UPMC is the best Hospital I've ever been in I would rate them number 1 of any or all hospitals ever been in and that includes John Hopkins in Baltimore Pa.

I trusted him with my life and would do it again!

Dr Hughs is an excellent doctor and surgeon ab=nd I am very blessed to have as my provider. As well as Doctor Tevar and Transplant Coordinators both pre and post transplant. UPMC is the finest hospital I have ever dealt with.

My appointment is for follow up for my double transplant and I love the transplant team. I like how they spend however long it takes to go over any concerns I may have. We go over the meds every visit as well as lab results. They also go over how my appointment scheduled in the future will be spaced further apart due to my progress. I like knowing that if needed the team is only a phone call away and I will get answers as soon as possible. After all my surgery was only on January 3, 2017 and have been going to clinic for appointments since after my first 7 West appointment.
