      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
