Dr Ho is knowledgeable, personable, caring-I've appreciated his care.

Reviewed on Nov 6, 2020

I seemed to be judged by the dr and that determined my prognosis. The exam was not very thorough or explanatory. Although he did give me time to ask questions, he did not seem to have answers and "guessed" as to why there were issues. Those guesses did not make sense to the injury so I left with a lack of confidence in my diagnosis and prognosis.

Reviewed on Oct 16, 2020

Dr. Ho was great. He found my medical problem and explained what I needed to do to start the healing process. It was a pleasure to meet with him, his knowledge and polite attitude made me feel confident that I came to the right physician.
