I have been seeing John Evans for almost 3 years and he has never once made me take a drug test. He knows I am a regular cannabis user because I'm honest with him regarding this subject and we discuss the pros and cons of cannabis during almost every single visit. He works with me on this. He prescribes me the right meds for my psychological condition while keeping in mind that I'm a cannabis user so as not to give me something that could mess my mind up even worse than it already is. Is pot good for me to be taking with a psychological condition? Yes and no. But that's why I'm honest with him about everything I take. So that he can treat me properly. Besides that the man has a BS detector like you wouldn't believe so there really isn't any point in lying to him because he's going to know. Anyways, my experience with JOHN EVANS, ARNP has been very POSITIVE and I highly recommend his services.

REVIEW FOR INTERNAL MEDICINE ASSOCIATES OF RICHLAND: DR. JOHN EVANS, ARNP – When I first found this office I was happy knowing that I had finally found the answer to all of my health questions, although I’m very sad to say that my opinion was quickly altered. When my boyfriend and I arrived, we were greeted by the slightly annoyed front desk staff. We continued to wait around 30 minutes before I was called back. As soon as I sat down in the room the nurse started taking my blood pressure etc. and then proceeded to tell me that “Dr. Evans” requires his patients to take a drug test…I was extremely thrown off by this but complied. Once I was finished the Doctor came into the room and the first thing he said (before even introducing himself) was “who is this? Your boyfriend? Are you sure you want him here? We are going to be talking about personal things.” Well yes of course we will be talking about personal things but who I choose to have with me is none of your business. Then he begins to take off the drug test results and mine came up positive for cannabis. I AM NOT AN AVID USER, I am a responsible adult who had a puff at the beginning of the month. Anyways, I was denied any healthcare because I tested positive. Since I found it (the pee test) a serious breach of privacy, I MADE SURE I knew that these results were to remain private. Dr. Evans then proceeded to tell me that my privacy is very important to him, blah blah blah, and that he only takes these tests for his own knowledge. Sure enough, about 2 months later I got a letter from my insurance company saying that they needed to investigate my visit with this office. FRUSTERATED, I called my insurance company and they said that Dr. Evans had submitted a claim for $275 and ALSO stated that I was a CANNABIS ABUSER WITH ATTENTION DEFICIET DISORDER. Excuse me? First off, after testing positive he wouldn’t help me anymore and couldn’t have diagnosed me with ADD in the whole 10 minutes he saw me. In fact, the whole 10 minutes he saw me he was too busy talking about himself and how he was the top 1% in the United States. I’ve been to many specialists before (Charlotte, Indianapolis, and Durham) and HE IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO HAVING THE ATTITUDE AND KNOWLEDGE a true doctor has. Really, I’ve never in my life had my “life choices” compared to Michael Jackson and Celine Dion, how humiliating. To conclude my TERRIBLE review, don’t give this man your time. Even when I tried having this issue taken care of, the front desk staff had said that someone would call me ASAP…of course no phone call. This man just looks untrustworthy and gives me a bad feeling. I know I’ve found a good doctor when I leave their office feeling relief and glad that I’m once step closer to feeling normal again, although this “doctor” gives me nothing but a bad taste in my mouth. As a prominent member in the Kennewick/Richland community, I will make sure that this experience is noted for future potential customers so they don’t have to endure the humiliation and time lost that I had with INTERNAL MEDICINE ASSOCIATES OF RICHLAND: DR. JOHN EVANS ARNP.
