Patient Comments (7)
in Philadelphia, PA |
He has helped my 90 year old Aunt keep her vision for the last 12 years. We faithfully go to the Mid Atlantic Retina at Wills Eye in center city Philadelphia every 6 to 8 weeks. She is a great judge of her vision. Dr. Ho has worked with her on the time frame that when the vision slips we make our appointment, hence every 6 to 8 weeks. With out Dr. Ho vision would not be possible. We are greatfull for all he has done.
in Langhorne, PA |
Dr. Ho is very thorough and professional. He explains the problem,correction procedure and expected results in plain English to assure the patient understands precisely what to expect. I would recommend Dr. Ho to anyone requiring Retina surgery.
Mullica Hill, NJ |
The physician is professional & skilled. The staff is supportive to the physician but more importantly to his clients. This results in positive outcome, efficiency & satisfaction for the whole visit experience. It starts with MaryAnn, Michelle, Julie and Karen continues through all facets of interactions such as greeting at reception desk to tedious medication cerifications.
in Cherry Hill, NJ |
Quite simply Dr. Ho is as good as doctors get. He knows the latest research. In fact he creates much of it himself. His exams are thorough. He spots problems instantly and clearly explains therapy options. His injections are swift and painless. Most surprisingly, his cheerful personality makes visits times to look forward to and not dread. Two friends from NJ feel the same way about Dr. Ho. We cannot recommend him too strongly.
in Avalon, NJ |
Dr. Ho is a caring professional with a wealth of knowledge. Great chair side manner.
in Brick, NJ |

Very thorough. Would recommend. Waiting time in office is too long. I would warn others.
