Terrible visit. Rude office staff and waited almost 45 minutes before taken back to see the doctor where I waited another 30 minutes. I had to ask when I was going to be seen before the doctor arrived and even thenhe didn't know why I was visiting him. Do not recommend and will be finding a new dermatologist.

I'm happy to have found Dr. Ali, especially after less-than-happy visits with other local dermatologists (who shall remain unnamed since their reviews are bad enough already). His office staff was pleasant, the wait time was almost too short(no time for reading and/or stealing office magazines), and there was no pressure or upselling of cosmetic services. Zero. I find that amazing in a dermatologist's office these days. His bedside manner was low-key, and I am delighted to recommend him to anyone!

I am puzzled by the excellent reviews My experience was different I had some form of non-healing area behind the ears and two non-healing areas on the face.Those were frozen successfully but there was no attempt to investigate for additionaltrouble spots The treatment for the ear areas was two prescriptions. No instruction were given on how to use or how long to use I requested a call from him to clarify but that never happened. The treatment is so far ineffective

DR Sayed O Ali was very thorough in his diagnosis and treatment , he specified the availability and price of drugs. I was very impressed with his attitude, I went to other providers with the same issue, but nothing worked. Itwas totally a missed diagnosis, where as Dr Ali was smart enough to diagnose and treat my problem.

I was treated well above and beyond the norm from the moment I walked in the door. I didn't feel rushed in any way and all my questions were answered. There was never a moment where I felt uncomfortable or dissatisfied.I'm very pleased with my experience and plan to continue to use them for my dermatology needs.
