Dr. Tevar is the best so glad to have him as my doctor, really cares about his patients, always smiling!

Dr Tevar was awesome. excellent doctor, very professional, incredible bed side manner!

The Dr. was very pleasant and the my Kidney coordinator was on spot!


I have had an amazing experience here. I donated my kidney on Feb 16th on behalf of my dad who received his in October I was treated like a queen from start to finish. Dr Tevar and Elaine are amazing and I can't give this program enough praise my stay at the hospital was wonderful and the nurses were amazing.

Dr. tevar is a great human being and doctor. Elaine Lander is fantastic too!!

I can't say anything but great things about Dr. Tevar.

Dr Tevar was remarkable. He was clear in his explanation, confident in his ability to help our family and kind. He explained the kidney transplant process and answered our questions clearly.

Dr. Tevar and his staff provided the best care I have ever received. Dr. Tevar is skilled and caring and relates to his patients very well.

Dr. Tevar and Ms. Lander, my nurse coordinator, were outstanding . They went above and beyond what I expected. They advocated in my behalf and the doctors' bedside manner and professionalism were exemplary. By far, the best medical staff I have had interacted with. Very caring, understanding, and knowledagble. I can't say enough good things about these individuals except Thank You. From myself, my son, and my family.

Dr Tevar was measured and thorough in my care. He made sure I understood everything about the process and that I was comfortable doing my donation.

only saw Dr Tevar 1 time for transplant evaluation, very nice and understand man great BED side manor!

Dr. Tevar eased my concerns regarding the swap program and my inability to directly donate to my husband. He made me feel like my husbands case is a priority for him, which I hope is true. I appreciated his time and expertise.

My concern was that I'm always tired, and Dr. Tevar said that is normal and I'm doing great and I'll get better and better and I'm very happy with that info.

Dr. Tevar is the best all the way around

Dr Tevar has been extremely nice, courteous, professional and although I know the clinic is very busy he always sits down and addresses every question that I ask. Dr Sood has also followed me for high blood pressure. Both of them are excellent providers and I consider myself very blessed to have them as my healthcare providers.

Dr. Tevar is by far the best practitioner I have ever met. He's knowledgeable not only about the medicine related to transplants, but the psychology of both donors and recipients. As busy as he is, he always makes time for his patients and I always leave the office feeling like I had his full attention. It's obvious that he is passionate not only about his patients, but the overall success of the transplant program at Starzyl Institute.6

I am impressed with Dr. Tevar's care. His concern, compassion and time spent with me is excellent. I've already recommended the Transplant Program at Hamot to others due to the staff's commitment and care.

Dr. Tevar and the entire staff have been amazing and I have had a great experience with them.

Dr. Tevar and Angela Barber are the best! They made my kidney donation the best experience possible - even when I was so sick and in lots of pain they had me come in as often as I wanted for checkups and reassurance.

The entire Starzl team that I deal with is fabulous. Specificly Dr. Tvar and Angela Barber. My husband and I are so thankful for Dr Tvar and can't express our gratitude enough. Also, Angela is competent and takes care of you as though you are family.

Dr. Tevar is a great provider - he communicates his expertise in a very down-to-earth fashion, and his friendliness and true interest in my health is extremely comforting.

Dr. Tevar is one in a million. I hope the hospital realizes what an asset he is.

dr tevar is one of the best doctors I've ever had to deal with. :) he makes me feel safe, cared for, and like he's not just bullshitting me about things. i trust him and I'm glad that he's my doctor.

was never a bad experience

I get weekly bloodwork for Dr. Teavr since my transplant. I receive calls from the nurse when I need to change the dose of meds. I called once after hours to make sure I was able to take allergy medicine and which one. The nurse got back to me with in minutes. i have had great care from the entire staff. i would recommend to any of my family or friends needing transplant to UPMC. I decided to have my transplant here because of the reputation of the program through UPMC. Living here in Pittsburgh knowing I have access to great medical care is the best.

Dr. Tevar was exceptionally intelligent, warm, and caring.

I do not have any complaints regarding Dr Tevar or Dr Sood. I saw both of them this visit and my last visit. I know they are extremely busy but both of them never seem to be rushed or need to hurry with my visit to go on to the next patient. They answer all my questions and explain everything. They are always pleasant and kind. I am completely confident in my care. I have worked in the same medical office for 31 years and previous to that I worked 7 years in a multi-specialty clinic. Therefore, I'm very much aware of being on the other side of a patient's medical care. I sincerely hope that the doctors that I work for treat their patients as well as I have been treated by Dr Tevar and Dr Sood.

It was a pleasure having Dr. Tevar involved with my care at upmc...Greatly appreciated his expertise with my care...

I receive excellent care from Dr. Tevar and the entire staff.

He was great

Everyone and everything is great except it always takes me 2 hours to go through this routine check ups. I have to get back to work. My vitals, blood/urine test, and seeing the doctor takes maybe 30 mins - the rest of the time I just wait.

I called for an appointment after hours expecting an answering machine and was surprised when my physician answered.

My experience was excellent! I would and have recommended UPMC's transplant team to others.

Dr Tevar is the BEST. Always takes great care of me.

very good as usual

I have always felt like the entire staff treated me very well. sometimes the wait time seemed a little long, but I understand they are very busy and considering all the people there they do an outstanding job.

Dr. Tevar is a very personal and great dr. I had a liver transplant and from the beginning he was great. So glad I had him.

Dr. Tevar is an amazing care provider and addressed all my concerns.

You are very fortunate to have him on your staff. He truly cares about his patients. I know if I have concerns he is available.

Except for my PCP, this has been by far the best experience with a medical provider and entire staff that I have experienced. I must say that Dr. Tevar and the entire team in the Starzl Institute for Transplantation do a phenomenal job in caring for the patients and their families. I am grateful for the care received and the time they all took to make sure I was properly attended to during this time.

Appreciate his offer to talk to other transplant centers and also information regarding Angel Flight. Hope there is follow through on this

Found that Dr. Tevar and his team spite the turnover of patients, worked closely together to ensure the visit friendly, addressing all concerns, and expedient.

Dr Tevar is an amazing doctor.

I was a kidney donor. Dr. Tevar and the Starzl Clinic are my follow up care providers. Dr. Tevar is always professional, attentive, cheerful, and has a caring attitude.

Dr. Tevar is a wonderful doctor. He is kind and respectful and he put my mind at ease whenever I had any concerns.

Received a kidney transplant in January of this year. I have had terrific care from the transplant team. I feel they given me a new lease on life and I am very grateful for all their effort and expertise in my treatment.

I am Very pleased with my Surgeon Dr. Tevar. He is very caring and attentive to my concerns. He has the Best "bed side manors". I feel very confident in his medical care.


I've had a double lung transplant as well as a kidney transplant there. Also numerous other related issues taken care of there. When I'm not there getting repaired I feel like I'm 25. But I'm 65. I have loved every person I have ever come in contact with, from the parking attendants, to the people who clean my room and bring my food, to the Doctors and Nurses receptionists , and on and on. Don't know how you do it. Number One.

Dr tevar is wonderful. so is my kidney coordinator maureen excellent care

We love coming to UPMC. Dr. Tevar is the best. Always answers all my questions. Reassures me that everything is going well. Would't go anywhere else.
