Bunion surgery
He performed bunion surgery on my right foot. Making me arrive two hours prior to the start time seemed like a waste of time especially since my start time was pushed back almost an hour but that was the only negative point through the process. The support staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the prepping area was clean and comfortable. Follow up appointment was made before I left. All in all a great experience.

Awesome Doctor and Staff!
I would give this doctor and his staff a 10 star if I could! I didn't feel rushed, all my questions were answered, and I know exactly what I need to do to heal the stress fracture of my seismoid. It was an absolute great experience. I will definitely recommend this doctor to all my friends and family

Dr. McAlister has treated me for a heel spur and plantar fasciitis using Platelet Rich Plasma and shock wave therapy. When I started seeing him I had been experiencing serious and annoying pain in my foot for over a year, and the conventional therapies had all been tried (night splint, shoe insert, orthopedic boot, steroid shot) to no avail. I also had seen someone for cryotherapy which was only palliative, and another for myofascial therapy (which gave some improvement but didn't take away the recurring pain over time). Over a period of about four months under Dr. McAlister's care, I have seen positive improvement, and can now spend most of the day on my foot in supportive shoes and can remain comfortable without causing inflammation in my foot. I am feeling relieved and grateful for his help with my issue!

Dr. McAlister was present, listened to my questions and answered clearly and in terms that I could understand. He exuded a confidence that allayed my anxiety about an upcoming surgery. His website goes well beyond most surgeons in providing prep tips for pre and post surgery. His entire staff is helpful, friendly and engaged. Awesome experience!

Listens, Explains and Cares
Dr. McAlister and staff was great to work with. They saw me earlier in the year for some ankle and foot pains I started having. He treated the issue and was able to pinpoint the main cause for everything and ended up having to have surgery. The surgery turned out great and after 3 weeks now I am seeing great results and happy we found him. The best part is he explains everything and listened to all my talking which some surgeons like the one I used for my shoulder just rush through the explanation and don't have time to listen to the patients even if its nonsense. I just felt like Dr. McAlister cared even if what I was saying was my self diagnosis, LOL! He also sat down with my wife while I was waking up from surgery to explain what he found and fixed and future expectations. A+++ and will be doing my left ankle later this year with him.

The office was able to get me in the next day after rupturing my Achilles. Surgery was scheduled promptly the following week. Dr McAlister and staff have been excellent in every way. Highly recommend.

Phenomenal Foot & Ankle Doc
Dr. McAlister is super talented and very personable. He's really easy to converse with and his commitment to the patient's interest is just unwavering. I once ran into him after-hours as he was leaving his clinic, and he went out of his way to help even in his personal time. My experience has been excellent on all fronts.

I had an injury to my foot years ago. I had been to many doctors including orthopedic surgeon, pcp, and other podiatrist. He is the only one who diagnosed my problem and offered a solution. I am well on my way to walking normally without pain for the first time in years.

I was thoroughly impressed with the staff and Dr. McAlister. They were very kind, patient and professional. I felt like I was visiting a friend and talking about my "old lady" foot problems. Dr. McAlister knows his stuff and the staff are efficient and polite. I was seen quickly and never waited long even for a new patient appointment and my surgery was scheduled on my first visit. If you need foot care I would recommend him over anyone else! Following up after surgery. I had a concern post op and they invited me to come into the office right away. Dr. McAlister was kind, humorous and helpful. Still very grateful for my choice in his practice. After three and a half months post surgery I was released to run, hike, etc. Today I am editing my review to take one star down because my last two visits I was "roomed" quickly and kindly as usual then waited over 45 minutes to sesee the doctor. My apt felt rushed and am grateful I asked questions.I would still recommend and am happy he's busy.

My first appointment with Dr. McAlister July 7, 2021. He confirmed what other doctors had diagnosed — arthritis in ankle meant I was bone on bone. We scheduled total ankle replacement surgery for September 28. Surgery was performed and also had my hammer toe corrected. Recovery requires patience. The last appointment was May 2. X-rays show everything is good. My next appointment will be at one year anniversary. Dr. McAlister is thorough, encouraging and honest. His staff is the same. I would not hesitate to recommend Phoenix Foot and Ankle to anyone with concerns regarding their feet and/or ankles.
