Excellent care very caring doctor 100%

I felt rushed. I am concerned by him saying I should be back to average action for a 77 year‐old. I want and expect to be back to where I was a month ago which is much better and active than the average 77 year‐old. I felt belittled.

When I injured my leg and went to the emergency room, this was the MD;s name that was given to me to see. I was very pleased with the choice, he was kind, and professional, made me feel he was attentive to my needs and comfort.

Felt very comfortable with Dr. Evans. Answered all my questions. Made a traumatic experience for me easier. 100%
I am writing this on behalf of my mother. She has dementia and resides in a nursing home. Dr. Evans was always respectful. His questions were directed to her compared to other experiences I've had where the provider spoke to me and not my mother. He also listened to our goals of care and expected outcomes at our first visit when my mom was noted to have a broken arm after a fall. I am happy to report that my mother achieved those goals. I am appreciative for the kindness extended to her. 100%
Wait time for appointment was excessive due to massive traffic jam during morning rush hour ‐ not the doctor’s fault! 100%
Dr Evans had someone cast my wrist. This person did a poor job and now I have to go in and have a new cast put on. This cast is
horribly painful and too tight. I told him this but he didn’t listen. Now I have to go back and hopefully will receive better care. My fingers are almost numb and this is a real problem.

He was very pleasant, confident. I felt very at ease with him. 100%
