“When I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I was advised that Dr. Evans was the best pancreatic cancer surgeon in the country. In addition to saving my life with his surgical skills, Dr. Evans also inspired me to be a lifetime advocate for the fight against pancreatic cancer.”
-Mary Sharkey, featured on ABC’s Houston Medical (June/July 2001)
“Faced with pancreas and heart surgery, it was comforting to know the doctors on my team were also top-notch medical researchers. The Medical College of Wisconsin gives patients in our hometown access to world-class treatment, backed up by the latest advances in research and scientific discovery.”
-Bob Uecker, Milwaukee Brewers
