June 12, 2019

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.
