*Dr. Evans takes great care to explain how to manage my chronic condition.


I absolutely love Dr. Evans. He has helped me so much. I would not change to another urologists for nothing . Thanks so much Dr. Evans.


After waiting so long he spent no more than 5 minutes with me.


Wait time has been excessive during each visit.


*Dr. Evans is great on every point & the best dr. I have ever had over a period of time. He's also collaborative with my other drs.


Dr. Evans is the only doctor I would see concerning my bladder problems. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner.


He seems to be a good man.


Give Dr. Evans a raise.


*Dr. Evans is not only THE best urologist but one of the best physicians in the U.S. He is compassionate and very skilled. I would not go to any one else but him.


*Dr. Evans is the best urologist/dr. in this area he has great memory for your individual health.


See previous comment. I have referred several people to Dr. Evans


As previously stated in this survey, he is awesome!


Dr. Evans is a wonderful Dr.


I was treated like a person and not a patient in room # sewing so.


Dr. Evans is a great doctor. He is very friendly and he listens to what I have to say. I trust that he knows what is best for me because his credentials give me the utmost confidence in him.


Very good experience.


Dr. Evans spent a great deal of time talking with me about how I was doing and he told me about current IC research/diet. We had a very thorough discussion about diet and following a gluten free diet. He listened to what I had been doing that has been helping me control my IC and he was very encouraging and positive. Dr. Evans took his time with me and it was very easy to talk with him. He is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor.


incredible Doctor who laboriously went through all my test results explaining my condition and planned care.


I have referred several people to Dr. Evans since i have been a patient. He is an absolute gem and we are beyond lucky to have him in our state!


Very good Doctor.


excessive wait and then 5 min blood test


Dr. Evans always listens to me and explains things in terms I can understand. I do not feel rushed, he spends enough time with me and is a quality doctor.


*Dr. Evans was incredible. Took lots of time w/me & explained things very well.


I can't say enough good things about Dr Evans.


Dr Evans provides all the time needed to cover my medical needs. I never feel rushed, knowing he is truly interesed and is willing to listen (an unusual occurance by todays medical professionals). For this reason, I am never concerned that my appointment time has passed without seeing Dr Evans - he is giving the time needed to care for another patient.


He spends the time with me, and always answers all my questions..


I love having Dr. Evans as my care provider. I can relate to him and understand what he tells me. He is very professional at all times but conveys a feeling family warmth and concern with every appointment.


My husband and I were really surprised and thankful that Dr. Evans was encouraging, confident in his decisions, very precise in explaining my condition, the treatment plan and future plans to us. He was very personable, empathetic, precise and so much more! We left feeling optimistic, hopeful and relieved that we finally found a specialist that listened and encouraged us that if this treatment plan doesn't work, not to worry, there are many other options.....after 4 years of seeing doctor's about this condition, suffering in a significant amount of pain; Dr. Evan's knowledge and prescribed plan has made a substantial improvement in the quality of my life in only a week of treatment.....He's truly a God send and I can't stress enough that feeling like your doctor is listening, hearing you and also empathetic to your situation can really make all the difference in how you perceive what the future holds.


The best!


Dr. Evans really IS the best in the nation for IC treatment and research. Really I'm lucky. He's a cool person too and the last 24 years with him have been God's way of giving me a break considering I have IC and all that goes with it. You all don't know how blessed you are to have him on your staff.


Dr. Evans makes the visit pleasant with his attention and care for the patient. Feel fortunate to have access to him and Wake Forest Baptist Urology as medical providers.


I've had this problem for three years. *Dr. Evans is trying to solve it - I thank him.


Dr. Evans is not the problem at all, the problem is actually getting in to see him. He is very professional and excellent 'bedside manner' but I have to schedule way in advance to see him.


Will follow Dr Evans wherever he practices. Have referred 3 other family members, two of which had surgery. Is a wonderful physician and person and an excellent example of a caring, concerned physician.


Dr is just fine.


Bob Evans is the best!


Dr Evans always takes time to tell me all about the condition I have and the treatment that he thinks is best for me.


Dr. Evans is one of the ONLY good physicians left on this earth! He treats me for multiple urologic conditions and is up to date on items which are important to me. He is an excellent physician and should be recognized for his results within his area of expertise.


I just warn people about the wait time.


I have nothing but good things to say about Dr.Evans and his staff.


Dr. Evans is extremely knowledgeable in treating IC and Hunners Ulcers. He takes time to listen to your concerns and gives you options available for treatment. He asks questions to give you the best possible treatment. He is worth waiting for because I know he is spending time with his other patients just like he does with me. He also takes time to answer questions my husband has regarding my illness. I travel 3 hours one way to see him as their are no urologists in the Asheville area that fully understand IC and how to treat it. I spent two years trying to find a doctor to treat my IC many how were not kind or understanding or knew the proper treatment. At my first appointment with Dr. Evans two years ago, he knew exactly how to treat the Hunners Ulcers and with his help I no longer am in excruciating pain. He also is on top of research that is going on in the field of IC.


*Dr. Evans is the best!! I would wait all day to see him... he saved my life... he gave me joy and tools to live, really live with IC!! He is a BLESSING!




Dr. Evans is a wonderful and caring doctor. I feel very fortunate to have a friend that recommended him. I will continue to be treated by Dr. Evans. The wait time is extremely long, but Dr. Evans is worth the wait.


Always takes my concerns to heart.


This was the best experience with a doctor in my life (I am 72).


I hope *Dr. Evans will remain in this practice for a LONG TIME! Excellent provider! Tries every thing he can to take care of my problems. Explains the problems & treatments thoroughly. He very patiently understands my other medical problems & considers them when treating -
