I appreciated the amount of time the provider spent with me and he made sure all my questions were answered. Before I left the office he came up with an agreeable plan of action for me to follow which made me feel better about the next steps to take.

Dr Ali is the best Dr I ever had. He is caring

March 01, 2018

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.
