Dr Ali is amazing! He responded on a Sunday to my online inquiry, and was able to get me in quickly for a SGB injection. I actually enjoyed my appointment! He is warm and welcoming, explains everything thoroughly, and generously shares information. I can't recommend him highly enough!

I am sure lots of folks are nervous. I was! But the minute I talked to Dr. Ali, my mind was at ease. He is REALLY at the top of his game. AND, he has an amazing warmth about him. Very rare to find a doctor of this caliber with such a compassionate bedside manner. He truly wants his patients to get better. . My chronic pain has improved and my mood has really improved. I am forever grateful for the care I receieved

I had been suffering from depression and anxiety for a decade. My SSRI’s didn’t seem to be all that effective and I was struggling to heal and recover without much success. Finding Dr. Ali has been a game changer - I received the Stellate Ganglion Block and each day I am feeling better, finally able to be moving forward and letting go of trauma and despair. The Stellate Ganglion Block has contributed to my well being in such an abundant way. Dr. Ali is a great guy and I really like his kind approach and availability in answering all my concerns and questions. I am very grateful. I wish Dr. Ali and all his patients continued indomitable spirit, conspicuous gallantry and undaunted bravery on their road to recovery and good health. Lynda Peterson Norwood Park

Where do I begin!? Finding Dr. Ali and the array of services that his clinic provides has been a game changer. Being a fitness enhusiast over the years I was in search for wellness treatments to help my body recover quickly during high intensity training. Over the past 2-3 months I have been a regular with IV therapy which has really excelled and transformed my training regime. What keeps me coming back to Dr. Ali is his professionalism and his genuine care to listen and really breakdown the elementary benefits to the treatments. I highly recommend reaching out to Dr. Ali and his clinic to address your wellness needs!!

I've had the best experience with Dr Ali, from initial contact through to a series of Ketamine IV Infusions. Dr Ali made me fee very comfortable in a new surrounding, he explained very thoroughly what he would be doing as well as while he was giving the infusion. He was also super attentive during the infusion, His bedside manner is perfect for a nervous patient. He also followed up after the procedure to see how I was doing. I'm very happy to have found a local Ketamine Dr and will be returning to him again when I'm in Chicago. Thanks Dr Ali!

I am a 72 year old woman who has lived with severe PTSD symptoms for over 60 years. The cause of these symptoms is so horrific that I don't even share it with my family. After watching the segment about Stellate Ganglion Blocks (SGB) on the "60 Minutes" TV program from 2019, I was referred to Dr. Syed Ali. I had two Stellate Ganglion Blocks last month. The profoundly positive changes and relief was immediate and noticed by family and friends immediately. I now live life with a "calm" that I didn't know existed. Before the SGB, I was constantly living in "emergency fight/flight/freeze" mode - that has all changed. Dr. Syed Ali treated me with the gentle manner required when helping trauma survivors. His office, staff, and caring manner created the "safe space" I needed to get the most out of the treatment. I traveled from out of state for this appointment and it was well worth it. Dr. Ali is much more than a brilliant physician - he's a loving human. My results are phenomenal - I couldn't recommend him more highly. His follow- through is exceptional.

Dr Ali is very welcoming. I’ve been to his space in the suburbs and the city. The west loop location is more convenient for me — it’s a lovely space. Very comfortable and clean. I am safe and in the best of care with Dr Syed Ali. I highly recommend.

Dr Ali is very educated and talented at what he does! I was skeptical to go forward with the treatment, but I can honestly say that I don’t feel like there is a constant storm cloud weighing down on me anymore. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for 7 years and I can confidently say I have never felt better in my life.
