FIX the wait times!
Patient | February 4, 2017

The only negative that I have about the experience is the wait time. Like I've said Dr. Evans and his staff are great. I have every confidence in Dr. Evans ability as an eye care professional.
Patient | January 16, 2017

I do recommend him to others. I heard people in the second waiting room (after dilation drops administered) complain about the length of time they were made to wait. But it takes time for the dilation to occur. It is part of the examination. It did not seem excessive to me.
Patient | January 16, 2017

Like I said, too much wait time!
Patient | January 13, 2017

dr EVANS AND THE NURSES ARE GREAT the wait is not so great
Patient | December 27, 2016

I believe Dr. Evans is one of the best in the field and would recommend him to others, however, the wait time I would warn someone about.
Patient | December 20, 2016

Would love to recommend this doctor but I hesitate because he keeps you waiting entirely too long. Don't want to put my friends through a LONG wait time at the doctor's office! So, I probably won't recommend him.
Patient | December 13, 2016

very good
Patient | December 12, 2016

I have recommended Dr. Evans to others.
Patient | December 10, 2016

Would recommend but warn of the extensive wait time.
Patient | December 1, 2016

Questions to which I did not respond did not apply to this visit. This was a yearly, routine visit; I was not experiencing any problems.
Patient | October 31, 2016

dr. Evans is the only reason I come to this clinic
Patient | October 30, 2016

Just needs to spend more time with patient and not seem in a hurry. Should not have to wait 1 hour or more before seeing the physician
Patient | October 25, 2016

The best!
Patient | October 24, 2016

again. the doctor is great but not satisfied with the wait time
Patient | October 17, 2016

A good experience!
Patient | October 17, 2016

Very well conducted
Patient | October 13, 2016

I would not recommend this provider due to the length of time he spends with you and the time spent in the office. They are apparently trying to run as many people through this practice as is physically possible. Feels like an assembly line operation.
Patient | October 1, 2016

Good Experience, No problems
Patient | September 20, 2016

Love Dr. Evans, but can't recommend anyone to endure the waiting. Am going to plan on appointments early or right after lunch as I have no desire to spend all afternoon and part of the evening at an annual eye check-up.
Patient | August 29, 2016

Patient | August 29, 2016

Smart, decisive and good judgement
Patient | August 23, 2016

I always recommend this provider but warn them about the excessive wait times. Every visit is always about 3 hours from the time I get there till when I leave.
Patient | August 23, 2016

Good very good.
Patient | August 22, 2016

i would like to have more confidence in my doctor's informative for me. its not enough time, so I feel unsure about my health.
Patient | August 15, 2016

I would definitely recommend Dr. Evans to everyone.
Patient | August 1, 2016

Doctor Evans has a very good bed side manner, when you leave you feel like you know where and what to do from there, makes you feel like you were his best patient of the day.
Patient | August 1, 2016

Patient | July 29, 2016

Dr. Evans is the very best. I had very poor eyesight when I first met him. After surgery by him and excellent follow up with him and staff. I am now 20/20 in both eyes. I cannot say enough good about him.
Patient | July 28, 2016

Appears to be friendly at all times.
Patient | July 28, 2016

Patient | July 18, 2016

My only complaint is the long wait. I hesitate to recommend only for that reason.
Patient | July 6, 2016

Everything went good was pleased with everyone very nice and helpful.
Patient | July 5, 2016

DR. Evans is knowledgeable and takes enough time for me.
Patient | June 28, 2016

the wait times would keep me from referring this practice
Patient | June 26, 2016

I thought I halfway understood and when I went to get an appointment - I was clueless and could not get anyone that knew anything to answer the scheduler's questions and I got pushed out 1 month for an appointment with the SAME DOCTOR!
Patient | June 21, 2016

Dr. Evans is an outstanding doctor who spends as much time as any doctor I know with his patients.
Patient | June 1, 2016

Dr. Evans is excellent!
Patient | May 27, 2016

information than the avg. pt. Dr. Evans recognized this and talked to me in detailed terms I preferred.
Patient | May 9, 2016

My provider spoke to me about a possible future complication with my condition of glaucoma and cataracts and one of my medications which might need to be changed before cataract surgery and even wrote a note to my primary physician explaining as well. He was very helpful in all respects.
Patient | May 9, 2016

Patient | April 5, 2016

Provider good - wait time BAD.
Patient | April 4, 2016

this practice is overbooked so long delays are the norm!
Patient | April 1, 2016

Dr. was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Patient | March 15, 2016

Dr. Evans really cares for his patients
Patient | February 29, 2016

he was rushed because the office was behind... he rushed out of the room before I could ask any questions he did not seem that concerned and did not tell me or explain a lot in laymans terms.
Patient | February 11, 2016

Patient | February 8, 2016

Only will see Dr Evans
Patient | February 5, 2016

The wait time gives me hesitation in recommending this provider
Patient | January 31, 2016

All good.
Patient | January 29, 2016

Patient | January 25, 2016

Excellent Doctor.
Patient | January 19, 2016

As noted prior concerns w waiting time.
Patient | January 18, 2016

Refraction test given but not discussed and not covered by insurance. Same thing happened last at the first appointment last year.
Patient | January 16, 2016

I have no concerns with the exception of the excessive waiting time which I have already discussed.
Patient | January 11, 2016
