Sultan Ali Khorasani was a 16th-century Persian physician from Khorasan, Persia.

Sultan-‘Ali usually signed his name as Hakim Sultan-Ali Tabib Khurasani -- that is, doctor Sultan-‘Ali, physician of Khurasan (in Persia).

He practiced medicine for 40 years in Khurasan and in Transoxiana (Central Asia), especially in Samarqand. He began writing his Persian therapeutic manual Dastur al-‘ilaj in the year 1526 at the request of Abu al-Muzaffar Mahmud-Shah Sultan.

Numerous copies of his manual, which must have been quite popular, are preserved today.
