Unhappy Is this plumbing set up correct?

Dishwasher was having trouble draining so had a technician come out and look at this and he mentioned he wasn't a certified plumber but that the set up looked pretty funky and the dishwasher would struggle pushing water out through all of the loops/twists/turns in my current set up. Any advice would help, thanks!

You don't need the second P-Trap. Just use a tail piece with a dishwasher connection on the sink P-trap.

Maybe it's the camera angle but where does the sink drain connect to the main drain?

I think there is a Tee behind that mess.

Yes.... there is a chrome tee there that cannot be used like that.
Also.... the dishwasher wouldn't drain too well going uphill like that.

Who installed that mess? It's not even close to being right.
