Richmond, VA |
Had a referral to see this doctor and only seen his nurse. Totally disrespectful and unprofessional. Although he only looked at my record and referral I'm sure my insurance will be billed as if I was seen by him. Supposed to go back after a few tests that were ordered but think I'm going to ask to be seen by a real professional.

I had a disc blow out and was pushing on my sciatic nerve I was recommended to Dr McAllister from my regular doctor I had quick appointments and he gave me my options and let me decide how we wanted to go and I decided on the surgery immediately after waking up from surgery I felt a hundred times better if anybody has a problem with this doctor then you got problems nice courteous and did an excellent job and the surgery he performed on me was a microdiscectomy.

Dr. McAllister is very direct but also is able to put you at ease. He told me I had a benign tumor on my spine but was extremely confident that it could be removed and I would have no limitations after surgery (except normal recovery time). He was prompt with my appointments and very reassuring to my family and myself in the hospital after the surgery. Great personality and even better surgeon!
Gloucester, VA |
He is a great neurosurgeon. He analyzed my problem, made recommendations, and performed the surgery. I am 100% better!!! I would recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding surgeon.
in Hampton Virginia |
He has no empathy for his patients he used me for target practice messed my body up degraded me than dismissed me from his practice I trusted this man and he though nothing of me left me disfigured and passed me to his colleague their comes a time when you stop being a Doctor politically correct and have compassion for those who entrusted in him their never was any from him its all about the color of skin and insurance with him I pray that none of his love ones suffer as I have with this man.
