“Dr Ali was very welcoming and knowledgeable during my consultation with him today. He listened to my story, was engaged whilst doing so and prompted for further information politely when he deemed necessary. I have left with the answers and advice needed to manage my issue (hopefully independently) going forward but also have contact details should I need to clarify anything. Very glad I visited Dr Ali at the Spire. “
