The reason for the wait time is that there are other staff who need to perform various tests Dr Ali will beef in order to thoroughly evaluate your sprain situation. I didn't mind that at all.

I like the staff very much but 2 and a half hours is much too long of a wait time. They need to schedule appointments closer to the time the doctor can see patients.

Dr. Ali is excellent. He is down to earth and easy to work with versus other MDs I have worked with in the past. My only issues are the wait and the schedule times. The wait is rather long and thefirst appointment and last appointment of the day are late and too early in the afternoon.

The exam was throrough. I had some minor eye problems but major eye background. I feel reassured - it had been a while since I'd seen an opthamologist or an optometrist. I'm good with the care. I am not good withthe wait. There was even another wait after they put dilation drops in - that went about 15 minutes past the 15 minutes they estimated.

I am very happy and comfortable with Dr Abdulfatah Ali, feel confident in his skill and ability to do the surgery etc, probably mainly due to his manner when I am there as much as anything along with office staff andthose helping with the eye tests etc. . Worried when I moved here about missing my last eye doctor and there was no need! Would recommend him to anyone!

A highly professional doctor's office. Doctor Ali and his entire staff were extremely professional and each step of my exam was performed by a skilled staff member. I had less than 15 minutes of wait time. However, When my exam startedeach member took their time, always told me what they were doing and asks if I had any questions. My pre-op appointment was handled by Debbie and she was excellent. When I left the office I was completely informed on my up coming surgeries. I would recommend Dr. Ali and his staff to anyone needing complete and professional eye care.

It was my initial visit, so there was paper work to be filled out. After a brief wait about the time to check 2 emails, an assistant did some diagnostic workup and in depth history taking. Then Dr. Ali came inand did some further examination. He was courteous and explained all matters, repeating as necessary as I have some hearing loss. We were able to plan a course of action that will take place over the next several months to resolve complex situations regarding both eyes and my general health.
