I had a really positive experience with Dr. Ali - I needed a new psychiatrist after switching insurance, and Dr. Ali had great reviews on ZocDoc. When I arrived he personally greeted me and I was seen right away. He went through my medical history with me and asked lots of background questions. I found him very professional, attentive, and helpful - just what I needed!

He doesn't listen to me. He talks to me condescendingly. He yells at me. He refuses to listen to any input from my therapist. He doesn't explain why medications are prescribed or why the dosages are changed. He tried to force his religion on me. He is completely disrespectful in every way. Unless you have literally no other choice, don't go to him. Hannibal Lecter would be a better psychiatrist than him.

I've been a patient for about 2 years now and I've been extremely happy and satisfied with the care I've received. Doctor Ali and his wife are very accommodating and willing to help me whenever I need. I highly recommend Doctor Ali to friends and family!!!

He was very rude and discourteouss. He don't need to be in this field with this poor behavior issues at the end he needs therapy. I wasted time with this visted and if his culture restricts him from being professional towards different cultures he should not be in this feild at all. I will tell anyone don't waste your time with this nut! When he call you he says Come on no respect just rude and ignorant!

I was really surprised of how rude the doctor is. My sister had an appointment with him, he talked to us like we were making him work! I decided to try another doctor and called the office to cancel the appointment. When I called , I am sure he picked up the phone and after asking her last name did not say anything, just hang up on me. I did not understand if he canceled the appointment , so I called back,he yelled me. What kind of psychological help this man can provide by yelling at patients?
