Do not trust Dr. Syed A Ali at all. Do your self & your family a favor, STAY AWAY from him and find your self someone else.

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?
