That provider was extremely supportive and listened to our concerns and encouraging. I love him and would come to him for any future concerns. Thank you.

Dr Evans always is completely attentive and genuine in his care and treatment of our son. As soon as I got off the video visit with Dr Evans, I told my husband "I have to make sure I complete the feedback survey and say that was the best video visit we've ever experienced". Dr Evans was on the video visit at exactly time it was scheduled, completely respectful of our time and the busy day we tend to have with our medically fragile son. He listened carefully, genuinely interacted with my son-the actual patient-as well as me, answered questions completely, discussed my son's progress and plans in an understandable manner, was completely professional and kind the entire time, and made us feel valued during the visit. I wish all video visits, as well as in-person visits, went like this.

Everyone that was involved in my daughter's care was absolutely wonderful. We could not have asked for a better experience. They made her feel so comfortable while performing the test. Thanks for all you do!

Dr. Evans is such a kind and knowledgeable doctor! He treats my daughter with respect and explains everything about her asthma treatment plan in ways she understands! His treatment plan has helped her lungs heal so much that she will soon be off her daily inhaler!
