I have been a patient of Dr. Ho for over 10 years now. As a testament not to the facilities but to the doctor, I follow him to the various facilities where he has practiced. Dr. Ho takes a holistic approach to treating and supporting his patients. When I first visited his practice, he said to me, “let’s find a way to improve your quality of life”. Over the years, this is exactly what he has done. He wanted to understand my future goals, current life/health happenings, and create a treatment plan best suited for me. He is a highly intelligent doctor, skilled c, and a very kind man. During my last surgery, Dr. Ho went above and beyond, spending hours to remove every tumor and stitch me up cleanly. I highly recommend Dr. Ho for all of your OB/GYN and surgical needs. The world needs more doctors like Dr. Allan W Ho.

Dr. Ho performed an oophorectomy for me. He was wonderful from beginning to end. There were no complications at all. He calmly took my worried phone calls and was engaging and thorough and also personal in our post-op appointment. He engaged patiently after surgery with my waiting husband while i was still sedated. His nurse crew at Beth Israel Mt Sinai in Chelsea all worked both humanely and professionally. Dr. Ho works out of the Charles B. Wang clinic in Chinatown - all the physicians and

I highly recommend Dr. Ho. He performed an endometrial biopsy and uterine polyp removal on me. The surgery went well with no problems or discomfort. Before and after the surgery, Dr. Ho explained everything to me and answered all my questions. Dr. Ho is an excellent doctor and an excellent surgeon. He is a very caring doctor who is very concerned about his patients and he is very easy to talk to.

Dr. Ho performed my hysterectomy and my experience working with him was excellent. I had very large fibroids and an enlarged and irregular uterus. Dr. Ho was able to complete my procedure laproscopically, which we were not sure was going to be possible. This was my fourth surgical procedure for fibroids and was by far the smoothest.

I had 4 fibrous (one of the fibrous was more than 7cm) and had a 7cm cyst in the ovary. I was so scared when I found out. I spoke to my family doctor who is also a surgeon and my gynecologist. They both told me that Birkin cut was the only way to remove my fibrous. But Dr. Allan Ho did the operation with robotics (opened 3 holes only). He spent more than 4 hours on the robotics operation for removing 4 fibrous and one side of ovary. I was back to work less than 3 weeks. Dr. Ho is a good doctor.

I cannot imagine a better surgeon than Dr Ho. He thoroughly explained my medical options, listening to my issues and answering my questions. When I woke up from thetotal anaesthesia I had NO PAIN AT ALL, and later walked out of Downtown Hospital, feeling pretty good. During the following days I still had no pain, no swelling, and no discomfort. I resumed my normal life almost immediately. I am so very grateful to Dr Ho, and truly could not recommend him more highly. He is a Master Surgeon.

Discussing the upcoming surgery Dr Ho calmed my fears, explained everything thoroughly, and inspired me with confidence that I would be all right afterwards. Coming to after the surgery, I felt no discomfort. I healed well and with no complications.. As I resumed my sex life I was still very protective of the actual scar, the stitches on my lower abdomen. But the sex was good and unchanged from what it was before, and the way my vagina felt and my muscles functioned was just superb!!

Dr. Ho is truly amazing! Before my friend recommended him to me, I saw three surgeons who all said I needed a "bikini" cut for my hysterectomy. Dr. Ho said he was confident that he could do my surgery through three tiny incisions narrower than my pinky. He performed my surgery without a hitch. I was only a little sore afterwards and didn't even need to take pain pills. Two months after the surgery, the scars were barely visible. My pain and heavy bleeding before the surgery were all gone!

I recently had a myomectomy performed by Dr. Allan Ho with Charles Wang Community Heath Center that was everything I hoped. Dr. Ho was extremely empathetic. My interaction with him epitomized what the Doctor- patient relationship should be. He listened and worked to put into practice the decisions I made for my care. When necessary he provided essential medical guidance, always expressing to me his concern and respect for my role as decision maker in this relationship. I recommend Dr Allan Ho

Dr. Ho did an excellent job of caring for my mother-in-law before, during, and after her surgery. She was very pleased with his bedside manner and his ability to explain and support her unique wishes in relation to the procedure. He was very respectful of her personal opinions and body, and incorporated that into her treatment. Thank you, Dr. Ho!

I have never met a Doctor so professional, hardworking, caring and friendly. I was amazed to find a doctor spending so much time with his patients. Dr. Ho performed surgery on me, 2 weeks ago and I was so impressed on how he performed.I went into the OR knowing that everything would be fine.I had no complications, no infection, less pain, neatly done and most of all his attitude and smiles gave me the assurance and confidence for his success. Thank you Dr. Ho and your team for a job well done.

I had an approximately 20cm big ovarian cyst. Dr.Ho recommended me to have a bikini cut when all the other doctors told me that a large cut on the belly was the only choice. There was a cancer expert asked me to sign a consent form which stated to have the ovarian cyst remove with my left side ovary which scares me!! The surgery that Dr.Ho provided went extremely well and it only leaves a 6cm cut. I highly recommended Dr.Ho !
