Dr Ali is highly experienced and cares about his patients. He did cataract surgery on both of my eyes and did an incredible job. I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. I was frightened of the surgery and he allayed all my fears. He has done a superb job with the follow up after surgery. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. His staff is professional and do their best to help with whatever questions I may have.

Dr Ali is amongst the most professional physicians I've encountered. Additionally, under his care I recovered from a rather 'unremarkable' eye infection. I'm a big fan. Brian O'Reilly

Everything about the experience of a visit to Texas Eye Surgeons is pleasant, from they greeting they give when you walk in the door, to the time you walk out. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with older patients who may ask seemingly silly questions (ahem). They explain every procedure before they perform it. Dr. Ali in particular is very thorough in explaining what test results mean, and what treatment is necessary, if any. I'm glad I'm a patient there.
in Rockwall, TX |
Dr. Ali is very kind and considerate, but more importantly he is skilled at what he does and honest about treatment. His staff is also very competent.

My experience with Dr. Ali was very great, nothing bad I could possibly say. He provided me with exceptional service and made me feel comfortable and at ease. Thankful to him my eyes feels perfectly fine now, nothing feels unusual or had any problems. I'd say if you want the right Doctor with excellent service, then I recommend Dr. Ali.

in Lewisville, TX |
Dr. Ali was very thorough in his explanations, did a super job with taking care of my scratched cornea (right eye), was very helpful and friendly, and I would surely recommend him.
in Carrollton, TX |
Dr. Ali performed cataract surgery on both my eyes last year. My surgery was very challenging because I had vision correction surgery (RK) done about 20 years ago. My vision got real bad and I had trouble driving at night even with my contact lenses. Cataract made it worse. I was very scared about the surgery and Dr. Ali reassured me everything will be fine and was very caring. My surgery was very successful and Dr. Ali implanted special lenses and now I can read and see far very clearly.
in Mine Hill, NJ |
Over the top care provided to address an emergency eye condition while on travel. Dr. Ali and his entire staff was professional and courteous, and went above and beyond to squeeze me into their already busy schedule to successfully treat my issue before I caught a flight home the next day. Dr. Ali is so good I would almost consider catching a flight across the nation to get follow up yearly exams! I would give him six stars if able!
in Plano, TX |
Very knowledgable and explains every details in terms you understand. You leave his office educated about your issue and with specific plan on treatment. Took time to listen and answered all questions I had in an easy to understand details. I am in IT and have been seeing eye doctors since I was 4 years old. I was impressed with the technology he has in his office, the best I have seen, it gives you confidence that he will do a thorough examination and will have the right data for diagnosis
in Dallas, TX |
Dr. Ali examine and tests led to a more serious problem that was detected very early. As a result of the early detection of a tumor on my pituitary gland, I was able to have a successful surgery to remove, and treat it.... Thanks
