Highly recommend Dr Evelson!
For the past 5 years, I’ve had the pleasure of having Dr Evelson as my doctor. She has walked me through family deaths, sicknesses and even the loss of my beloved dog, Roni Macaroni. She is compassionate, highly intelligent and she always makes me feel like I am a priority. I recommend Dr Evelson without hesitation!

Dr Evelson has been my sons doctor for several years and we absolutely love her!!! She takes her time with him and is very thorough! She listens and and is truly interested in my sons well being. She is unlike any other psychiatrist we have ever seen for treatment. I especially love that she does not push more medications than is necessary and she has fine tuned his personal needs and he’s been doing great under her care! We couldn’t have done any better than her! Thank you Jessica Evelson!! You’re the best!!

Doctor Evelson is a great Psychiatrist, she takes her time, explains well. My daughters have been seeing Her for a while now, she always been very cautious and caring with their treatment, and her psychiatric evaluations of patients are well thought out-organized. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Evelson for her experience and for the way she has demonstrated how she cares for each patient she sees.

Dr. Evelson is absolutely amazing. She is the first Psychiatrist that I have ever had that truly listens to me and cares what I have to say. She treats myself, as well as my two sons. She has made such a difference in our lives, she doesn't just willy nilly prescribe medication, she takes serious consideration when recommending the best course of treatment and thoroughly explains any medication that she recommends and closely monitors its effect. She is kind and caring and it is very evident that she truly cares for her patients and what is in our best interest. Whenever I hear someone looking for a Psychiatrist, I am quick to recommend Dr. Evelson, I cannot express enough how grateful I am for her.

Dr Evelson has been working with my children for approximately 5 years. She is patient, professional and easy to talk to. She takes her time truly listening to her patients. Dr Evelson makes sure that her patients are active participants and fully understand their treatment. I have referred a number of people to Dr Evelson and they are all happy as well.

Dr. Evelson has been treating me for about 3 years. She is professional, yet easy to talk to. She prescribed medication which has been tweaked from time to time. I have no side effects. I look forward to speaking to Dr. Evelson each month.

The only problem is her practice's inefficiency, Compass health is like a Retail chain store, they are good at collecting no show up fees, but they do not deliver customer service. The call center its horrible, Candace never returned my phone calls and texts, very rude people hope Dr. Evelson open her own office.

Jessica is awesome. She is so soft spoken. She doesn't try to rush you out of her office. She always makes sure to ask me how things are going, she even remembers little details about my life and always asks me about them. She doesn't try to over medicate you and is just very comforting to have as my doctor. She used to be close by until she moved to another office further north. I chose to drive the 45 minutes north because I trust her as my doctor.

Personally I love Dr. Evelson. She addresses my concerns and she is not big on just stock piling you with medicine. The only thing I would mention and would hate to have put against her score is the lack of friendliness from the front desk staff.
