I became associated with Dr. Tevar due to kidney donation. He is an excellent provider and at no time did he make me feel like it was something I had to do. Even after surgery, follows ups, he made me feel like my time was important

Excellent care and experience!

this was the first time I had additional wait time to see the dr. however this was not a problem. Dr Tevar is very thorough with his patients. Dr Tevar and your hospital are the best. Thank you for everything you and your hospital have done for my son and I.

Dr. Tevar was incredibly reassuring during the process of kidney donation and has an excellent mix of warmth and professionalism. I could never thank him enough for his kindness and of course for the lifesaving work the whole Starzl center does.

dr Tevar was excellent with questions and provided compassionate and holistic answers He did not seemed rushed and it felt like he wanted to provide as much care and information to deal with our issues and concerns he also went above and beyond in helping us figure out our complicated inter connected health problems

Dr. Tevar is the best, high energy and always pin point on his responses and knowledge.

Dr. Tevar is one of the best doctors I have ever received care from, compassionate and knowledgeable. Also, he surrounds himself with the best possible support staff, that has his same caring attitude!!!

Both Dr. Tevar and my coordinator guided me through the Living Donor process with confidence and exceptional care.

Dr. Tevar is a stellar physician and surgeon. I trusted him with my life and he made my experience as a living organ donor better than I thought possible.

He was great. Really helpful with everything.

I would recommend UPMC for anyone requiring or donating for an organ transplant. They are the best!!

The wait time for this last appt was a little crazy. My appt was at 11:15 I was checked in and in a room by 11 but didn't have anyone come in till 12:20 and saw the Dr around 1.

my experience was very good all levels. Nothing but praise!!

Dr. Tevar is a knowledgeable, courteous and caring doctor.

Dr. Tevar is the best! He always makes me feel I made a good decision to become a kidney donor.

Having met numerous doctors over the last 15 years (for the various health needs of my husband and mother), I can sincerely say Dr. Tevar is the best doctor I have had the pleasure of seeing. Besides being an obviously talented surgeon, he has an exceptional "bed-side manner."

pleasant experi nice at starzl transplant center

Dr Tevar has been very attentive and explained everything clearly ever since the transplant.

I'd say Dr. Tevar is the best doctor I've ever seen. Very caring, personable, knowledgeable and certainly gives me the sense that I am in the most capable hands. UPMC should do everything possible to keep him here for his whole career.

Dr Tevar and the Starzl Clinic staff are the absolute bomb! They provide top notch care in a confident and compassionate manner. I am a health care professional myself and I know competent care when I experience it. I would trust Dr Tevar and his staff with my family's care.

Dr. Tevar is the top provider in his field, and approaches his job with exemplary professionalism and personable demeanor.

I have felt the care I have received has been excellent.


Dr. Tevar is my surgeon who performed my liver transplant on February 22, 2018. I am not exaggerating when I say he saved my life and I am so very grateful. His skill as a surgeon is only outmatched by his wonderful demeanor and bedside manner. I will always remember his warm smile that gave me so much confidence to make it through. Even when things were difficult. I cannot say enough about him and the staff. The folks at UPMC were fabulous and I always felt that when he was talking to me I was the most important person to him. I know he has other patients and is now saving others every day, but I always will feel that when he was with me there was nothing more important to him. He is a good man and I am so blessed to have him on my side. I hope others can have the same care I received from all of the folks at UPMC. The transplant team may be the best anywhere. Thanks Doc. You certainly are the best. God bless.

N/A - Quick and easy follow up appointment

Dr. Tevar and his team are outstanding professionals, at the top of their profession. Additionally, their personable demeanor and approach make it much easier for patients under their care.

I have been going to UPMC for 2.5 years. I am a kidney donor. Last week was my last visit. I was impressed with Dr. Tevar from the first moment I met him and that opinion has not waivered. I think he is an excellent physician/surgeon. He comes across as sincerely caring for his patients. You hear the term 'bedside manner' in healthcare; Dr Tevar has an excellent bedside manner. I feel very fortunate that he happened to be my physician.

All of my experiences with Dr. Tevar were excellent. He was very emphathetic, informative, and even though he is very busy, he never rushed me, answering all my questions.

I do not have one negative comment on my experience with Dr. Tevar or any staff I interacted with!

Dr Tevar may be the best physician in the United States. Wonderful man!

I love Dr. Tevar, could not be happier with the care he gives me.


My Brother and I are extremely grateful to be under the care of Dr. Tevar and Dr. Humar

Dr. Tevar is a consummate professional. There has never been a moment of doubt that the care and execution of my Kidney donation would not executed flawlessly. It is also important to know my comments about Dr. Tevar can be given to all the Transplant team you have assembled at UPMC. Each member, and there are many whom I have met during this process, deserve kudos and high praise. Job well done. Keep up the good work even if you feel underappreciated. Your surgical execution, post surgery recovery, kind words, bedside manner made my decision to donate a Kidney an awesome experience. I feel and know that I am blessed to have been chosen to help others. Thank you!

Dr Tevar and your whole staff at UPMC are the best. I have been to other hospitals and no one compares to UPMC. All employees (doctors,nurses,house keeping,maintenance crew) never said a harsh word about their jobs or the hospital. I donated to my son. He did a lot of research before the transplant and said mom we are going to Pittsburgh. That's where we will get the best doctors and care. That was the best decision he made for us. We can't thank staff enough

dr Tevar was outstanding. clear communicator. knowledgeable. took pains to address my needs and concerns. actively intervened when I made requests. very pleased.

Dr. Tevar is respectful, personable, and informative. His congenial manner and informed practice are rare and appreciated.

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.
