Dr. Devon Evans grew up in rural Massachusetts and went to Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He did his Residency at Beth Israel Deaconess in Boston, and his Fellowship at Brown University Medical Center in Rhode Island. He explored other areas of the country through ‘locum tenens’ positions in Martha’s Vineyard, Gresham, OR and Kealakekua, HI before coming to New England Cancer Specialists in 2007.
Dr. Evans is board certified in hematology and oncology, with interests in lung cancer, gastrointestinal cancers, and brain tumors. He is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Society for NeuroOncology, and the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He states “I became an oncologist with the hope of providing comfort and strength to those made vulnerable by a challenging disease. I am amazed every day by my patients as they fight to live their lives in spite of their cancer, and refuse to let it define them. Their courage remains my inspiration.”
Dr. Evans lives in Cape Elizabeth with his wife and three daughters. His outside interests center on enjoying the wonderful outdoor attractions of Maine with his family: skiing in the winter, and running, swimming and boating during the summer.
