Dr. Terence R. McAllister grew up with four brothers in Andover, Massachusetts where he attended Phillips Academy. Dr. McAllister went on to study biology at Colby College in Waterville, Maine and received his medical degree from Tufts Medical School in Boston. While in medical school, Dr. McAllister enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served nine years (six active duty, three reserve) at several Air Force bases including Wright-Patterson in Dayton, Ohio and Kirtland in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
When Major McAllister’s commitment to the Air Force ended in 2006, he returned to his home state of Massachusetts to open a small, solo practice.
While in Massachusetts, Dr. McAllister was an active delegate to the Massachusetts Medical Society and a writer for Physicians Practice magazine where he advocated for many causes important to him, his family, and his patients including later school start times, firearm safety regulations, trauma-sensitive care, and single-payer healthcare.
In 2018, changes in the healthcare marketplace rendered Dr. McAllister’s solo practice business model no longer viable. Dr. McAllister and his family decided to turn the practice closing into an opportunity for adventure and moved to Las Vegas, where they enjoy biking, hiking, fine dining, and the occasional poker game.
