I trust my health care issues completely with Dr Evans and look forward to feeling better soon.


I have been seeing Dr. Evans for more than 20 years. in my opinion he is the best urologist in the business. great Dr. with a great personality. couldn't be better.


Dr.Robert Evans is the most wonderful doctor I have every metc in doctor I have to meet. So kind andunderstanding. He takes time to explain what's going on and the next steps to take and let you make up your mind he's an awesome doctor.


Dr. Evans is the best. He has helped me tremendously!


The results of Dr. Evans' attentions to my situation have been excellent. I am completely (albeit reasonably) satisfied.


I have been seeing Dr Evans for over 20 years and he is an excellent MD. sometimes you may have a longer wait time than 15 minutes.


I love Dr. Evans


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.


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.


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.


Dr. Evans is very knowledgeable and explained the tests, diagnosis, and treatment options to me. I have a lot of confidence in him and am thankful he is able to treat my condition.


Dr Evans- Excellent approach to patient and care.


Time management needs to be addressed.


I think that Dr. Evans is an excellent physician. He is so compassionate and always is so very understanding.


I have chronic Interstitial cystitis and this Dr. is the best I have found with my driving area.


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


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.


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.


He "shushed" me when I was trying to talk to him. I almost walked out.




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


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.


Dr. Evans is the best doctor I have ever had. He understood my problem and found an excellent solution. As a surgeon, he did exceptional work on me. He gave me my life back.


I never felt that I was being rushed. It was a relaxed atmosphere.


Dr. Evans met or exceeded all my expectations


I have recommended Dr. Evans to many patients over the years in has been my physician.


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


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.


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


Dr. Evans has excellent bed side manner


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


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


Top notch care from all providers.


dr. evans did a TURP on me in 2006 after another group let me suffer fo fifteen years. I have had a great nine years and hope this next nine years will be as good


Dr. Evans is absolutely wonderful.


Dr Evans is the best!


Dr. Evans is a excellent Dr for IC, don't know what I would do without him




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.


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.


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.


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


Top notch physician and staff.


The best


My first visit was a little rough because I don't think he knew how much I already knew about my condition. He didn't seem to hear me then but my last visit was completely different. He showed me more compassion and respect than I have ever received concerning my condition and my feelings in a long time. I hope every visit is just as wonderful.


I have seen many doctors over my years but none compares to the care and concern I get from Dr Evans. he is simply the best in his field. he performed groundbreaking bladder constructive surgery for my sister with excellent results , yet still treats my routine care as just as important. the true mark of a healer.


As I've said, Dr. Evans is the BEST. I love him to death. He is always nice, and he doesn't treat me like I'm stupid. I have a Ph.D. in biomedical physics and he speaks to me like a colleague, which I appreciate very much. In addition, he treated my pain when NO ONE else woulda?|. I am forever grateful.


Dr. Evans is a Gid send for providing relief from my medical condition interstitial cystitis. I would not be able to function without his knowledgable and helpful treatment with this condition. thank you for all you do to help us.
