Dr Humar is my savior he saved my life him and his team. Every visit in the hospital he answered every question my wife and I had. I wouldn't have any other Dr or team. I thanked him a million times.
I fell that I got the best care possible for my problem
Dr. Humar is an absolutely excellent physician and surgeon. It's always a pleasure to see him- he takes his patients very seriously and listens intently.
During my time at UPMC me and my family have been treated with the upmost kindness and compassion. I tell everyone that this hospital is a notch above the rest.
always a good experience
I received great care from Dr. Humar and the Starzl team before, during and after my stay in the hospital for liver donation. I deeply appreciate Dr. Humar's willingness to perform a liver chain, as first for the US. It illustrates that the spirit of innovation Dr. Starzl's brought to transplant is alive and well at UPMC.
all experiences have been good
Outstanding and very professional staff. from the top to the bottom. Dr. Humar and his staff continue to exceed my expectations when it comes to medical care
my last visit with dr humar was delayed due to him being in an emergency unscheduled surgery. I do. it hold this against the provider at all. he was doing what needed done and I was happy to wait it that meant he was saving a life!
Dr. Humar is very pleasant and attentive to my health concerns. I trust his expertise for my care. I would recommend him to anyone who would need his special set of skills and knowledge.
THE DOCTO9R IS THE "BEST"
Dr. Humar is an exceptional great Surgeon. I have the best care with him and his staff. He makes you very comfortable and Is very concerned about your health. He was my surgeon when I had my liver transplant. This Dr. saved my life. I'm so glad that I went to UPMC and found him...

Dr. Humar is a great care provider and a truly nice and concerned doctor! He answers all my questions ! He takes his time with me and my wife without making us feel hurried!
I have received excellent care before, during and after my transplant. I am thankful for the whole team.
Dr Humar and his staff were very professional. This was a referral visit and first time visit. Dr Humar was not sent medical records or pathology reports that should have been in his hands and had to take the time out of his busy schedule to get those reports. I feel comfortable in his care and that he is very competent and very aggressive in the quick follow up to get the records he should have had in the first place.
Dr. Humar and his staff are amazing!
EVEYONE was fantastic!!!
I'm sad that my last post-op follow-up was last week because I love this doctor. I have had many doctors throughout the years and I work in a hospital, yet I've never met a doc like Dr. Humar. He truly is one of God's messengers. He's never too busy to listen.
good as can be
Dr. Humar is in my opinion an excellent surgeon. My experience donating part of my liver was excellent. I read apprehensive due to never having any type of surgery. everything was explained to me with great detail. The outcome was more better than I ever imagined. I believe that is due to the skill of the surgeon and all the staff working with him. My coordinator Rita was also excellent. She returned every phone call and answered every question I had. Overall a 10+ experience.
Dr. Humar is fantastic!

Dr. Humar is a class act and a wonderful human being. I am so grateful to have been able to meet and work with him. He was very calm, caring, wise and skilled at his calling. He is a hero, truly.
Everything went fine except Dr. Humar seemed extremely busy and there was an unusual wait time approx. 1 1/2 hrs. He is usually on time, but no big deal. He is worth waiting for.

I cant say anything but great things about all of the people I have to deal with in your hospital, Thank you to all.
Overall, any concerns or questions I have are answered by either my transplant coordinator or the doctor quickly.
Dr. Humar and his staff are top of the line. I can't imagine being alive without his brilliance as he performed a "live donor" liver transplant on me 3+ years ago.
Doctor Humar is the BEST!

Best doctor ever.
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.
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.
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 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.
Dr. Humar is an excellent care provider and listens to all my concerns.
Dr. Humar always provides the best care, my concerns are addressed, and I can leave the office at peace.
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.
Dr. Humar is amazing. I would recommend him to everyone I know.
Everything was great with Dr. Humar

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!
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!
Our experience is always excellent when we visit this office. We are blessed with the best team, office staff and coordinators we could ever ask for. We would never go anywhere else for a serious illness. UPMC & UPMC Montifore is the best!!

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!
Dr. H is fantastic
I'm a biology/pre-medicine major at Pitt-Johnstown, and I can only hope to be the exceptional care provider that Dr. Humar is someday. He truly has a gift for saving lives, and his compassion gleams through when people really need it the most.
I have always felt comfortable from the day I walked into upmc
Very satisfied with Dr Humar.
Always carefully listens and provides thoughtful answers. excellent care!
I received very good service with all the people that was involved in my visit .
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.
The provider, Dr. Humar, was one of the best I have ever had. There are not enough words to say how grateful I am for him.
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.
One month post op visit. Went well, answered all my questions and concerns.
