Dr. Ali cares about me. She cares about my health. She is very compassionate, empathetic, and honest. I randomly found her in a google search and I'm so glad I did. I owe Dr. Ali a great deal of gratitude. I was also very impressed with her current, innovative, practices to treating mental health. The staff is also very friendly and easy to work with. She is the BEST!

I absolutely love Dr. Ali! She is passionate, intelligent and highly skilled. I cannot even begin to explain all that she's done to help me not only manage my condition, but overall well-being. There are times when she has responded to me during off hours and spent well over my allotted time to ensure I left in good spirits. She's even advocated for me over medical services I am entitled to but did not know how to go about receiving them. No idea where I'd be w/o her - hope never to find out.

I commend their office for always making sure I am using my medicines as prescribed. I had problems with prescription drug abuse for a long time and everyone else only talked to me for 1 minute and handed over a script to me. Dr. Ali held me accountable for my sobriety. She cared enough to listen to me and helped me identify my dependence on xanax. She is the first doctor who actually helped me reduce the total number of meds I was taking. I wish more doctors were responsible like her.

Absolutely awful experience. I am 100% sure the majority of these reviews are fake . She is VERY combative - imsulting and basically treats you like crap if you do not agree with her.

She treated my 17 years old most stubborn kid with a lot of patience and passion. She didn't hesitate to confront him when he showed his sense of entitlement and tried to lie on her face. She remained very calm yet dedicated to his complete recovery. I felt a mother to mother connection with her. Very personable.

I really liked that I didn't have to talk to multiple people regarding my difficult and personal situation. Dr. Ali took her time to completely understand reasons for my situation and prescribed a medication that has already changed my life. She was reachable even outside of appointment for quick questions. Very knowledgeable and highly recommended!!!

If you are serious about your treatment, Dr. Ali is the doc for you. She is a very straight forward and honest person. She is one of best addiction psychiatrists in whole DFW area. I felt like I was talking to a real person and not a robot. She is very professional and yet very personable at the same time. I am an introvert but i felt very comfortable talking to her about the most difficult experiences of my life. She will hold you accountable for your sobriety and treatment. But if you are a dr

I found Dr. Ali when I lost all hope in life & she gave me hope. I realized for the first time, just my medications were not enough to get better. I needed willpower and my will to live came back when she gave me hope.

She was nice but treated me as if I was a drug addict telling me that I would be getting random drug tests,etc. I have been on the same low dosage of Prozac for a long time. Seemed strange. I went once. The front desk is also extremely rude and they send you a ridiculous amount of appointment reminders.
