Washington, DC |
Smart and caring doctor and friendly staff. We drive from DC to see him. It's worth it. The NP in the chemotherapy area is great too.
in Philadelphia, PA |
What an incredible oncologist. My mother saw Dr. Ali for a second opinion. We took his recommendations back to our hometown oncologist. If only we lived closer to one of his offices. He is absolutely the smartest and most charming oncologist you will ever meet. Great bedside manners and once you get past the busy waiting room, his staff is amazing.
in Silver Spring, MD |
Great heart and mind. Dr. Ali is the complete package. Smart, charming, caring and up to date. He communicated very well and discussed all possible chemotherapy and immune therapy options. He was always available to answer questions. The staff at his office is like our family now.

Such a great experience for my mother who is being treated with cancer in Maryland. Dr. Ali saw her on consultation. The same day made a decision to admit her to the hospital for reach a diagnosis in a more timely manner. Dr. Ali's partner saw her in the hospital and was in constant communication with Dr. Ali. Within a week, she was out of the hospital after completing surgery. The whole team of doctors and nurses were amazing. We all would highly recommend this great oncologist!
in Kensington, MD |
Great team of doctors. His assigned nurse answers calls the same day and directs us to the right person if needed. I had the pleasure of meeting two of his other colleagues when I had to be in the hospital since they all rotate hospital rounds at different hospitals. First I thought it was just Dr. Ali who was the best, but now I know its the whole office that makes him great. I would recommend anyone to see him. Thanks to him I hope to have many years ahead of me. I am thankful to his team.

This office is the place you need to bring your family member if you hear the unfortunate news that they have cancer. When one hears this word cancer, you need a doctor who is going to explain things to you. Someone who is available to answer your questions. Someone who has a nurse who is easy to get in touch with. Dr. Ali's office fits those categories. He is always smiling and makes you feel comfortable. And he could not do it without his staff in his office. I am lucky that he is my doctor.
in Silver Spring, MD |
Dr. Ali has excellent bedside manners. When I had first saw him, he put me at ease the minute he walked in. I was very anxious seeing him, but will thoroughness, his followup calls, and the quickness in making the diagnosis is why I am here today. He has been my doctor for over a year and I am glad I met him. He and his staff are my family. I would recommend him to anyone seeking an oncologist or blood specialist wholeheartedly. I am truly blessed that my NP sent me to him. God Bless him always.
in Bethesda, MD |
My husband went to Dr. Ali to be treated for lung cancer. Dr. Ali was always in a hurry, very seldom returned calls and when he did it was usually days after the initial call. When my husband was in the hospital dying of his disease Dr. Ali did not stop in to see him until AFTER he died. I am so sorry that we ever saw Dr. Ali. I would NEVER recommend to anyone. His only interest is self promotion and the almighty dollar, not caring for his patients.
in Laurel, MD |
Able to get in quickly with the help of my general doctor and already completed the biopsy and scans in a week. Very efficient office and Dr. Ali did a great job in explaining the process leaving me no surprises.
in Washington, DC |
Great staff. Warm atmosphere. Dr. Ali was very accommodating of my request for an urgent consult. He shows great knowledge in what he does. I would recommend anyone needing cancer care to his office.
