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.

The best !!! I had the same cardiologist since my youth and he recently retired ...I was worried my new cardiologist ( Dr Ali) would not be as caring and knowledge as my pervious Dr... well turns out Dr Ali was just as great ... I'm so glad I met him and I differently plan on keeping him in my life ...very knowledgeable very caring

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.
