Dr. Tevar did an excellent job of answering my concerns and relieving any anxiety going into the appointment.
Dr Tevar is a very good listener and is excellent at addressing your concerns. He is very personable and encouraging. It is hard to imagine a better experience.
Dr. Tevar is a wonderful doctor. He cares greatly about his patients.
Dr. Tevar was my surgeon when I donated my kidney to my daughter 2 years ago. Prior to surgery and up to my 2 year post-op check up, he has always taken time to answer any questions I may have and make me feel that I was given the best care possible. Approximately 1 year ago, I was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm and my neurologist consulted with Dr. Tevar to ensure that any surgery or treatment was ok since I was a kidney donor. During my last visit (my 2 year post-op check up), Dr. Tevar not only answered my questions but also my daughter's questions (she was the recipient of my kidney donation). I have the highest regard and respect for UPMC.
Dr Tevar is always such a delight to see. He and Mrs Lander answered all my questions.
He is an excellent doctor. Very nice and explained everything in detail.
Dr. Tevar is an excellent care provider, who is both compassionate and knowledgeable.
While the wait time was excessive, Dr Tevar is "worth the wait". He makes you feel more than "just another patient". Wouldn't want to see anyone else. He ROCKS!
Dr. Tevar is one of the most caring, compassionate and genuine providers I have ever met. He truly cares deeply about each one of his patients and treats them like family.
Fast service and detailed explanations
He is not my typical doctor. He was the translplant doctor, and as a donor i feel that his services are quick, precise and friendly.
This was my first time meeting Dr. Trecar and I found him and his staff to be friendly and very knowledgable.
My care at Starzl has always been exceptional, from the receptionists to the nurses, from my coordinator Tara Nolan to my surgeon Dr. Tevar.
we absolutely love Dr Tevar. He saved my life. I?m so fortunate to have him as a doctor.
My visit was quick, easy and I was satisfied with my appointment.
dr. Tevar is one of a kind..... he saved my dads life and I will forever be greatful. he has always been a professional, great bed side manor and always knowledgeable about my medical history. I wish every dr I've ever seen was like him. he is a definite keeper.... and if I ever won the lottery, I'd give him half!!!
kind and so genuine. He is so attentive and makes you feel valued as a patient.
love the team there
Dr Tevar was excellent in all respects. I've never had a better surgeon.
words can't describe the unbelievable care I received from Dr. Tevar. I would highly recommend he, his staff and UPMC hospital to everyone..
I can not say enough Great things about this entire department (Starzl center) Dr Tevar and Aileen Galitan are absolutely amazing. Never did I feel anxious or confused about anything. I was treated with such respect by each and every person. And to stand back and watch them, they respect each other and constantly work as a team. Being a Kidney donor is a difficult decision and they brought such comfort. not only by providing me with so much information, but i never once felt obligated. It was always my decision and they supported me 100%. Top notch, High class, Compassionate, Supportive, Informative, Caring, Friendly, Understanding, Accommodating, ....... I could go on and on. I will be forever grateful for this entire experience and this amazing Team.
I donated a kidney. Dr. Amit Tevar was my surgeon. This was my last scheduled/planned follow-up visit with him. I have found him to be exceptionally caring on all visits and he always emphasizes that I should feel free to call him with ANY issues for the rest of my life.
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!
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.
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 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.
Both Dr. Tevar and my coordinator guided me through the Living Donor process with confidence and exceptional care.
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!!!
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.
pleasant experi nice at starzl transplant center
Dr Tevar has been very attentive and explained everything clearly ever since the transplant.
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."
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.
Awesome care and Great people! Just wonderful
the team is always nice and helpful. I had a very good experience.
Tevar is by far the most respectful concerned and involved dr. I have ever had the pleasure of seeing

I have felt the care I have received has been excellent.
Always a good experience with Dr. Tevar ! Always well taken care of at all times.
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.

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.
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

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.
