Dr. Humar and staff always provide excellent care for which I am extremely grateful.

Fantastic office. Friendly staff. Dr Humar is excellent

It doesn't get any better than UPMC. Dr. Humar and his team saved my life.


Doctor seems very interested in my progress after my transplant. Glad he is on top of it.

Dr Humar and his team provide excellent care.

thank you

Did an excellent job on my transplant. Really has shown concern for my health. Glad him and Dr. Christopher Hughes were the ones who did my transplant.

My concern about a family medical crisis and it's impact on my eventual need for a hernia repair was handled thoroughly and compassionately by both Dr. Humar and his nurse coordinator, Casey.

Dr. Humar is truly and exceptional doctor. One of the best.

excellent experience

Dr Humar and his entire staff are second to none. I trust him with my life 100% and the staff that support him are very kind and understanding.

He is a very good Doctor. He cares.

We can not express enough how wonderful our experience has been with everyone at UPMC Montifore and UPMC Presbyterian. They have become a part of our extended family. We walk into the office and everyone knows us by name. They treat us with nothing but respect, concern, care, and friendly expressions. I tell everyone and anyone with any health issues that are serious that they need to be referred to UPMC because they will get the best care ever!

Dr. H is fantastic

I have always felt comfortable from the day I walked into upmc

I'm a biology/pre-medicine major at Pitt-Johnstown, and I can only hope to be the exceptional care provider that Dr. Humar is someday. He truly has a gift for saving lives, and his compassion gleams through when people really need it the most.

Very satisfied with Dr Humar.

Always carefully listens and provides thoughtful answers. excellent care!

I received very good service with all the people that was involved in my visit .

all good

The care I receive from Dr. Humar is exceptional. He has such a calming, confident way about him. Through this entire process of being a liver donor, I was never hesitant in my decision to be a living donor, thanks to Dr. Humar.

One month post op visit. Went well, answered all my questions and concerns.

The provider, Dr. Humar, was one of the best I have ever had. There are not enough words to say how grateful I am for him.

this was the first time I ever had to wait. these things happen... he's a busy surgeon. however, it would be great if they put the order in for blood work before my appointment, because I could have had it done while I was waiting.

Dr. Humar is thorough & kind.

I have nothing but good to say about Dr. Humar. He is compassionate, professional, and answers all of my questions. In my opinion he is the best doctor I have ever had.

Monthly check-up on my progress with my liver transplant. It went very good.

Dr. Humar and his team are the best.

Dr. Humar has been the most professional physician I have ever met in my life. He is extremely qualified as a transplant surgeon and has the rare ability to communicate effectively with the transplant patient and their family. He takes the time to make you feel like you are his only patient and a friend.....he is a very special and gifted physician.

Dr Humar and the rest of the staff were fantastic.

This was my last visit to Pittsburgh after having an islet cell transplant over 2 years ago. Dr. Humar was incredible every time I saw him. He is kind and patient. He worked so hard to give me my life back. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I'm forever grateful.

I showed up early, was seen early and was out of there way ahead of schedule. I wasn't called with my labs, but was told I'd only get a call if they were out of range and I told them I check them on the portal anyway. Great provider, which is why I come here from Tampa.

Dr. Humar cares about his patient's well-being. He takes whatever time is needed to solve any medical issue. He is kind, professional and patient.

I feel I had the best team that a person could have. I know that God chose this team for me Dr Humar is very caring, kind, and loving. His team is second to none!

The Doctor and staff is very knowledgeable professional and caring

No problems here. Good experience.

My provider is very detailed in my care and takes his time to explain the recover aspect of my surgery. He is very thorough in his post surgery evaluation.

he is a very good dr. I trusted him with my life

Dr. Humar is literally one of top doctors in the world at the premiere transplant center in all of medicine. I don't know why a survey about Dr. Humar is even needed. Since, I've invested the time to fill it out, it is worth repeating what I have said in the past: He is the greatest healer I have ever seen.The Starzl staff is fantastic.

Dr Humar is very efficient with us when we have our follow ups. Covers everything and also listens to what you have to say

Dr. Humar is very thorough when discussing medical concerns. He ensured all of my concerns were adequately addressed.

Dr. Humar and the entire Living Donor Transplant team is absolutely incredible.

Dr. Humar is one of a kind. He treats patients like they are family, providing genuine care and utmost respect. I have complete trust in him and his expertise.

Very attentive doctors, nurses and nurses' assistants....more so than I have experienced elsewhere

Dr. Humar is the best doctor I have ever had

Dr. Humar is so concise and descriptive he answers every question almost before you realize you have any. He is so thorough. a true professional and expert in his field. He exemplifies the type of kindness and compassion you hope to find in every human being. He is always mindful and protects his patients' dignity as much as possible. he is straightforward and honest about risks, but exudes a quiet confidence that is both welcoming and reassuring. I'm grateful to have had him as my surgeon.

Aren't enough words to express appreciation for skill, concern, and follow up including weekends, nights, and holidays. Always there in person concerned about my condition.

Dr. Humar took immediate action with the eating problem I presented wiith. Better than the doctors in WV where I live. He did my Liver transplant in 2010 and I trust him with my life in any situation.

Dr. Humar and his staff were amazing and my care was awesome!!!

excellent post op care

I was able to see the doctor before my scheduled time. My test results of that day were already reported and accessed by the doctor. The team at the Wednesday liver clinic are efficient and caring individuals.

Best doctor ever! Makes you feel like you're part of the family And cares about you as a patient.

I have never had a problem Dr Humar has explained every thing in easy to understand he also used the paper on the exam table for pictures to show what would be happening during surgery. He is always willing to listen to concerns and provide feedback or answers

Dr. Humar saved my life performing a live-donor liver transplant on March, 21, 2016 and this was a follow-up visit. As with every visit I've made, he is engaged in all of my concerns and is very thorough in his exam, explaining test results and making sure I practice healthy decision making. Our wait in the examining room was short, but I would have gladly waited much longer, knowing he is giving each patient the time needed as we are all transplant patients.

Dr. Humar is an excellent surgeon and really cares about the patient and their welfare.

Dr. Humar is a very professional, caring and skilled surgeon. He cares about me and all of his patients.

they were all very good and were concerned with my needs.

my provider is very good about working around schedule, I have a 3 hour drive and they're very helpful if I'm very early or very late

Dr. Humar is an amazing surgeon and is great at working with people.

Dr. Humar and his staff are TREMENDOUS. My appt on the 12th was for a follow-up visit from donor surgery. I am extremely comfortable of the good Dr. Just love him and Sarah, my living donor coordinator!!

Actually answering questions about my transplant coordinator as dr. humar was called into surgery.

Dr. Humar performed my Living Liver Donor transplant surgery. Throughout he has been exactly the person I needed doing exactly the things I needed even when I didn't know what I needed. He has been an indispensable part of my recovery and has been receptive to my feedback. His guidance has been reserved but motivational. I can only speak for my experience, but Dr. Humar's ability to serve patients and heal people is clearly evident: I feel better as soon as he enters the room.

I could not have a better doctor or medical team. Dr Humar has saved my life twice. My hero.

Excellent care and concern for my well being.

very friendly and understanding about all my questions and needs

Excellent all around

I was very pleased. He explained the surgery in great detail and allowed plenty of time for questions.

Dr. Humar is always willing to answer questions and takes time to explain things that I'm concerned about.



everyone was a pleasure and most courteous

Dr. Humar and his nurse coordinator, Terri Larson, have always been both tremendously skilled and caring. Having had a live donor liver transplant at the end of March ,they have been my lifeline not only in my extraordinary care but in setting my mind at ease. Dr. Humar is a truly remarkable surgeon and man.

He took the time to answer all my questions. I left feeling very good about the appointment. That he cared about me as a patient.

I really like the transplant surgeon. Made me feel good to have my son in his hands.

Understanding that I would need Friday appointments he was willing to do this for me

Always a great experience with Dr. Humar, very caring and concerned about every aspect. This wait time today was unusual but due to his specialty and the importance of each patient it was not a problem to wait awhile, everyone is important.

Dr. Humar is an outstanding doctor. He always shows that he truly cares about his patients and it very intelligent.

Always get excellent care here.

great experience overall. Humar is great. I was seen in more than 15 minutes but that was my fault because I was late; not the office's. The reception staff is very kind and professional.

I have nothing but good things to say about my doctor and everyone else employed there.

The entire care team was wonderful, attentive, and made sure I received the proper care. The nurses and aides were very nice and professional. Dr. Humar made sure I knew exactly what the procedure would entail and was very personable and compassionate; he visited me and my father almost every day, sometimes twice a day to ensure that our care was on track and asked us how we are feeling. Dr. Humar is a very skilled surgeon and doctor and very compassionate and caring for his patients. We are very grateful to have been under his care as well as the other medical staff involved in the procedure and recovery!
