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
