Dr. Dahir is an absolutely wonderful physician! My husband and I both see her for different health issues and she is kind, thorough, thoughtful, highly professional and tops in her field. I feel totally confident that she is the best there is! We always enjoy seeing Dr. Dahir and know that she has our best health interest at the forefront each time we see her. It is always good to see her as a person and physician and to know that she is in charge of this part of our healthcare!

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.
Patient | July 10, 2017

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.
Patient | June 27, 2017

Great doctor. She is the best!
Patient | June 22, 2017

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