About Dr. Evans

Philosophy of care

Prevention is preferable to treating an ailment, but when ailments do happen, I believe in treating the root of the problem and improving overall functionality. I pride myself on finding the actual cause. Regarding sports, my philosophy is allowing participation as long as it is safe for the athlete, teammates and others in the game. Exercise and motion not only improve your physical and psychological health, but also help you develop better relationships, communication and leadership skills and everlasting positive experiences.

Why I entered medicine

I am the son of a hospital nurse and a carpenter and a blend of the two. I frequently went to nursing meetings with Mom as a child and remember being fascinated by how medicine works. The structural understanding needed for carpentry and sports medicine started with Dad. He also taught me to speak with customers in terms they could understand and to account for their hardships. That helps me understand the demands on today’s "industrial athletes" – frontline workers who put their bodies on the line each day to perform critical jobs – and to dive into any limitations a patient may have.

Community involvement

I live in the Mountain Top area and spend as much time with my kids as I can, volunteering as a coach for their various sports.

Personal interests

I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy sports, working on cars, carpentry and DIY projects. I involve my kids as much as possible in these activities and love seeing the looks of pride and joy on their faces as they learn.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
