Dr. Evanson was attentive and listened to my concerns. He asked questions and the visit did not seemed rushed. He looked at me, not a computer screen or file, during the visit. He was honest in advising me on the outcome of the surgery.

Absolutely awesome!! I came into the St. Vincent / Carmel ER by ambulance on a Saturday afternoon with acute abominable pain. Dr. Evanson was the surgeon on call. He took excellent care of me and handled my case like I was a member of his own family. All the tests showed nothing conclusive. Dr. Evanson explained everything in clear layman's terms to me and husband and gave us options. I decided to do an exploratory surgery. He found the problem was scar tissue and remedied it in the same surgery. I woke up feeling great and have had no problems whatsoever since the surgery. His demeanor on the follow up office visit was just as good. He is down to earth, humble, and treats his patients like a human being with emotions and fears - not just a case to be solved. Highly recommend!!

Thank you for reaching out. Still haven’t decided about gall bladder & hiatal hernia surgery. Still not having any real issues with either. Thank goodness. If the need arises you’ll be the first to know. Thank you

Knowledgeable, friendly, excellent care with accurate information. This has been the best surgical experience. I felt like Dr.Evanson cared about my success and worked with me to achieve the best possible outcome. I’m glad I followed his advice. I have had people close to me use other weight loss surgery programs that were not even close to this level of care. Thank you!

Dr Evanston is adorable and friendly. I used to schedule the Bariatric testing and Endoscopies at Carmel St Vincent. I picked him to do my surgery because his patients had the least complications of all the doctors.

To put it briefly Dr Evanson saved my life! He was on call at the hospital and elected to perform emergency surgery rather than wait for his own convenience! I had no idea my belly pain was spas severe as it turned out to be! Thank you so much for being there for me!

Dr, Evanson is one of the best doctors around. He saved my life years ago and I am very thankful. He has preformed multiple surgeries on me the most recent one was July, 2020. He is straight forward and will not tell you what you want to hear. He has great bed side manners. His honesty and dedication to he patients is top notch. I would never let another surgeon preform a surgery on me. I highly recommend him. My mother is currently seeing him for a WLS and I would never send my mother to someone that I do not trust!

Dr Evanson is without a doubt the best Dr I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. He’s very kind, caring and very knowledgeable. He made me feel very comfortable about my surgery. At my follow up appointment he was so pleasant and made me feel at ease. He made me laugh and let me know that I was doing wonderfully and if I needed anything or had any questions to make sure I call. I’ve felt so good from beginning through now on this journey. I would recommend him and St. Vincent’s to everyone going through a weight loss journey. He’s the best and I’m very lucky to have him as my physician. Thank you Dr Evanson!!

Dr Evanson was extremely professional and very informative about the procedure. He encourages his patients even after the surgery, which is absolutely fantastic.
