I wish I can give him a NEGATIVE STAR. I suggest not going to him. He doesn't care at all! Didn't even say Hello when he walked in! Very Cold and Arrogant. He didn't go into ANY details of my injury, the surgery process, the after care, even when I asked. He seemed BOTHERED AND ANNOYED when I tried to ask him questions - almost every answer was "I can't answer that, it varies with every person!" I want a doctor, especially a surgeon, to fully explain the surgery and the aftercare and be willing and open to answer questions.
I do not know why Dr. McAllister got such a bad review from a couple people because my experience with him was totally the opposite ! He spent time with me and explained my options and performed the operation on my knee that was a success and I am thankful I chose him from the many surgeons I had to choose from . True the wait in his office can get lengthy but you might see that as a positive that so many trust his care instead of seeing it as disorganization .
