Patient Comments (6)
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Evangelista performed surgery on my 17 year old daughter. He chose to do a much less invasive procedure than 3 others suggested which cut recovery time in 1/2. Eight mos later she has recovered well and finally has a stable knee. Dr. E was amazing throughout, taking time to answer questions and walking my daughter thru entire procedure using the MRI to show her what he was doing which we really appreciated. Would highly recommend him and his staff is great as well.

Dr. Evangelista has done two meniscus repairs on me. My right knee in 2013 and left knee in 2016. Both surgeries were successful and he made me feel comfortable with full disclosure before and after the surgeries.I find him to be extremely competent and with the highest degree of integrity. The Evangelista Team delivers results with professionalism like Amanda (PA) and Jessica providing pre-op / post-op support. This is the best there is and I recommend him with confidence

He is great. Spends time and listens. Great office staff. He replaced my knee 4 years ago and have never had pain or other problem.

In my opinion Dr. Evangalista and his assistant Amanda, are the greatest and most confident surgeons in the Phoenix area. He did an excellent job on my hip replacement and I was able to be home from my initial rehab in just 10 days. I never had any complications and the incision never had any pain or complications. I would highly recommend anyone needing one or more of his services to seek an appointment ASAP. Thank you so much Dr. Evangelista and staff.

Dr Evangelista is very knowledable and takes the time with you to explain your options when it comes to your prognosis. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr. Evangelista repaired my torn Achilles tendon and he did a fantastic job! He and his staff did a great job of explaining the procedure, properly set my expectation for recovery and were there to help and answer questions through the whole process. 1 year after surgery I have re-gained 99% of function and am running, jumping, playing sports and living my life uninterrupted. 5 stars.
