Born and raised in Slocomb, Dr. McAllister has been a practicing oncologist and partner at Dothan Hematology and Oncology since 2004. He treasures the sense of community. Each day, his goal is to help people achieve another birthday, more Christmas mornings, children’s graduations. Having had family members battle cancer, he believes there’s no quicker way to become part of someone’s family than to tell them that they have cancer and that you’re going to be with them in this journey. The people he cares for are more than just patients. They become friends.
Married to Allison McAllister, CRNP, he is blessed with four wonderful children. Dr. McAllister is also a longtime coach of Little League, Peewee Football, and basketball, and is an accomplished singer/songwriter/composer.
