“Fear, helpless, devastated all of these words and more describe my emotions upon receiving the diagnosis of breast cancer and so my journey began.

The first decision I made was to set a goal. From my primary care physician who began the referral process through all of my testing my surgeon my oncologist and Dr. Evans I have been blessed with the epitome in treatment from the best physicians in the world.

My journey was not always easy but by looking up, believing, doubting not and focusing on my goal, my faith helped me stay positive and strong. Although my surgeon removed my cancer it was Dr. Evans who was left to make me feel whole again.

He is compassionate, kind, caring above phenomenal but the quality I love the most is he looks you directly in the eyes straight through to your soul listens to your concerns and decides on treatment with you not for you allowing you to feel confident in your future.

Dr. Evans has achieved what he has set out to do with my care. His skillful hands have completed me giving me the opportunity to rejoice and be glad in the woman I have become.

I also want to say thank you to Sarah who like Dr. Evans looked me in the eyes, listened to my suggestions, gave of herself in creating the designs for my tattoos and even closed the shop to make me feel comfortable while she performed the procedure.

I will be forever grateful to each of them and can now say my journey is complete. And yes, I will dance at my granddaughter’s wedding!”

Hi Dr. Evans,

I am writing to thank you for the outstanding patient care your team provides! You and the leadership team in Plastics have developed a staff that exhibits warm, caring, professional care that I personally experienced at a time when I was not strong and confident.

When I was diagnosed with cancer, I remember sharing with you that I wanted the cancer to just be cut out and I didn’t care what I looked like. But, I truly wanted to look forward to the day when I would care about my appearance. You were so kind and patient with me! You understood and thoroughly answered my questions and put me at ease.

Throughout the surgeries, recoveries and numerous office visits, each of your staff members have treated me with great kindness. I witness your careful instruction and demonstration to Residents and the confidence you instill in each of them. They are very lucky to work with you!

I may work at UC Irvine but when I enter the physician’s office or hospital, I am no longer staff. I am a vulnerable, worried patient and leave behind my understanding of the system and my network of contacts. The clinic/hospital staff are my resource and I am grateful for you and the team in Aesthetic & Plastics!

“Dr. Evans performed plastic surgery to open my eyelids better and _____ my eyebrows. I am very pleased with the results. He has been very professional and concerned with my results and I feel very lucky to have found him. Very well skilled & qualified plastic surgeon.”
