Dr. Marc McAllister joined Gorge Urology in 2010.
A native of The Dalles, Dr. McAllister attended Willamette University before entering one of the country’s most prestigious medical schools, Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. He then completed a urology internship and residency training at Loma Linda University.
Dr. McAllister was drawn to urology because of the opportunity to provide care for a broad range of conditions and the rapid technological advances seen in the specialty. He has been trained in the latest urological techniques, including minimally invasive surgery and robotics.
There are many surgeries we can do robotically, which before would have required big incisions and multiple-day hospital stays. Patients can now go home in a day or two,” explains Dr. McAllister.
Dr. McAllister encourages patients to play an active role in their care by helping them understand their condition and treatment options, which may include lifestyle changes, medical and/or surgical solutions.
In his free time, Dr. McAllister enjoys cooking, hiking, biking, golfing and spending time with his family.
