Dr Tevar is the best doctor that both me and my husband have had. He is honest and straightforward but still really cares about how we feel emotionally. He always makes me feel like I am his only patient when he is with me.

i could not be happier with the care i have received from Dr. Tevar and his team.

Dr. Tevar and his staff are amazing! the BEST team of health care providers I have ever had!

Dr Tevar has changed our lives. He goes over everything with us and explains everything.

very kind,courteous

Dr. Tevar always takes time to talk to me and explain any concerns I have.

Love Dr. Tevar

very informative provider with excellant bedside manner. he is to be commended for excellant work but he needs to take at least 1 day off per week before he ends up as a patient himself.

alll good

The wait time between my talk with the Dr. and the coordinator (who I was supposed to see inmediatly) took more than 45 minutes.

very thorough, listened well, addressed all questions and concerns

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.

everyone is so polite love upmc

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.

The care I receive from UPMC Transplant Dept. is the best treatment and care!

This was an amazing experience! The information was accurate & comprehensible.

Dr. Tevar is excellent, my care at UPMC was competent, compassionate and a wonderful experience.

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
