Dr Allen Ho was extremely thorough in explaining what I would expect during and after the procedure. He made me feel confident that when I was wheeled to the OR, there was no doubt that I was in good hands.

I was thankful he did such a good job. Everyone asks who did you thyroid cancer surgery? I can barely see the scar they tell me. I respond Dr Ho at Cedar and they respond well if I ever get that cancer I know who to go to.

I went to Dr Ho for a second opinion and he was condescending and dismissive of me as a woman. He suggested vitamins....I left immediately. My referring endocrinologist called me to apologize. Do not go to this doctor.

Dr. Ho was approachable, friendly, explained in detail what my procedure would entail, listened to my concerns and made my parathyroid procedure go smoothly. My recovery was as expected and I would highly recommend Dr. Ho to others.

I was very nervous about this surgery before finding Dr Ho. He made me feel at ease and was very knowledgable and professional. I am healing well and very satisfied with the result of my surgery. I also liked the follow up on the computer that allowed me to more easily keep up with the necessary prep and be aware after surgery of what was normal so I didn't worry.

I had a parathyroidectomy done recently by Dr. Allen Ho. It was a complete success and there was little pain involved. Dr. Ho is so competent and so kind, and was always available when I had a question (which I did once, early on a Sunday morning ... which is probably not the best time to contact an extremely busy doctor. He responded in less than 15 minutes!). I highly recommend him.
