Misdiagnosed my daughter
My daughter has been treated for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis for four years and has been on various biologics and methotrexate injections. I am not convinced Dr. El-Dahr has any idea how to diagnose JIA. My daughter had classic polyarticular JIA with positive rheumatoid factor, and Dr. El-Dahr completely dismissed her labs and symptoms and sent us on our way with no follow up. In hindsight, it is pretty mind-blowing how dismissive she was. Considering how few resources are available in Louisiana as far as pediatric rheumatology, it was flat out terrible treatment. We had to wait a very long time to get in with the "real" pediatric rheumatologist who quickly made the correct diagnosis. Dr. El-Dahr is an allergist/immunologist, and that is what she should stick to treating and diagnosing.

Dr. El Dahr is a wonderful doctor. She is professional, knowledgeable, and caring. She explained my daughter's condition in terms that we both could understand. She is thorough. I would definitely recommend her! (Her nurse is great too!)

Dr. El-Dahr is extremely curt and rude and unhelpful. Visiting her is a misery and a complete waste of money. She has an inflated high opinion of herself and little to no compassion for her patients. She represents the worst of what a doctor could/should be.
