I had an incredibly good experience with Dr. McAlister. I was told by numerous friends that foot surgery is very painful. Dr. McAlister took the time to really listen to me, review my X-rays, weigh my options, and generate a plan that we were both confident in. My surgery went very well. I will be referring trusted friends family and colleagues to Dr. McAlister.

I appreciate all the time and effort Dr. McAlister spent with me over my arthritic and painful ankle. He did thorough research and uncovered a problem that I might have with an ankle implant. I’m not sure yet if I’m going to have an ankle fusion. But Dr. McAlister is on the top of my short list for doctors.

Dr. McAlister is top notch in every aspect. His direct straight forward approach is greatly appreciated. His willingness to take on challenging cases is matched only by his professional skill set to create a successful protocol. After recently undergoing a major foot revision surgery , I found his attention to detail incredibly thorough and reassuring. It is evident he values my input and commits sufficient appointment time to clearly answer my questions in terms I can relate with. Additionally, his office staff is professional, helpful, and responsive. I look forward to their friendly interaction each appointment. Again...top notch!

As a physician myself treating chronic pain, I appreciate how important it is for a surgeon to have both the technical skills and compassionate bedside manner necessary to provide truly excellent care. Dr McAlister is the best foot surgeon in the Greater Phoenix area, inclusive of both ORTHOPEDIC and PODIATRIC surgeons. He can handle the most complex of fractures and medical conditions with true expertise. Dr McAlister operated on my foot and cured me of my painful condition and the recovery was quick and he was always available to answer questions. No need to get a second opinions and you dont need to look any further than Dr McAlister to handle your foot/ankle concerns. He is the best. Thanks for your help and great care!

I have been seeing Dr. McAlister since he repaired my badly fractured ankle in 2014. As he warned me I would, I developed osteoarthritis in my ankle by 2018. Because of my history of infection he tried everything to avoid a total replacement, but it became obviously the best solution last October. I’m very happy with the new ankle. Unfortunately, I acquired another infection (not from anything Dr. McAlister did). He was quick to do everything he could to get the incision healed. I trust him implicitly. I know that mine has been a very difficult case and I know that he cares deeply about my healing. I’m so glad that he has been my doctor throughout this journey with me.

I had a very painful bunion. For years I have hesitated getting help. After meeting Dr.. McAlister, any hesitation vanished, and we scheduled surgery the same day. He knows what he is doing!

I had a fantastic experience from start to finish. Dr McAlister took time to answer all of my questions and prepared me for what to expect. He provided excellent care with the newest technology and procedures. He even personally reached out to me with in a couple days of surgery to make sure all was going well.

I reached out to Dr. McAlister about my painful bunion that kept me out of the shoes that I loved, but hurt me by the end of the day. He walked me through the process and answered all of my questions thoroughly. Everything went so smoothly and I felt very confident with Dr. McAlister. Just one week after surgery I was walking in a boot! I’ve been in the boot for six weeks and I’m currently making the transition into shoes. Really excited to get back into my workout routine and wearing shoes that I love! I knew I should have done this sooner. Thank you, Dr. McAlister!

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!!!

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.

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.
