I brought my son to Dr. McEvoy after he had been puking 15+ times a day after having had the flu. She was kind at first, but very quickly, based on limited information, decided I was negligent by not returning for another visit even though I had been communicating through messaging with her about his condition and the need to try different meds. His condition takes months to heal and he was improving. She didn't believe me, ordered a lot of unnecessary tests, and revoked his homebound forms which are what allowed his to miss school and get help with make-up work. He was forced to return to school still puking after a night without any sleep because of this. When we went back to see her she was cold, judgmental, condescending, and didn't listen to me. I am the one who is with him nearly 24/7, yet she didn't think my constant observations were of value, only blood tests. She caused so much harm to me and my son during a very difficult time. What she did was unconscionable

The only confirmation that I had of the appointment was a simplistic text to my phone. When we arrived from an hour away the nurse told us that our appointment was supposed to be virtual and was annoyed that we didn't know that. The front desk receptionist then went on to ramble about COVID being a simple cold and that everyone was going to get it anyway and that people should just get over it. I was shocked that someone in the medical field would talk this way. Dr. McEvoy evidently agreed to see us and entered the room by saying, "you are here for nausea?". She had a rude tone from the start. I'm not sure if she even introduced herself. I had kept a food journal for 10 days that nobody wanted a copy of or even wanted to look at. I had gone to a pediatric GI hoping for some hand holding and compassion. My 12 year old has been miserable for months and our pediatrician said this would be the next step. If you are looking for compassion or any type of bedside manner, GO SOMEWHERE

I agree with others. Wish I had read reviews before I went. My daughter has had terrible stomach pain for a year. They did order an Xray which showed some issues but just did cleanse for a wkend and she was still in pain. Did not want to do further testing to discover why she was in pain. Took them 12 days to get back with me, even when I left multiple messages, and then they just put her on meds. Meds which have the side effect of constipation- one of her issues. Seeking a second opinion.

My special needs son needed to be evaluated for a metabolic disorder exam. Not given. Her suggestion was a colonoscopy cleanse in the hospital and then 1 year of chronic diarrhea to learn him to poop correctly. He is a middle schooler!!!!! I took him home, applied essential oils and massaged his abdomen. He has pooped everyday since then. WITHOUT the trauma of a cleanse. SMDH. Absolutely one track mind. No alternative was discussed. And I was not educated enough to understand the human body.

Mad Mom in Greenville, SC – Dec 16, 2016
Our child has a rare genetic disorder that complicates their medical issues. Dr. McEvoy seemed to be unwilling to research the disease in order to better understand the effect it had on diagnosis and treatment. This was in spite of repeated requests from us that she do so. She treated our child solely as an GI organ system not as a person, and with little or no success. While a patient of McEvoy our child was constantly having flares, after changing GIs they have been in remission 8 years.
