I believe care must be customized
to each patient because the practice
of medicine is not a “one size fits all”.

PERSONAL

Date of birth: May 28, 1971
Place of birth: Jacksonville, Florida
Spouse: Joilynn Marie Evans, M.D.
Children: Thomas, Lucy, & Violet

Served on St. Michael’s Parish School Advisory Board 6/2014-6/2017. During my training as a Gastroenterologist, I rotated ½ of my last year with my current practice and started learning ERCPs. Then I applied and interviewed for a 4th year fellowship in therapeutic endoscopy. After a few interviews, I chose the

University of Florida for my training. There I did a lot of therapeutic endoscopy with a major focus on EUS and ERCP.Then I relocated to Louisville to join the same practice that I initially trained in and work at the hospital that I knew had superior staff to do advanced endoscopy.

Since starting in private practice, I have done ERCP and EUS throughout, with a focus on those procedures while practicing general GI. As I gained more experience in my practice, I have grown more confident in my abilities. However, I have continued to attend courses to keep up to date with the latest research and techniques in therapeutic endoscopy.

In 2017, I have made some major changes in my practice. I made an exciting decision to join Louisville Gastroenterology Associates in Louisville, KY. They are long-standing, experienced group, closely affiliated with Norton Healthcare. Norton is a well-integrated network in and around Louisville with a comprehensive
cancer institute.

With regards to therapeutic endoscopy, I will be attending more courses throughout the year to offer endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in addition to all other therapeutic endoscopic procedures I currently perform. I have been accepted into the corporate-sponsored Olympus ESD Masterclass May-September 2017. I will be attending the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) STAR program suturing course in June 2017.
