He is not a patient man, avoid this doctor at all costs. He failed to treat me properly and did not listen to the symptoms I was having. He does not care about you.

I saw Dr. Ali recently. My impression was quite well. He knew his stuff. He noticed my meds were poorly managed, and not helping me at all. He was patient and truly cared about my condition. I quote him, " I am not here to please you. I am here to help you". Staff was pretty nice too.

I highly commend Dr. Ali's professionalism, empathy and wisdom. In the management of my deep depression during 2016, he was understanding and respectful of my illness. His counsel and medications were extremely helpful, and followups with him were easily arranged with his friendly receptionist. I liked and trusted him, and I found him as fine and caring a physician as any I have met. He is a good person and an excellent psychiatrist. You can have confidence in him.

Dr. Ali asks the same questions each visit. He does not listen if I am having a problem. His answer is to throw a different medication at me without any explanation. Dr. Ali processes patients through as if we were on a conveyor belt. There is no warmth or caring.

Dr. Ali is the best psychiatrist in the world. He saved my life when I was in full on psychosis and couldn't function or tell the difference between reality and the thoughts in my head. He gave me the proper medication and kept helping me for 5 years. Unfortunately, he loses his temper and I am forced to no longer see him anymore. I simply cannot deal with his rage whenever he is having a bad day and interrupts me to the point that all I end up doing is starting a sentence and stopping midway th

Dr. Ali has been my physchiatrist for 5 years and I could not ask for a better doctor. He listens to me and my issues and gives me the best advice. Obviously, since I've been with him for 5 years. I would recommend Dr. Ali to anyone who is seeking help. No doubt! He is amazing in my book.

Dr. Ali was rude and unprofessional. I am still shocked by the horrible treatment and lack of concern I received from his and his staff. It's not easy to seek help for a mental health problem, and this doctor only makes it even more difficult. Do not visit this doctor.
