Dr Ali was very profession and by the book. The only downside, she was running late and decided to cut my appointment short which was a little frustrating because I didn't get to cover everything. She is clearly very knowledgeable but she didn't share much to explain the condition. It was more of an action plan without a reason.

I chose to go back to Dr Ali and pay myself as my insurance did not cover. This is because Dr Ali is not only a great professional in her area, but she is also genuinely caring, empathic and displays high integrity - I can be sure that I won't have to pay for unnecessary treatment or procedure, only for what is absolutely necessary. And most importantly, the treatment she prescribed both times worked perfectly well! The best private specialist I have encountered so far, highly recommend.

Dr Ali received me on time She was very welcoming and after asking me few general questions related to my age etc she asked me to describe what I was concerned with. She listened very carefully. She examined me in a very thorough and accurate manner. She was very reassuring and she told me that there will be a cure for me. She explained the cure at length and she took a lot of time to make sure that what she prescribed was clear to me and well understood. She took great interest in my personal interests and professional career. She was very personal with me and empathic. I definitely would recommend her
