I have been going to Dr Ali since 2007, and I feel that since his practice has gotten so big I don't feel as though I have the same doctor patient relationship. Dr Ali has performed 3 surgeries on me and is an amazing doctor. My appointment recently was my 6 month post op and he didn't know why I was there until he looked in my records. My previous surgeries he was more familiar with what was going on with me.
