I was seeing another GI doctor and was not getting any good info on my problems, I told my Endocrinologist Dr. Aziz, he recommended Dr. Ali. I have been very nervous for about 2 months because I didn't know what todo....In my visit with Dr. M. Ali he brought In a model and began to explain what I had. He was very thorough and instructed me on what I needed to do, and his plan was very comforting . I feel so relieved that I saw Dr. Ali, I thank God and Dr. Aziz for recommending Him... I look forward to working with his care plan and feeling better.

Dr Ali performed a complete review of medical history and current concerns I had. He immediately set me up with a visit to the ER, contacted the ER staff so they were prepared for my visit and then awaited results ofseveral tests taken - all in the same day. Dr Ali was very personal, concerned and a doctor i would highly recommend. Thank you Dr Ali.!

Dr. Ali is attentive, focused, and gentle in nature. He was not annoyed with my list of questions, nor did he seem intimidated by, or minimize my questions relating to 'research' I obtained from the internet. He genuinely seems to enjoywhat he does and is a good communicator. He seems knowledgeable in his field and confident in his practice. I feel as though our relationship is collaborative, rather than the old school, paternalistic, doctor of days gone by. I would highly recommend him.
