Dr. McAllister – Testimonials

Just got started with the process of knee replacement. Dr. McAllister was very patient and went over all details until I was satisfied. The staff is very efficient and is taking care of the many details and appointments. I am encouraged that all will go well.

At the time of my surgery I was in pain and having difficulty working and even sleeping. I am three months post surgery and my hip is pain free! The scar is minimal and my strength increases daily, that’s important because my job requires physical strength. I found Dr McAllister to be be professional, thorough and his bedside manor put me at ease. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with my total hip replacement!

Would recommend to anyone

Great from start to finish

I had two total hip replacements (right and left) done by Dr. McAllister. I couldn’t be more pleased! As an adult in my mid-sixties, I work full time in a Magnet School teaching the early childhood age group. I no longer use any canes or walkers, and am able to dance, move, jog and stretch with all of them! I highly recommend Dr. McAllister and his whole team - their pleasant demeanor and reassurance made the whole two experiences worth it! His experience in this field is outstanding. I would not have gone with any other surgeon.

Very good doctor

Great doctors!

Great experience, will highly recommend Dr. McAllister to friends and family.
