Dr. Dahir always listens to what I have to say during appointments. I would recommend anyone in my family to see her. I have a rare condition, in which I have done lots of research, and Dr. Dahir appreciates that. I am happy to have her as my endocrinologist.

Patient | June 8, 2016

I have never been to a hospital like Vanderbilt and have nothing but praises for Dr. Dahir. She was very interested in understanding my situation, took several measures to gather information before I arrived and spent the time necessary to go over my situation and explain all options. I feel grateful to have been referred to her and look forward to working with her in the future.
Patient | June 1, 2016

Dr. Dahir is an outstanding physician. I have seen many different care providers affiliated with Vanderbilt through the years, and she is among the very best. I see her for my osteoporosis, which has proven very difficult to treat. She is extremely knowledgeable and, when planning treatment for my condition, considers all different aspects of contributing factors and past treatment. Since I began seeing her I have experienced significant regeneration in my bone density. I would not be as healthy as I am today if not for Kathryn Dahir.
Patient | June 1, 2016

Listened to overall health concerns, not just her area of practice.
Patient | May 31, 2016

I couldn't ask for a better doctor. He is so nice & caring which relaxes you when there are things that are bothering you. She takes her time & truly listens.
Patient | May 31, 2016

This was my first visit with Dr. Da hit and my husband were extremely please with her. we left feeling encouraged and that we had found the doctor that would get to the source of my condition and would start a plan for improvement.
Patient | May 30, 2016

Dr. Dahir is an exceptional physician. I hope VUMC will work to retain her on the VUMC team
Patient | May 30, 2016

Dr. Dahir is outstanding, she's always friendly and listens intently to my questions.
Patient | May 29, 2016

One of two Dr. I would wait to see without being upset about wait time. Dr. Dahir is a great Dr. and I wish all Dr. were cut from the same cloth. She is exceptional Dr. & person!
