Dr. Ali spent over 40 minutes with me during my visit reviewing my medical history and current medications. He patiently listened to my concerns and took the time to explain in detail answers to my questions, ensuring that I understood each of them. I left my visit feeling heard, understood, and with no unanswered questions.

Doctor Ali is always responsive and caring. He called me during my hospital admission morning and evening as well as stopping in to see me there each day. I am amazed he has time to give all of his patients such wonderful care.
