Having pursued studies in spirituality, metaphysics, and personal transformation for many years, Dr. Evans has recently created a core curriculum designed to share ancient spiritual wisdom with others in order to help bring health and happiness into their lives.

Good Citizenship


As dedicated as we are to bringing health, happiness and balance into our patient’s lives, it is equally important for us to be of service, helpful to the environment and those in need.

Some  of the ways we honor this is by giving 10% of our income to charity, and both Dr. Evans and Monique Class work for non-profit organizations on a pro-bono or reduced fee basis.

Dr. Evans is an Honorary Director for the Pain Management Center and the Madurai Charitable Trust, a service organization dedicated to assisting disadvantaged people in Southern India.

What are Patients Saying

Lindsey (Patient since 2009)

Dr. Evans is the most intuitive and caring doctor that I have ever had. From our first consultation, I felt comfortable and confident that I was in expert hands.

Jennifer Letitia, M.D.

After visiting six traditional doctors over several years with no improvement in my health, I was fortunate to learn about Monique Class and Joel Evans at The Center For Functional Medicine. In only a few months, I was feeling 100 percent better. My energy level and physical being was almost back to normal; my mental fog, exhaustion, anxiety and joint aches had resolved, and my metabolism improved such that I was losing weight. Class and Evans offer up-to-date medical knowledge in a personalized engaging way that elicits deep healing.
