Dr Ho is a brilliant surgeon, he performed a very difficult surgery removing a parotid tumor on the left side of my face and neck . He even called me on his day off to give me the results of my biopsy, not too many surgeons would do that. I would highly recommend Dr Ho.

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.

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.
