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.
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.
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.

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!!!

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.
they were all very good and were concerned with my needs.
Dr. Humar is an excellent surgeon and really cares about the patient and their welfare.

Dr. Humar is an amazing surgeon and is great at working with people.
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.
Excellent care and concern for my well being.

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!
These care providers Dunn, Humar and staff are GIFTS to mankind from GOD. GOD BLESS ALL THE ABOVE.
Dr. Humar is not only an excellent doctor, he is a very thoughtful, caring, kind and humble person. I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for him!
