Dr. Ali seems perfectly competent and methodical although not very helpful when it comes to complicated issues. My biggest problem was with his office staff. His receptionist was shockingly rude and threatened to deny me my appointment after I arrived simply because she didn't understand the coverage of my two insurance policies. I had just called and confirmed my coverage, and I also had another insurance policy and could have paid for the visit myself. Her vindictiveness was unwarranted.

This is a kind and very methodical physician. During a recent hospitalization he was a loyal and fearless advocate for me. What more can you ask for ? I was ref'd to him by a physician I have absolute admiration and faith in. He took the time to explain my complicated problem so that I could grasp and understand it there by lessening my fears and apprehension.
