Ratings for Dr. M. SCOTT McAllister
My father was diagnosed with lung cancer right before summer started. After much research, Dr. McAllister was selected. It has proven to be the best decision he could have made. I have never experienced such care and compassion from a doctor. I hope and pray every day that my Dad will beat this cancer, but if it is his time to go, I know that he had the best doctor that Alabama has to offer.
Dr. McAllister is the best doctor I've ever dealt with. He truly seems to care about the patient and not making money. He stays current on the latest treatments and keeps you "in the loop" on everything concerning your treatment. He takes the time to explain details to you in terms that you can easily understand.
There are not words to truly express how much I admire and trust Dr. McAllister. He is,without a doubt one in a million, without whom I cannot imagine going through cancer treatment. I have never felt more genuinely care about by a doctor as a patient or a person. Dr. Mc is so caring and compassionate that it is almost beyond belief. I always felt like my illness and my concerns were taken seriously and addressed appropriately. My fears were real and Dr. Mc acknowledged that as well. My faith is strong and I gave my situation to God and was determined to have a positive attitude during my treatment and refused to worry. He always told me that was the best medicine. I am thankful to Dr. Mc and his entire staff for seeing my through my treatment and helping me become the ovarian cancer survivor I am today. I would not wish cancer on anyone but should you find yourself needing an oncologist, I pray that you will be able to see Dr. Mc or another oncologist like him...if another exists.
The journey of cancer is certainly not an easy one however, when you have a wonderful Doctor like Dr. McAllister it certainly lessens the pain. Dr. McAllister and his staff have certainly made my journey much easier. When I first became his patient he was not an in-network physician and his Insurace Department did an outstanding job of making sure everything was approved and paid correctly. I want to thank Dr. McAllister for the excellent care, concern and for being my Doctor.
