What People Say About Dr. David McAllister, DO
Reply
I first met Dr. McAllister moments before my procedure in the cath lab, I found him attentive, cordial and friendly. He answered questions thoroughly with examples so I could better understand my situation and the procedure. Afterward, he took time to be sure I understood what I needed for after care. This is the third interventional cardiologist I have seen at Iowa Heart Center over the years and by far the one I most prefer. I felt very comfortable and confident in his skilled hands.
