Dr. McAllister grew up here in Johnson County. He initially attended Johnson County Community College, then went to Kansas State University to complete degrees in Biology, Physics, and Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation he returned to the Kansas City area.
The next 5 years he practiced in the Brookside area, then continued to practice in the Waldo area for another 5 years. During this time Dr. McAllister lived in Shawnee with his wife, children, and multiple critters.
In 1993 Dr. McAllister came to Parkway Animal Hospital, and soon afterwards he and his family moved to Lenexa.
Besides enjoying time with family and pets, Dr. McAllister enjoys photography, playing on the guitar, being a car buff, and is actively involved with his church and his children's school.
After 20 years at Parkway Animal Hospital he continues to be excited about new discoveries that can make life better for our canine and feline family members.
