knee replacement
It has been 10 weeks since my surgery. He is an amazing surgeon, and a very kind man. I was walking unassisted three weeks after my surgery and I am doing great now. He and his staff, including the physical therapy. Staff are wonderful.. I have been treated so kindly by each and everyone of his staff. I will definitely refer to him..

Excellent experience!!
Dr. Evans and his staff were so amazing. I had a lot of anxiety before surgery. Everything dealing with my hip replacement surgery went so smooth. After little over 1 year of misery, I'm so grateful to Dr. Evans.

This was my fourth appointment at GPOA (2 different doctors). This appointment was to review an MRI that was taken previously. I waited over an hour and a half to see Dr. Evans, and when he came in, we did not review anything together. (At the very least I was expecting a review on a laptop, as this is what my other doctors did.) So then when I asked a question about the findings of the MRI, he seemed somewhat peeved. So I said, “that’s ok I’ll take a look at it when I get home.” He then laughed at me, put his head down, and in a condescending tone said, “oh you can read an MRI? You’re pretty good if you can do that“. He seemed to be uninterested in anything that I had to say and spent a total of 7 minutes with me. The disregard I felt after this appointment assured me that I would NOT go back there. Because unfortunately, his colleague Dr. Liss, gave me the same impression-that I was unimportant & wasting their time. Good news is, I found a wonderful neurosurgeon in Dr. Lara Massie!

My Knight in Shining Amor
I cannot express how much Dr Evans and his staff have done for me. I have a little medical anxiety and Dr. Evans and his staff helped me every step of the way with my hip replacement. I put off surgery for two years because of my fears. From start to finish, I felt valued as a patient. They were always a phone call away. I have been given a new lease on life because of their dedication to me. I give Dr. Evans and his staff a five star rating! Thank you for your wonderful care and concern for me as a person!

Talented, caring and gifted doctor
I had two knee replacements done by Dr. Evans at Allegheny Valley Hospital. The first knee in February and the second knee in July. He changed my life for the better and I don't say that lightly. I went from chronic daily pain, nearly unable to get up let alone walk to getting up and walking with no pain. I feel blessed to be able to walk pain free. So happy I put my trust and knees in his gifted hands.

Dr Evans and his staff are the best! All are knowledgeable, professional, personable and extra caring. I recently had a hip replacement. It was the best decision I made. NO MORE HIP PAIN. I was walking with a cane in a weeks time. I walked into his office with NO assistance at my first month post-op checkup. I was released with NO restrictions at my 3rd month after surgery. I was pleased with the dr appointments, surgery and therapy. Dr. Evans is excellent! Highly skilled at his work!

Knee replacement surgery
GPOA is a highly professional organization, Dr. Evans is an outstanding surgeon. He explained the procedure for knee replacement thoroughly which relieved my anxiety. The staff provided clear and precise instructions for pre-surgery preparation. The surgery was completed without any issue and the surgery follow-up care was excellent. I am looking forward to having my other knee replacement.

PO visit following a total knee replacement. Nothing to complain about from the initial visit until today. Unusual to have total satisfaction with all I'm sure but as above totally satisfied. Surgery and recovery results are as were promiosed. Have already recommended Dr. Evans to family and friendsl.
