Dr Ali always take the time to listen and answer my questions. I needed some help and he was able to provide the resources that I need to get the help.

This was the first time I had a bad experience with this provider. my recent experiences with all UPMC providers has been horrible. I felt this provider didn't listen, I felt shamed at times and I felt like he wasn't addressing the reason I was there but trying to redirect back to other issues. I became emotional and left the office in tears. I'm not sure if he was having a bad day or since my last contact with him, which was several years now, he has changed. My care in Erie recently has been so bad that I have sought treatment at Cleveland Clinic which lead to a diagnosis that lead me to see this provider again.

Dr Ali is a consummate professional! Extremely knowledgeable, very pleasant and concerned for me and my health. He was so comfortable to talk to, as though I'd been his patient for years instead of the first visit! If all doctors were like him, our health care system would be more beneficial for all! Excellent physician who actually cares!!!!!!!!

Was not sure what to expect as I have not had a great experience with providers in Chautauqua County - was a bit reluctant to go to the appointment, but I am very glad I did. I felt as if Dr Ali was sincerely attempting to assist me - I am grateful for his time and patience.
