While I appreciate Dr. Hariharan and (Brad Giles) knowledgeable insights, I have been disappointed lately with UPMC. I only come once a year for a transplant checkup and over the past several years, I have seen a different doctor and had my case coordinator changed repeatedly. I did not even know that Brad was my coordinator - it was Stacy Acevido for several years. She was not available at my appointment last year. It costs approximately $300 for me to visit for this checkup since I travel a distance. It seems that with the change in staff, this might be more manageable with a Pinnacle transplant team in Harrisburg since they are also associated with UPMC.

Dr Hari. and all of the transplant team are the best. i have had best care during and after my transplant Dr. Hari was able to find a treatment for this unusual complication. I truly am Blest to hav Dr Hari, Dr. P, Dr. Tevar, Gina Doyle, staff of 11n, 11s, 7 w and the rest of the team are great! I have worked in surgery for 36 years and I know what good care and UPMC is the best.

dr showed a 'can do' attitude and was proactive in getting a treatment plan based on all the data from tests and labs andprocedures. i felt confident in his approach for helping me to find the best treatment plan when all others havent tried hard enough
