    Waste of time and money. I went in there with extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, neuropathy/swelling in my legs, dramatic loss in mobility, etc. During my last visit, he suggested surgery on my neck. And when I expressed a desire to avoid surgery and told him I wont take narcotic pain killers, he became frustrated and said, "I don't know you. I don't care about your problem. And honestly, I don't care about you." His staff also sent me to the wrong lab and they're now billing me $3500. Stay away!

    This dr. told me he had no time for me; nerve conduction tests were performed incorrectly by staff nurse & it took 1.5 years to receive my records from his staff with the help of a lawyer & subpoena. Do not see this dr.

    I saw Dr. Evangelista one time. He did take his time to listen to my medical condition and did have a plan for me to follow. My prescription got messed up by either Dr. Evangelistas staff or the pharmacy. I called to make a follow up, nobody answered the phone. I finally got an appointment set after being on hold forever. They called me back to cancel it. I called and made a new appointment, once again on hold for forever. They canceled my 2nd appointment as well. Will not be going back

    Very poor. Left numerous messages on their machine attempting to get appointment. I am a referral to their office from another doctor. 4 days and 3 messages, still no human. Many doctors available elsewhere. How they stay in business is amazing. Goodbye DR Evanglist staff.

    It's not very often, we'll never, that I ever want to go see a doctor. They often dismiss your problem and you without ever investing any time in to you. Dr. Evangelista is the first doctor who takes the time to access you with a real concern for your well being. This is rare and actually turned my viewpoint around about doctors, at least this one. His bedside manner is attentive and he deeply desires to help someone. I'm a believer in helping myself as well but with that approach and his caring

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
