I was diagnosed with breast cancer just before Christmas last year. I went through the different tests necessary and ended up having surgery Feb 12 with Dr Nora Evans. It was only a lumpectomy but I was still nervous because my sister died with breast cancer years ago so when they woke me up and she was smiling when she visited me before release, I knew it was good news. Thank you so much Dr Evans. My time with recovery was so easy and I'm sold with her no matter what comes after this. She's great.

This place is ALWAYS ALWAYS over book. Front desk is in constant chaos trying to manage so many clients at once. I do not recommend this place. Doctors are always spending little time w us because they are trying so hard to get numbers. I don’t feel welcome. The front desk and the manager are well trained to give people excuses.

Several surgeons in the area we not comfortable operating on me in laguna and Irvine. Both referred me to the same women, Nora Evans. Dr. Evans seemed undaunted and scheduled me for surgery 2 weeks later For robotic colon surgery. I went home in 3 days with almost no pain. She is my hero. She even hugged me! She is the best . My Hero

Dr. Evans performed a challenging 5 hour surgery on me recently. I am so grateful to and for her skill, professionalism, concern, and kindness. She consistently communicated clearly and realistically regarding the surgery and recuperation. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely physician to others or to place myself in her care again. Dr. Evans offered much more than objective medical care and that meant so very much to my family and to me.

Had serious pain..she scheduled CT scan. Results were available the next day. She has never called with my results info @ 1week+ now. Finally requested results to be sent to Primary Care physician, whom immediately told me I have a very serious condition that requires immediate surgery!! Wondering how long it will take her to ever review my results and follow -up? Will be going elsewhere for the procedure. Office staff on the other hand is 100% fabulous!!
