If I could give her a zero, I would.

I'm cracking up as I'm reading all these comments about how awful she is. My experience with her goes back to 2010, and I still don't like her. She did a laparoscopy for me to determine if I had Endometriosis. I did. When I went back to her 8 months later to tell her my symptoms came back worse than before, she treated me as if I was making it up to get pain meds. It was almost as if she was offended that I dare suggest she didn't heal me completely (for those that don't know, there's no such thing as getting rid of Endo. It just keeps coming back). As stated by others, her mannerism sucks. She an awful person, not friendly, not approachable, makes you feel like an idiot. I don't know how anyone could possibly have a good experience with her, but congrats if you're one of the few. She doesn't belong in the medical field dealing with patients face to face. I do not recommend seeing her.

terrible doctor

Dr Mcallister was my OB when I was pregnant with my daughter. This was my first pregnancy so of course I had questions. She has no personality and made me feel like an idiot any time I had a question. A year after I had my daughter I had the IUD put in. She pierce my cervix and the IUD ended up in my abdomen. I had horrible pain for 1 week.I ended up in the er and had to have surgery to remove it. Leaving me with a huge bill. Multicare and & Dr. Mcallister wont own up to the mistake.

One Star

I went to her for my second pregnancy which was fine. She was very to the point which I don't mind. However, I inquired about a tubal ligation at my 6week postpartum check up and was informed she only does tubals with a metal clip. I asked her what the clip was made of as I'm allergic to nickel and inquired about being able to have an mri with them in my body etc. I was told they are fine with all imaging and they are made of titanium. I went ahead with the procedure. Within a month and a half I started having joint pain followed by hair loss, unusually painful breasts, cystic acne, phantom smells, extreme fatigue, heavy bleeding and spotting between periods. My family dr ran many tests which were all negative. When I saw Dr Mcallister for the heavy bleeding and spotting she said it was my body adjusting to not being on birth control. I reminded her I hadn't used birth control in over 6 years. She then suggested that I should start using it again to help with my symptoms. I reminded her that birth control makes my skin condition worse which is why I chose a permanent supposedly non hormonal alternative. Fast forward a year and my symptoms are not better and I now have burning pain and cramps daily, so I contacted cooper surgical (the makers of filshie clips used for my tubal ligation) and find out the silicone lining of the clip contains nickel and they recommend a patch test before surgery to check for hypersensitivity. I would have never risked the procedure knowing this!!!

Does well with a fast questions

Ok. I love Dr. McAllister!! I am an educated medical provider, and I have a lot of questions. I jump from question to question, topic to topic...in the middle of her answers, and she rolls with. She tells you risks, statistics, facts, and her recommendations, and often they are NOT what we want to hear, but at the end of the day, I want my Dr. to give me their opinion. She gave me an excellent C-section, supported me through a miscarriage, and I cant wait to have her be my Dr. again!
