I've seen Dr. Ho for pain management to deal with failed spinal surgery syndrome. Pain radiated from low back into my feet. Dr. Ho is an excellent diagnostician and over time restored a huge amount of my functionality. Empathetic and skilled. I have sent friends and family to him confidently.

Treated me for over 5 years before he moved to California. He has been one of the reasons I have gotten through some really bad times. One of the best and most compassionate doctors I’ve ever met. All his guidance was right on the mark and he knows how to look forward and anticipate things that are often overlooked by other doctors. I really miss him on the east coast.

My name is Deborah B. I had the most painful facial pain caused by my trigeminal nerve. All the doctors had given up on me when I went to Dr. Ho. He listened and knew exactly where to treat my pain. I was suicidal when I met him and he performed a miracle on me. I went from non -functioning and excruciating pain to lunching with friends and traveling to see relatives. I am so saddened that Dr. Ho left New York but I assure you that there is no one better in California.

Dr. Ho is the most professional ,gentleand knowledgeable pain mgmt M.D. I have had the luck to have been referred to. I had been to 3 other pain practices, one who actually injured me badly at memorial Sloan kettering. Dr ho did my procedure ( epidural corticosteroid) in 15 minutes explaining every step to calm my nerves. He has done several others ( steroid injections) and the pain is so lessened after each one. I can walk!! Just to add, his knowledge of physiology amazes me.Credentals great!
