It was that time of year again - the dreaded colonoscopy. I have been a patient of Dr. Ali for several years and he is the only doctor I will consider. Summarizing only some of his skills: he is consistently professional, knowledgeable, attentive, and courteous. He stays well informed in his practice area. I have not met a doctor finer than Dr. Ali. And he has an outstanding and attentive staff.

Dr. Ali is what you hope every doctor is like. I was in lots of distress having seen so many doctors and Dr. Ali patiently listened, went through my symptoms, provided explanations for probable causes and eliminations, and made me feel like a patient that was receiving actual proper care! Can’t recommend him enough.

Dr Ali is very deliberative and thoughtful. Excellent manner answering questions and obviously very informed. I asked him about a recent study I read in the NYT and he was aware of the issues and was not down putting when I raised them. His confidence comes across as a calming presence — nothing boastful about his leadership style in the surgery!

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.

Retired physician – Jun 29, 2019
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.

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.
