Dr Everson, is kind, intelligent, patient, explained everything well, listened attentively to all my questions, and gave understandable explanations. Probably my favorite of all the doctors I have ever had.

I totally agree with the other reviewer. Dr. Everson has an easy to talk to personality and really takes time to listen and explain the situation/options to his patients (his explanation is easy to understand and makes you feel he really tries to help you with your health issues) and i never felt rushed with any of my appointments. I had a brain tumor surgery with him in May 2021 and i didn't even feel much pain (might be 3 out of 10 right around where the tumor was) after the surgery. The worst part of the surgery was feeling nausea for a couple of days after the surgery probably from anesthesia.

Dr. Everson is one of the best Doctors I ever had. He used surgery as a last resort and ensured all of my questions were answered and taken care of. Never felt this listened to by a doctor. I have had primarily telehealth visits due to COVID and all of my visits were not rushed and I felt totally taken care of.
