Patient Reviews (5)
Dr Ali is my primary physician. In the 9 plus years as his patient, he walks into the exam-room with a smile saying "Hello young lady.?" He takes time to discuss my medical issues and actually Listens! Although he is a busy, it isn't apparent when with his patients. Needless tests are never ordered however when annual tests are recommended,he lets you know these are priority. Having trust in doctors isn't easy for me except for Dr Ali. His P.. A. is wonderful, nurses are staff exceptional.

He always walked in the room with the wrong info. Even after the nurse wrote all of my updates down since i had been there last. He had no idea what was going on with me. The 3rd time this happened I spoke up, I had already waited an hour and a half to see him. He was sarcastic with his questions as soon as I started explaining he had the wrong info. He got mad and said he didn't want to see me again. The nurse practitioner apologized to me as soon as he left the room. Your just a number to him

Dr Ali was my Dr for many years. I moved to CA last year. I knew my Dr was a very good Dr and I appreciated him very much. I didn't realize what a rare find I had in Dr Ali until I had to find another. He goes above and beyond what his job is. He actually cares about his patients. He takes time to make sure you completely understand what is going on with your health. He listens. He will work with you to find what you are comfortable with in your own care. His staff are very friendly and caring.

Horrible bedside manner. Always a crazy long wait time. Took him almost a year to diagnose an illness that almost killed me bc he thought it was all in my head. This is a prime example of a dr that cares about the money and doesn't care at all about his patients. Terrible doctor.
