Patient, kind, couldn't be more knowledgeable. Appropriately ordered studies not done by other physicians. Willing to discuss alternatives, risks and benefits. A true physician, not just a technologist.

I recently had an unsedated colonoscopy with Dr. Ali and the experience was as pleasant as a colonoscopy can be. Dr. Ali discussed my preference for the unsedated procedure with me, explained the benefits of sedation, and then agreed to the unsedated colonoscopy when I expressed that I still preferred to be awake for the procedure. The colonoscopy itself went very smoothly. He educated me as the procedure was in process and his deft technique resulted in a very tolerable event. I won't schedule them for fun, but I'd definitely go back to Dr. Ali for another unsedated colonoscopy in the future if/when I need one.

Evaluation for colonoscopy. Dr. Ali was thorough and polite. I will continue seeing him as required and would recommend him to prospective patients.

Dr. Ali takes time to explain carefully what is going on, and he listens. He is clearly committed to an unusual extent to make sure care of his patients is on track. In the last couple weeks he has called me twice in the evening, first, on a Sunday, to make sure that I was cleared and OK for procedures the next day, and second, to give me timely reports on biopsy results. Also, he gave me RX for a med I was buying OTC, to save me money.

Dr. Ali is the rare combination of skill, knowledge, experience and compassion. From the moment I first met him, I felt relaxed and in the best possible hands. This isn’t an easy way to feel when you realize you are facing a colonoscopy, a procedure that makes most of us more than a little anxious. Now, having just had the procedure, I can attest that my quickly positive reaction to him was totally confirmed. I highly recommend Dr. Ali.

Dr. Ali is a very caring, patient and excellent gastroenterology. He meets with you after your procedure and performs a phone follow-up after a few days to ensure everything is well. He is thorough in his work and his gentle too. I highly recommend him for any digestive/esophagus issues you may have.

I have been going to Dr. Ali for over 10 years. He has always been very patient, kind, informative, and very knowledgeable when speaking with me as a patient. He takes whatever time is necessary to explain everything to me in great detail and always uses layman’s terms so that I fully understand what he is saying. He is a very thorough and competent physician. I highly recommend him if you are looking for an excellent gastroenterologist.

This was my first doctor's visit in the US after 10 years overseas where i've had emergency surgeries that have developed chronic and serious aftereffects. Dr. Ali exceeded all my expectations (being the US I expected a brusque and quick appointment.) Dr. Ali was incredibly thorough on recording my complex medical background and answered all my questions. I learned much about my medical situation and what can be done for it. He never rushed me and he was incredibly thorough, concerned and kind.

As a longtime patient of Dr. Ali I followed him to his new practice at Capital Digestive Care in Chevy Chase. Dr. Ali is genuinely interested in my welfare and takes the time to listen to my concerns, educate me about personal health matters, and communicate near- and longer-term priorities. Dr. Ali is an excellent caregiver and health manager. I am glad to know him.

Dr. Ali was extremely knowledgeable, patient and not at all condescending. He listened to all that was going on with me unlike the other doctor I had seen there who was extremely rude. I'm glad I didn't move to another practice just because of one bad experience.

I became a patient of Dr. Ali’s in 2018 at GWU. The first time I met him, I knew right away that he was very professional and practiced with the highest of integrity. He keeps abreast of the latest studies and literature in gastroenterology, and he is an excellent communicator and listener. He is very patient when patients are describing symptoms, and he addresses the problem or problems in a straightforward manner that the patient can understand.

I have been a patient with Dr. Ali for more than six years, and he has won my trust. Rather than rush to do this and that invasive procedure, he considers and explains the benefits against the risks, in light of symptoms and medical history, to help me make a decision that makes the most sense. He is patient and clear – and takes the time to answer all of my questions. He is also very responsive by phone and email, which helped me several times make better decisions between appointments.

I’ve known Dr Ali more than 10 years and I would not trade him for anyone. He is old fashioned in that he sits down and talks with you. I have an unusual condition that makes me anxious. Thankfully, long ago he gently urged me to do yoga and meditate. He can remember the tiniest details of my case. I have stuck with Dr Ali from private practice into a university hospital setting and back. I treasure his expertise. He sets the standard for the highest level of care.
