Reston, VA |
I met Dr. McAllister for the first time this morning and was very impressed with him. He was very professional, patient, and had a very calming effect. After diagnosing my potential cataract condition, he explained to me the next steps in the treatment process. I would highly recommend him to other patients. Dr. Rich recommended Dr. McAllister to me before he retired, and he was right on.
