She rushes you and doesn’t listen. My first appointment i was coming from a pediatric G.I and I saw Dr. Ali for 3 minutes. Also had a poor experience when I went for my colonoscopy. I was out in the hall for 20 minutes because she kept taking patients in when all she needed to do was explain what she found, the nurses were even upset with her. At my check up visit I was anxious to even go because of my past experience. She told me I was fine and I brought my medical records that I also had faxed over because I had a diagnosis of crohn’s. She said “oh this is a lot” as if I didn’t have them sent over prior to my first appointment. She told me the results were fine and said I don’t know why your having symptoms follow up in a year. I have never felt so pushed aside by a doctor ever. Also, as I was waiting for my appointment the staff was speaking about another patient how they keep calling even when they have answered her questions. I asked for my records and I will not be back.

My experience with Dr Ali and the office staff was not well at all. I was trying to give the office the benefit of the doubt as things kept slipping through the cracks (ie setting up calls with the doctor, then the doctor doesn’t call , it ends up being the nurse practitioner. Also emails sent saying the doctor found some test results and needs to speak with you and no one calls). The last draw for me was my prescription got mixed up twice! Once it was an old prescription that was put in, I called to correct and then the other was a BIG MISTAKE, the doctor didn’t call it in, one of the nurse practitioners did and it was some sort of BI POLAR/ Schizophrenic drug that could of done A LOT OF HARM on my liver! The office seems to often been unorganized and Dr Ali seems to be quick to prescribe. I would not recommend until they slow down and tighten up that staff!!

I saw Dr. Ali on August 13th due to pain in my upper right abdomen and to schedule a colonoscopy. Dr. Ali suggested I have an upper abdominal ultrasound and bloodwork that same day or no later than the next day as she suspected gallstones. I had both tests completed that same day. As of today, August 22nd, and after repeated unreturned phone calls to the office, I have not been able to speak to anyone to get the results of the tests. I personally went to the Imaging center today, picked up my results and made an appointment to see another physician. I cannot totally blame Dr. Ali who may or may not have known about my calls, but this was a total lack of communication. I will not be returning.

Dr Ali is absolutely amazing. Truly compassionate, caring, thorough, and extremely intelligent. She really knows what she’s doing and remains as minimally invasive as she can with treatment, at least in my experience. I’ve seen a lot of doctors, and she is top notch! Highly recommended

First , It’s very difficult to get a appt. Then you bring it to doctors attention & she makes an excuse for her untrained staff on following up & following through. These people should had learned those basic characteristics from their parents. Then to top it off , next appt at out patient surgery center scheduled by the original complaint,hooked up to I v and doctor was at another center . Still have not heard from doctor. Wow !!!!

If you are looking for a passionate, caring doctor than Dr.Ali is the right choice for you.She knows what she is doing, she took care of my mom while my mom was in ICU.She is humble, polite and treats you like family not like a number.She was there for us to answer any questions we had and explained each and everything about my mom's condition.We need doctors like her who are so knowledgeable but also have the best bedside manner.May God bless her for saving my mom.She is an amazing doctor.
