Very informed and compassionate doctor. One of the very few I've encountered that genuinely cares about the patient and goes out of his way to find the root of the problem.

I had pain in my hips from years after falling from horses, getting into car wrecks, etc.. Dr. Evans gave me a few injections that helped to pinpoint were it was coming from. Then I had RF ablation and have been pain free for over 6 months!
