Taking care of children has always been Dr. Ali’s favorite thing to do. She really enjoys every minute she spends with her patients and their families. Dr. Ali believes that as a pediatrician, she has the responsibility to set kids up for success and, in turn, has a significant impact on families. But Dr. Ali thinks the most rewarding thing about pediatrics is just working with kids and seeing them grow up healthy. She knows building relationships is both essential and rewarding for both the provider and the patients.
Dr. Ali grew up in the Kurdistan region of Iraq before moving to the United States. She considers southwestern Virginia her home. She enjoys the many outdoor experiences, the beautiful mountains and the friendly people.
