I can't say enough about Dr Evans and staff at GPOA's Brackenridge office. From making the appointment on everyone is very nice and helpful. I've seen staff take extra time for elderly without making it seem like a chore. Dr Evans explained everything about my total knee replacement, kept a check on it with subsequent appointments and saw me at 1 year out. I am so very thankful that I went to him for my knee replacement.

I just had my 12 week follow up visit for as total Knee replacement. My knee is getting stronger everyday. I have decided to get the other knee replaced by Dr. Evans. Him and his staff have been awesome. I highly recommend GPOA and Dr. Evans. I have been knee troubles for 30 years and it finally looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you Dawn and the rest of his staff.

Dr. Evans has now done 2 major surgeries for me. He has a wonderful, factual approach. He listens and explains in terms that can be understood. He shows imagery, and explains what he's pointing out and what he feels is the best course of action. He encourages patients to explore non-surgical treatments first if there's a good chance those will solve the problem . He also is very straight forward about post-op expectations and your role and responsibility in recovery. He's doesn't candy coat things and tell you that you'll be able to do cartwheels. You'll know what your limitations will be and the improvements that are expected. He's very candid about life style choices- Quit smoking, lose weight, etc.,, not to be mean, but with compassion and explaining WHY the changes affect your health, healing, and overall well being and how they will enhance procedural outcomes. He's the consummate health professional, he cares about you, by being honest and open.

Dr Evans and GPOA are an excellent professional orthopedic surgery group. I have been a patient for 3+ years and had bilaterial TKR in December 2019 at age 62. The surgery and recovery went very well and I was released to return to work this week. As with any surgery of this type the patient is also responsible for thier outcome. Physical therapy is extremely important to the end result and it is our responsibility to attend and participate listening to the Therapist and staff as well. Knee replacement surgery and recovery is a decision that should be carefully discussed with your doctor, he will guide you on your journey and I have to say Dr Evans was a honest, caring and most important the best doctor for me.

Dr Eric Evans has been my doctor for over three years. A month ago, 2/6/20 he did a full hip replacement for me and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He’s an exceptional surgeon with a great personality. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a orthopedic problem.

Dr. Eric Evans recently replaced my left knee. I struggled with knee pain and knew what I needed but I was nervous. I knew Dr. Evans on the professional level for 28 years because I worked in his office for 25 years. I witnessed his talent and demeanor and felt he would be able to handle my needs and concerns. I could not be happier that I made this decision and walk pain free again. Dawn his assistant handled everything perfectly. The receptionist and other desk personnel always smiled and made time for questions. Medical Assistance and X-ray acted very professional and gentle. The Physcian Assistance provided knowledge and patience in the hospital and during office hours. Thank you GPOA .

Even before my knee replacement Dr. Evans took the time to explain all my options and allowed me to pick the time when I was ready for the surgery. Dr. Evans and his staff were very informative, answered all my questions and made me feel as ease before and after my knee replacement. Definitely would recommend him to anyone dealing with knee problems that may lead to a replacement.

Dr. Evans and his staff were very informative and made me feel as ease before and after my bi-lateral knee replacement. I have healed rapidly and my range of motion is beyond what was expected and I contribute this to my surgeon, Dr. Evans, and his recommendation for therapy. Thank you Dr. Evans and staff.

Dr. Evans was recommended thru my PCP. I had consults with Dr. Evans over about an 8 month span on the direction to take on getting a single or double knee replacement. He was up front on the "pros and cons" of either procedure, as well as managing the problem until I made a decision. We both came to agreement on replacing both at same time, and I couldn't be happier. I'm still sore, but everything was pretty much as discussed on what to expect after the operation. His staff was so encouraging thru the whole process and made the decision seem so easy and correct. I have already recommended him to 3 others looking for knee replacement.

I had my right hip replaced by Dr. Evans. For months prior to my surgery I could barely get around and was in a lot of pain, but within just weeks of my hip replacement, I was back to driving and mowing my lawn. It's been wonderful being able to get around pain free. He and his staff are all wonderful.
