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.
