Please spare yourself and your family the suffering that being a patient of Dr Ali brings. Dr Ali has poor communication skills and lacks empathy and medical knowledge. Not only did he prevent my father from seeing a specialist at Washington Hospital in Fremont, the medicines prescribed caused a life threatening reaction that lead to a second emergency room visit and hospital stay. Thank God my father did not die, it was not for want of Dr Ali trying. When we asking for help, he used obscenities

Dr Ali is inattentive, rude, disrespectful and lacks professionalism. In addition , he appeared to lack basic medical knowledge that anyone can access over the internet. I took my mother to see him and he was so rough with her delicate bones, she's 78 with osteoporosis, I thought he was going to break her wrist! She was in such pain, he didn't listen to her, openly mocked her and we left the office feeling unheard, and humiliated. Find a compassionate doctor, avoid this man at all costs.
