Dr. McAllister saved me from years of poor care by bad doc in North Haven.
He is the most understanding, helpful doctor I have ever met ..the best
Excellent service - completely warm and inviting atmosphere, clean, professional and I left understanding my condition and feeling hopeful. Completely different than any other medical doctor experience I have ever had in my 44 years - 12 of which I have had a neurological condition. Highly recommend!
A physician myself, I admire Dr. McAllister––he practices medicine/neurology with a sense of compassion respect for his patient. He is always up to date in the field yet gives you time to talk never forgets that he's treating a person not a "case."
I love the ability to email Dr. M at anytime and know I will get a reply. This is a doctor who listens to you and offers helpful advice and counsel.
Always a great visit and Dr. McAllister is the best example of a caring doctor!
After many years seeing other neurologists I found Dr. McAllister he was the only one to find out what exactly was my condition and after a few years was able to prescribe the medication that has helped me. Even though it is a distance for me to travel.
The office atmosphere is relaxed and calm. Dr. McAllister has a great bedside manner and he makes you feel as if you are the only patient that matters. I would recommend him, and have, to friends.

Had to share what my 12 year old son said today after his visit to see Dr. McAllister: Just had to share what Ben said to me on the way home after the visit today. "WOW. JUST WOW! That place is awesome. Did you see they have a spa room. A acupuncture room. A food room. It was so nice in there. The people were so funny. You know, I think I might study Neurology just so I could work there some day!!!" Thanks Dr M & Caryn for a great experience for him. Wish all doctor visits were that positive.
My experience with Dr. McAlister has been a bonding for over ten years he has been the most considerate and has gone above with helping me not only with my treatments he has called me to help me even when away from his office I truly cannot describe his kindness and genuine compassion.

World class expertise. Warm caring doctor.
I have been a patient of Dr. McAllister for 5 years but this was the first visit to his new office. I find him very easy to talk to . He listens to what I have to say. By the choices he has made in medication for me my condition has improved.
It was a pleasure to be there. Everyone was so friendly. I have been going to Dr. McAllister since 2008. He has always been friendly and took whatever time you needed but he was so relaxed and we really talked. He's so positive love the man.
Dr. McAllister and his staff are extending every effort to make his patients feel well cared for and comfortable in his new office. I have been his patient for a long time. He is an exceptional doctor & a leader in his field.
attentive, informed, effective.
Dr. McCallister is outstanding. For several years I had migraines on a near daily basis. Last month, I had none. Since he has been my neurologist, my quality of life has vastly improved.
he is the best!
This Doctor changed my life. He was the first neurologist out of 4 and in a period of 9 years to not only figure out what was going on, but to put me at ease and suggest a treatment that reduced my chronic migraines by 75%! He is also very kind and truly interested in his patients as individuals.
Dr. McAllister spent a long time listening to my medical problems, explained what course of action he recommended and impressed me as being very knowledgeable.
I have been a patient of Dr. McCallister's for over a year and after my first visit at his new office I am beyond pleased. In the new office he actually has 'time' to sit with you and discuss your migraine history/concerns in a beautiful calming space. A
First of all the Stamford office is beautiful. Reminds me of a trendy Manhattan hotel lobby! When I got there I was immediately greeted and offered coffee and water. The woman at the front desk was sooo friendly I felt very much at ease. Then I had my appointment with Dr. McAllister. He's smart, and caring but mainly just really ... nice. It felt easy talking to him about complicated, difficult stuff, and his ideas and plan were different than any doctor I've ever been to. I just saw him a few days ago but already I feel on now on the right path. Very happy I went!
I have been with Dr. McAllister for many years and would highly recommend him and his practice. He is one of a few doctors who truly gets to know his patients, takes time to discuss issues and resolutions and works with you until you are feeling better.
Yesterday, I visited Dr. McAllistair. He diagnosis was lingual dysphonia. He gave me shot of xeomin under my chin, and it didn't hurt at all. I trust Dr. McAllistair!!
I'm a nurse and patient. Dealt with many physicians. Dr. McAllister is easy to talk to. Thoroughly answers all questions. Refreshing to receive personal professional attention versus the hurried way other medical offices operate. You won't be disappointed
Excellent all around. Highly recommended.
Today was my first visit at Dr. McAllister's new location, New England Institute for Neurology and Headache. I have been under his care since 2011. He is very easy to talk to, he listens, truly cares, & above all I trust I am in the best hands.
After seeking help with chronic migraines, I ended up on a 13 year journey with Dr. McAllister, who guided me through dealing with and treating multiple neurological issues. Eventually, Dr. McAllister was instrumental in diagnosing my incredibly rare autoimmune condition. Not only was his medical expertise incredible, the human support I rcvd gave me the strength to handle all that I went through. I am forever grateful to have stumbled upon not only one of the best doctors, but the finest human beings I have ever had the privilege of knowing.
I have been with Dr.Mcallister for for decades,,,he was the only doctor who was able to keep my migrain and muscle pain at bay..I cannot speak more highly of this doctor,who takes the time to listen and REALLY CARE,about what is going on with my pain.He is an amazing doctor who really cares for his patients. he is one of a handful of doctors left in this modern day of living that CARES.for that I thank you you Dr.Mcallister
A exceptional skilled and caring doctor.
I Have beenseeing him for17 yrs now and he will greatly b missed. U wish he didn't move to Stamford I don't drive because of my epilepsy so I probably got to get a new neurologist I'm not too happy..he did have me seizures go from about 50 a week down to 5 a month..he will b missed
I have been a patient of Dr. Mcallister for over 10 years. He is very attentive to my conditions and has guided me through these years. I feel very comfortable with all his recommendations and would highly recommend him to everyone.
Dr Mcallister is the best doctor in the world. I have suffered migraines for 40 years and he has helped me control my migraines. I would highly recommend Dr Mcallister to any one. He has the best Bedside Manner of any doctor that I have ever seen in my lifetime. He is truly the BEST!!!!!! He is truly a 10 star doctor!
Dr. McAllister has been treating me since my initial diagnosis with MS almost 13 years ago. Even though I have moved about an hour away, he will always remain my neurologist. He takes the time to listen to me, he is kind and caring and together we figure out what the next step in my care will be. I have never met a doctor who is more invested in his patients. He is what every doctor should be.
I met Dr Mcallister a few years ago with numbness It took a while but he never gave up He is the kindest Dr I have ever met he talks to you remembers things that you have spoken about with him medical and personal I am his tweet because of my age with ms he's always there for me even though its hard to get a appointment
Dr. Mac as I call him is the most caring and genuine Dr. I have known. I have been seeing him for 15 years & will not see anyone else. He takes the time to listen to me & is always open to alternative options & doesn't just reach for the prescription pad. At the large office it could be an issue getting an appt. with him - but usually a call to him got the problem solved.
I have been a patient of the doctor for several years, and as someone who has seen numerous neuroligists for chronic migraine headaches, I can share that he is among the very best. He is very easy to talk to, concerned about your health and welfare (beyond just neurology) and is thorough in exploring options so that you are comfortable.
We all go together to see Dr. McAllister - My mom (neuropathy and a small stroke), my daughter (migraines and fibro) and me (MS and headaches). He makes it fun and is very helpful. Warm is a good word for Dr. M.
My 12 year old daughter had severe daily headaches for 6 months. We went to many different doctors in CT and NY. Finally my pediatrician called Dr. Mcallister and (despite being very, very booked), he saw us the next day. Boy are we ever happy! He spent a lot of time with us, and put my daughter (who is shy) totally at ease. He then did some tests that no one else considered and diagnosed her with something called pseudotumor. With medicines, diet some other things he recommended my daughter's headaches are gone and she's back in school. A total gem!
Best Doctor Experience Ever.
Calm, smart, caring. Funny too. I like not just him but the whole staff - from therapists, counselors, nurses, to the technicians. A very comprehensive center. AND, Dr Mcallister was the only doctor would diagnosed and fixed my problem
Having been to several neurologists for treatment of headaches, Dr. McAllister is top notch, caring and knowledgable. However, he is difficult to get an appointment with, and I have had several appointments cancelled on me, having to then wait two to three months for the next available, which is quite frustrating when in pain. The phone system is difficult to navigate and messages are not readily returned.
He is a bright man with a caring bedside manner!! Recommeded highly trhrew others!!
Came a long way to see Dr. M. I was NOT disappointed! He diagnosed my problem on the spot (cervical dystonia), spent lots of time explaining the condition and then treated me right then and there. Within a week I was feeling great! He was the fourth doctor I went to for this ailment and Dr. M. took unbelievable care of me. He's SO calm and reassuring that you just trust him.
Dr. McAllister is a smart and caring physician. He has a calm and confident bedside manner and is the first Dr. that our daughter has seen that gave her confidence that she could get better from debilitating migrane and stomach pain. The fact that he is heavily booked "goes with the territory" as this is the norm with the best docs. Highly recommended.
Best doctor experience I have ever had.
Extremely competent as well as having a great bedside manner. Only doctor I've met to date, that's focused on finding a "cure" vs treating the symptoms. I've already referred others to this doctor and will continue to do so in the future. I don't generally give "excellent" reviews, but so far my experience has been just that: EXCELLENT.
fantastic headache specialist, very caring. treats adults and kids with respect. My family and I couldn't be happier with Dr. McAllister.
