    We need more doctors like Phillip Mc Allister. He is interested in the long term recovery of his patients and has their best interest at the forefront of their treatment plan. His nurses are also very helpful and kind.

    Well, I just feel that Dr. McAllister, you know, he wasn't really, you know, he wasn't really trying to listen at explain to me, he was talking words and I really didn't understand. You know about what you was saying about, you know my condition and you know, I really, I really just feel that you know. You didn't answer my questions You talked to over me. I didn't like that. I didn't like that.

    I've been a patient of Dr. Phillip McAllister for over two years including surgery. I've had nothing but the best care and attention from him and his staff. If only all of the medical community were as thoughtful and caring as his office is, health care would be so much better in our country.

    The front desk person was polite and very efficient. The nurse that came in was very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr McAllister, was and is, always very patient, takes his time, and listens to what was said. He does not rush the patient and is very understanding. He will explain things several times if needed

    Dr. McAllister was one of the best, most thorough, one of the most intelligent physicians I've ever encountered. They were courteous, kind, and helpful. I'll be more than happy to recommend him for anybody looking for a neurosurgeon. Thank you.
