Where Possible, Prevention is Better than Cure
January 17, 2019
Austin Regional Clinic is pleased to announce that Ramla Ali, MD, Pediatrician, has joined the team at ARC Pflugerville. Although a long-time resident of Austin, Dr. Ali grew up in the coastal city of Karachi, Pakistan.
Speaking of why she wanted to become a physician, she says, “I wanted to become a doctor for as long as I can remember. I saw my grandfather, a family physician, touch so many lives in his community with commitment to his patients and his compassion. I was inspired by how hard he worked for the well-being of others.”
Of being a Pediatrician, Dr. Ali says, “I love to see my patients grow from little fragile beings to energetic young adults.” She adds, “My approach is to form a close bond with the entire family in order to provide the best care for their physical and emotional well-being.”
The best part of her job? Dr. Ali says, “Counseling my patients and their parents as they cross various milestones.”
Prevention is Better Than Cure
In her free time, Dr. Ali enjoys cooking, eating out, and socializing. She says, “When I’m not at work I like to cook, bake, and socialize. My husband and I are both foodies at heart and we like to try new places to eat as well as try different dessert recipes. I bake for bake sales and my friends and family.”
“I was really young when my father had his first heart attack. I saw my mother make a transition towards a healthy lifestyle for the whole family. Preventive medicine became a passion for me from a very young age,” recounts Dr. Ali. Now she says her health advice is “Where possible, prevention is better than cure.”
