Saw Dr. McAllister for hiatal hernia repair. I found him very personable and felt at ease talking to him. He explained the issues I have and took plenty of time explaining the surgery options for me. I got in to see him in a timely manner and his staff were all very courteous and professional. Although I will be scheduling my surgery for a later date as it is not urgently needed, I will definately have him do the surgery. I studied his credentials and references and feel confident in his care.

When I met Dr. McAllister in his office, I was very nervous but he was smiling and friendly. He listened without being abrupt or in a hurry. He was willing to do an excisional biopsy under local anesthetic. Dr. McAllister and his team at North Tampa Ambulatory Surgery Center id a great job. They were competent and highly professional yet also compassionate and reassuring. I have only a small incision. I'm grate- ful to Dr. McAllister for his surgical skills and his kindness.

Dr McAllister was very friendly and courteous and explained my options for my Hernia surgery.The surgery center is top notch and the other doctors and nurses were just fantastic! I'm very glad I chose this facility for my health care needs.

He takes time to tell you about your procedure and the reason that you need the procedure. He leaves nothing to chance making sure that his diagnoses is correct.

Dr. McAllister is at the top of my list when I think of a DR who is genuinley caring. He understands that patients are people first. Unnecessary test? Extra cost? Extra B.S.? Not with this man. If every Doctor you see was as real and down to earth as this man, health Care would have a far better reputation these days. God Bless you Sir. DW
