Dr Humar is phenomenal.

9/26/2018
Best doctor ever.

9/19/2018
THis office and its staff are very efficient. It is a busy office but you wouldn't realize it as the flow of patients goes on without delay. Dr. Humar is wonderful. I always come with a list of questions and he sits and answers everyone of them. Before he gets up he asks me if there is anything else he can answer. He is such an amazing doctor. So gracious.

9/12/2018
while my surgery and recovery were rather puzzling and complex at times, the doctor, his team, and the entire staff were very supportive, attentive, and courteous all through my extended stay in ICU and post-release. I owe them all, especially my doctor, my life and return to normalcy.

9/12/2018
In addition to being a great surgeon, Dr. Humar has wonderful people skills. He has consistently explained my situation with great clarity and answered all of my questions.

Dr. Humar and his team (especially his nurse coordinator, Casey) have always afforded us as much time as we needed to discuss any health issues or concerns we've had. He and his staff are kind, concerned and knowledgeable. They are approachable and never feel a question is a waste of time. All this with humility.

I love Dr. Humar! He is one of the best doctors I have ever worked with.

7/11/2018
Dr. Humar and his medical team is the reason that I stay at UPMC. It's hard to find good doctors - doctors who listen, show compassion and concern, and don't talk down to you. Dr. Humar is very respectful, listens carefully, and seems to follow my health very closely.

I am currently in my senior year in pre-medicine, and I can only hope to become half the doctor Dr. Humar is. He provides knowledgeable and compassionate care every visit every single time. He strives to both inform and be informed when interacting with his patients. He is the epiphany of miracle workers.

6/27/2018

5/9/2018
Dr. Humar is an amazing physician! I would highly recommend! He is very personable, patient, and respectful. He has always made me very comfortable and I felt safe with him operating on me. He took great care of me while I was recovering in the hospital and listened to every one of my needs. I would rate him higher than a 10 if I could. The only negative thing is that sometimes we have to wait over an hour to see him to come in for check ups, but that is not his fault!

5/2/2018
Dr. Humar, Dr. Hughes and the entire staff at UPMC are wonderful people who care about their patients. They all helped to save my Mother's life and my family and I are eternally grateful! we are fortunate to live in Pittsburgh, the best place in the WORLD for a living Liver Tranplant!

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!

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.

12/6/2017
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.

10/11/2017
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.

10/11/2017
Dr Humar and the rest of the staff were fantastic.

10/11/2017
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.

10/4/2017
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.

9/27/2017

9/6/2017
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.

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.

5/17/2017
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.

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

4/3/2017
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.
