    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.
