Dr. Dahir always listens to me and gives me plenty of time. This time she asked me more than once if there were any other questions/concerns I had about my health that she could assist with. She is wonderful.

I lost my husband 2 months ago. She listened to the whole story and assured me that my feelings were normal, AND examined me thoroughly and addressed my medical issues. I am grateful for her compassion and excellent medical care.
