Dr. Evans is a superb physician in every way.


Dr. Evan is the best urologist I've ever had. He speaks to me like an adult and involves me in all the decisions.


Dr. Evans is a wonderful physician! He truly cares about his patients and takes time with them instead of rushing them out the door to meet a quota. That in itself goes a long way.


I was informed numerous times that Dr. Evans frequently runs behind schedule. This wasn't a problem on my first visit, but after seeing him I understand why and would not have a problem if he was running behind. He listened attentively to me, addressed all my questions and concerns, explained things very well, and worked with me on a course of action I am comfortable with.


*Dr. Evans has been the best urologist I have EVER seen. He has helped my bladder tremendously.


Dr. Evans diagnosed my health problem when 3 other doctors failed to do so. He was wonderful


Dr. Evans was a breath of fresh air compared to the first urologist I saw there a month ago. Thank goodness!


I've been telling everybody to come to you guys. dr Evans was so awesome. I have had such a hard time in my past with doctors caring enough and believing me. chronic pain comes with such a stigma, but he believed me and understood every symptom I mentioned and explained everything so well. he gave a crap about me, and I'm overjoyed that I have a urologist who isnt giving up on me.


I recommend Dr. Evans all the time!


Dr Evans is tops in my and I wouldn't go anyplace else for Urology care


I am so thankful we were finally referred to Dr Evans. We have been waiting 6 weeks for someone to figure out what the problem was after developing complications after surgery.


*Dr. Evans is an exceptionally good physician. I think highly of Wake Forest Baptist Health mainly because of him.


I was impresses the minute Dr Evans walked in the door. He did not act like he was better than me or my son who was with me. He immediately showed concern for my issues. I was super impresses.


very good experience


Dr. Evans is amazing you're system of having enough treatment rooms IS NOT.


I've only had one visit and no treatment yet so it's very hard to say I'd recommend this provider yet. But I have great expectations!


Will follow Dr. Evans wherever he decides to practice urology. You are very fortunate to have him on the WFU team.


Great!!!! Love these people!!!!




Wonderful doctor!


Dr. Robert Evans is a wonderful Dr. I wouldn't mind if I had to wait all day to see him. I don't care if I have to wait a bit in the waiting room, I know he is taking great care of someone else, like he will be taking care of me when I get back to a room. He is the BEST!!!


I was told this doctor/specialist was an excellent doctor for the condition or disease I have. he didn't show any concern or explain any of the medications he gave me. he didn't give me the results of my ultrasound that was done over an hour before he cane into the exam room. I was very disappointed in the care and concerns I was shown by this doctor.


Dr Evans is wonderful! He takes all the time needed to explain the challenge and the suggested solution to the patient. He is patient, kind, and caring. A fabulous physician! And very intelligent and knowledgeable as well.


I've been seeing this providing for over six years and would not want to see anyone else as he is an expert in the particular disease I have and rated one of the best in the country for obvious reasons. He also shows deep consideration for people in my condition by attending conferences in which he draws attention to the importance of this particular disease and finding the right medications for each individual and making sure the government understands this during a time when prescription medication has become an issue of abuse/selling among a small percentage of individuals.


I felt that while this provider was extremely knowledgeable about the condition and that I respected that. I did feel that I spent a lot of time at my appointment but mostly waiting. I also thought that they did not really listen to some of my concerns and listen to the individual efforts that I had/haven't done rather than grouping me under the condition.


Very good experiences overall on all my visits.


I had to wait 2.5 hours before seeing the doctor and then he was with me only 10 min. I had told the nurse that I had another appt. and she said she would tell the dr. Maybe that is why he rushed me through and never said anything about a follow up visit. He also acted like he was upset with me because I told him that I could not take one of the medications.


I LOVE Dr.Evans.He is the best! The wait is just ridiculous.


good/excellent compared to other urologist i went to .........


Dr Evans makes it easy to discuss concerns and issues without getting embarassed or intimidated


Excellent doctor. Love my visits with him.


*Dr. Evans - you're the bestest!


Dr Evans is great! you may wait a while to see him - but so worth it. Gives you his complete attention and as much time as needed for your condition and concerns.


very good experience with Dr. Evans- He was very concerned and helpful


Dr. Evans is worth his weight in gold. I am a Clinician . He is the exception, not the rule . Smart and Caring .


Once I got to see Dr. Evans, I was very pleased with his explanations and recommendations for my treatment and his easing my anxieties with the kidney stone.


I wish every provider on my care team was as concerned, caring, efficient and helpful as Dr. Evans.


thank you


*Dr. Evans was knowledgeable and helpful in evalute, my disease. I felt an added peace to find him and trust in his medical recommendations. I drove 5 hours to see *Dr. Evans and he provided the care I expected for a specialist.


Dr. Evans is an outstanding provider!!


Dr. Evans does not rush patients in and out. Hebis truly caring.


Dr. Evans is a very caring, compassionate, and highly intelligent doctor in his field. I see him for my interstitial cystitis and he also helps me with my fibromyalgia. He has been a life saver for me over the years. I have been seeing Dr. Evans for 27 years now. I would hate to think where I would be without his help.


Dr.Evans is without a doubt the most amazing Doctor and person ever! I have been see him for years . Every single time I visit his office I get excellent personal attention from everyone!! His nurse Michelle is also wonderful and has always helped me with whatever I needed!!


Dr Evans address every concern you have at each visit. I always leave his office confident my concerns were heard and addressed


I have been a patient of Dr. Robert Evans' for over 10 years. I love the care he gives me and the knowledge he always remembers about myself and medical history. He is an amazing Doctor and I would recommend him to anyone!


most wonderful doctor!!!! dedicated and devoted to his work.


I have been to copious MD's for three years and he is the FIRST one who has shown insight AND suggestions to help me with my problem. Not only am I appalled by the perfprmance of the other MD's but I have decided that Dr. Evans walks on water. He believes his strenghts lie in his aumen for urology but believe me, his strengths are vast and much more prufound than that!


Dr Evans is excellent in all aspects of his profession and shows his intense interests in his patience needs and issues. A great communicator!


Dr Evans took a lot of time to answer my questions. he was extremely knowlegable about interstitual cystitis. He gave me different options for care and made me feel much more hopeful. He is an excellent physician.


Dr. Evans is the most amazing, compassionate doctor that I've ever met with. I would absolute recommend him to anyone who's looking for a urologist.


This doctor is specialized in a difficult to diagnose condition. i have recommended him to several others already. I trust him completely in my treatment options.


Good experience.


very thorough & concerned


I believe Dr. Robert Evans demonstrates what a physician should be: compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, and so very kind.


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


Excellent in all regards. A caring professional and a one of a kind individual. I feel very lucky to have someone like him taking care of the issues I am dealing with in my heal related areas of my life!


Excellent Doctor


I could not be more confident that I am in good hands with Dr Evans and his staff. I highly recommend him to my friends and family for their care. Although friendly and humble in his demeanor, Dr Evans is a true miracle worker.


Dr Evans is the best!


I have complete confidence & trust in *Dr. Evans.


if you make your appointment early in the morning there's a good chance you'll be seen within the half hour. if you make your appointment any later, there's a chance you'll be in the waiting room for two to three hours


I really appreciate the time, concern, and info.


Like I said, He's the best in the IC field and he takes time to listen and gives you many alternatives to your treatment!


Best Dr I have


Definitely would recommend to others!!


I wish Dr. Evans could be my GP. He's the best.


Dr. Evans is a wonderful doctor and his personal attentiveness and care is outstanding.
