    Dr. Evans has been my doctor since 1994.  He was very sensitive and compassionate.  Dr. Evans saved my life by using extraordinary skills to make an early diagnosis and support me throughout treatment.  He was always there to serve my needs.  I will be forever grateful.  I am so sorry to see him go.

    I just learned of the good Doctor's passing. So shocked and saddened. I've been a patient for many years and never thought he'd be gone just like that. He was a wonderful doctor and person and I'm sure he'll be missed by all who knew him.

    Bill and I were close friends during the middle '70s. I met Bill in 1977 and developed a close relationship with him. He was a truly wonderful person to know as a close friend. His death comes as a complete shock to me.  I enjoyed his company and spent  a lot of time with Bill. So sad to read that he is gone. I will remember him  for all of the wonderful times that we spent together.  Richard

    Dr. William Evans was one of the last great physicians of our time he would listen to his patients & prescribe the very best healthcare that was available. He also had a a great sense of humor I would always come in and crack a joke or two and make him smile. During the years I noticed that he started hunching over but I always still crack jokes with him matter of fact last time I seen him, "Dr Evans you have to lead by example straighten up you look like an old man" he smiled at me and said you're right and he's straightened up as much as he could and I told him see you look like a new man he smiled and laughed. I was a patient of his for over 22 years of my life and I'm right now 47 years old so a little less than half of my life he was my physician and not just that he was my friend. What doctor would even give you his personal cell phone number if there was ever a problem he told me to call him direct. There was a handful of times that I had to call him because of myself for my wife he always took my call and took care of us as a family. You would not think you would be this upset having your doctor pass away but it feels that a part of me a close member of my family has passed away. I will never forget him my friend my doctor, Doctor William B.Evans.... RIP my friend Sincerely, Jeffrey A. Morden
