"As a resident here at UW/ Seattle Children's, I am fortunate that my training has been rooted in a culture of excellence. As a fellow in Craniofacial medicine, I quickly realized that caring for individuals with uncommon and sometimes complex conditions affords an important opportunity to partner with a team and develop our definitions of excellence. Surrounded by a community of passionate providers and researchers, I strive to answer questions that will ultimately translate into improved care for my patients. And I am inspired, each day, to work among a team of colleagues, patients and families aligned towards a common goal."

We met Dr. Evans for our 6 month old daughter, regarding plagiocephaly. She was great! she explained the condition to us clearly, enquired about her medical history and explained the options in front of us, clearly. We decided to go with the cranial band therapy, and after a few months her plagiocephaly is almost completely gone. Thank You!!!

I cannot recommend Dr. Evans enough. She has such a positive attitude and has provided thoughtful, thorough and researched care for our very young son (infant) with craniosynostosis. Carefully she has listened to us and answered all our questions with compassion. Her bedside manner is wonderful as she has always been respectful of our time, opinions and feelings. Appointments at Children's can be scary but I honestly look forward to seeing our team there and I am extremely thankful that Dr. Evans is part of it. She is a wonderful fit for our family. Thank you Dr. Evans!
