After completing a residency in otolaryngology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2003, Dr. Dahl joined a group practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and unconventionally began working with the New York State Athletic Commission as a ringside doctor for professional boxing. When the group practice dissolved, Dr. Dahl founded the Dahl Otolaryngology Center in January 2007 and quickly became popular with performing artists, rising to become one of the top doctors for the Broadway community, opera singers, screen actors, and major recording artists.
Congruently, Dr. Dahl opened Dahlfull Breastfeeding Center, developing a new paradigm in breastfeeding. To date, she has treated over 23,000 babies and parents.
When the pandemic caused New York City to shut down in March 2020, Linda put her practice on hold. She began appearing on many national news programs, reporting on the medical side of the pandemic. In August 2020, Dr. Dahl began heading Covid Compliance teams in TV productions. To date, she has worked with Warner Brothers, Bad Robot, Apple TV, Epix, CBS, Wiip and Studio Canal. In 2021, Dr. Dahl founded a Covid testing company, Park Avenue Testing, which provides on-site testing and consultation for TV/movie productions, Broadway and major venues.
Dr. Dahl has lectured in myriad settings from the Screen Actors Guild to Actors' Equity, as well as medical conferences and hospitals. She has authored and co-authored articles published in scientific journals. In mainstream media, she has been featured in The New York Times, The New York Post, MSNBC, Medium, The Hollywood Reporter, Fox News and Newsmax. She has also appeared on numerous radio shows and podcasts.
As an author, she has written three books: "Clinician's Guide to Breastfeeding," "Tooth and Nail: The Making of a Female Fight Doctor" and "Better Breastfeeding: A Doctor's Guide to Nursing Without Pain and Frustration."
Dr. Dahl maintains hospital privileges at Weill Cornell Hospital, Northwell Lenox Hill Hospital and Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital.
