New Neurologist Opens Practice in Wellsville and Hornell

Brings Neurology Specialty to Southern Tier

March 01, 2002

The Southern Tier gains a specialist in neurology when Dr. Syed T. Ali begins caring for pediatric and adult patients at Strong Health Medical Facilities in Wellsville and Hornell beginning March 4. On the medical staff of Jones Memorial, St. James Mercy and Strong Memorial hospitals, Dr. Ali also has a faculty appointment at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Dr. Ali comes from the Boston, Massachusetts area where he practiced neurology for the past five years. Previous to that, he was awarded a series of prestigious fellowships including a research fellowship in Neurophysiology Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, an EMG and Neuromuscular fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA), and a clinical and research fellowship in EEG, Epilepsy, EPs and Sleep Studies at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (New York). Dr. Ali also was chief resident in Adult Neurology at Montafiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine (New York).

"We are very fortunate to have someone of Dr. Ali's caliber join our system. For the past several years, our patients have needed to travel out of the community for neurology care," Ann Gilpin, CEO, Jones Memorial Hospital, said. "Now, Dr. Ali will be able to see and treat patients right in our own backyard. We are thrilled to be able to offer this specialized service to Southern Tier residents."

Gilpin added that Dr. Ali's appointment was made possible through the collaborative efforts of Jones Memorial, St. James Mercy, and Strong Health.

Dr. Ali will reside in Alfred, New York.
