I had severe pain in both my feet. I had a complication with my first foot Surgery that was not done by him. He took over my care. He is the only foot Surgeon I will ever go to. I have had at least 7+ surgeries by Dr. McAlister. He took great care of me. He saved both my feet. I could never thank him enough for all he has done. If it wasn't for him I guarantee I would not have come out of all this with the use of both of my feet. t. I will forever be grateful!!! BEST DOCTOR EVER!!!

Dr McAlister did my ankle replacement and restored my mobility. This enabled me to get through the day without terrible pain. He is not only an excellent surgeon, but a kind and caring Doctor who takes time with his patients and explains everything to their satisfaction. He is the best!

I first met Dr. McAlister at Core Institution in Sun City West. He recently moved to his new location. He is very professional yet easy to talk with. He came up with an easy solution to my situation...a simple injection in my ankle! Be sure to visit him to discuss you foot problems!

Dr. McAlister is not only a talented surgeon, he is a shining example to other doctors. His demeanor and bedside manner are impeccable and his ability to treat each of his patients as his equal is unmatched. I just happened to be lucky enough that he was the doctor on call after a car accident left extensive damage to my ankle. I am very grateful that he was on call that day and I would recommend him to anyone I know.

I had a tendon snap in my foot. Dr McAlister had to do a graft in order to fix. Did a great job. Going thru rehab now and it’s going very well.

Dr. McAlister operated on my left foot removing infected bone over the course of two operations. He saved the foot and even the toe! I found Dr. McAlister professional, straight forward and personable. At the hospital he is a force of nature-a whirlwind. Sightings on the floor are a relished occasion. Post-surgical care went well. He told me what to do and I did it Healing went very well. His staff is excellent. I would recommend to anyone unreservedly.

Dr. McAlister was my mothers surgeon when she fell and broke her foot six days after moving to Sun City from Tucson. She was seen the day of her fall; and had surgery three days later. He has been so caring and has explained everything to her in a manner she understands. We would highly recommend him!!!

Had a Bunionectomy. Dr McAlister was wonderful! I would recommend this surgeon as THE BEST! My foot looks wonderful. Minimal scarring which I am resolving with Mederma. I can wear my boots again. Slight swelling lasts about a year I am guessing. Be sure and call nurse if your pain is not controlled. I wish I would have not waited until the morning that first night.

Dr. McAlister is a great Podiatrist. He is very personable and professional. He takes the time to sit and talk with his patients. He helped me with my stress fracture and I was able to continue working without complications. He also diagnosed and treated my son's sports injury and he was able to return to sport without any issues. He prioritizes excellent rapport with his patients. I highly recommend Dr. McAlister to anyone looking for a good Podiatrist.

I could not be more pleased with my post-operative results after my tri-malleolar fracture nearly 2 months ago. I would recommend Dr. McAlister to family and friends, and seek his expertise again in the future if needed.

Dr. McAlister reconstructed my foot from previous surgery by another doctor. He did a fantastic job. He is very pleasant and easy to talk to. Would recommend him highly. I can wear sandals again, thanks to Dr. McAlister!

I ruptured my Achilles and Dr McAllister did a great job of putting me back together. From my first appointment Dr McAllister and his team were great to work with, knowledgeable, informative and professional. He treats you feel like a person instead of a patient number. I would highly recommend Dr McAllister and his team.

I went to see Dr. McAlister after I had two failed bunion surgeries on my right foot. I was pleased to see that he does bunion revision surgery. From the moment I went to his office I knew I was in the right place to get help. He is friendly, knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything about the surgery, what to expect with recovery etc. I was given complete care instruction on how to care for my foot inbetween visits with the assurance that they were available for any question.

I had problems with hammer toes, went to see Dr. McAlister, I like his demeanor right away and very confident, he suggested what procedure to do regarding my hammer toes, and the procedure went without a hitch, I'm extremely satisfied with his work and more important with the results, and If I ever have any kind of problems with my feet he'll be the one I'll be calling, no doubt about that??????

I am 5 weeks into a (R) ankle fusion, having just received my second cast with a port for a Bone Stimulator. I have been a patient with the CORE for nine years and could not be in better hands. If you are suffering from any type of foot issues, PLEASE make an appointment with Dr. McAlister and have your options explained to you.
