Love Dr. Dahir. She is always very compassionate, and friendly.
Patient | September 20, 2017

Described further treatment options, giving me choices, but suggesting which one would be the best under my circumstances. Described the procedure and possible after effects, plus gave me literature to refer back to.

She was very professional, friendly, and caring.
Patient | September 2, 2017

this provider is attentive and knowledgeable. I am especially thrilled because she saved my badly broken leg. As a Type 1 diabetic, I appreciate this more than I can say.
Patient | August 22, 2017

Dr. Dahir has been treating me for several conditions for many years! I absolutely respect her for not only her medical knowledge, but her concern for me as a fellow human being!! She is a credit to the Vanderbilt health care community!

Patient | August 17, 2017

She is best!! Would never consider anyone else. Just recommended her to friend.
Patient | August 8, 2017

I come all the way from New York to see Dr. Dahir. Her staff - Beth and Sarah are remarkable. Dr. Dahir is extremely knowledgeable about my genetic condition and she is amazingly responsive by the patient portal. She is empathic and generous with her time and knowledge. I have recommended both Dr. Dahir and Vanderbilt Medical Center to friends. Dr. Dahir was recommended to me by the Soft Bones Organization and she is the most knowledgeable person I have met about my condition. My doctors in NY are not knowledgeable about my condition or its treatment so as I said I travel to TN to see Dr. Dahir twice a year or more as needed.
Patient | July 31, 2017

Dr. Dahir is very friendly, pleasant, and competent. I am extremely pleased with her care for my particular health problem.
Patient | July 17, 2017

You should have a NA, since some of your questions are simply not applicable.

Even though she is not my primary care dr. she cares about my fears/medical issues post spinal surgery at Vanderbilt (4 yrs. ago) even contacted an ortho practice to get me in that day for a swollen knee.

Great doctor. She is the best!

If Dr. Dahir was not so good, I wouldn't travel 200 miles to see her.
