Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Ho is a caring and compassionate doctor. He explains in ways it is easily understood. He is unusual in that he would rather read the actual diagnostic test itself and not just what the diagnostic doctor concludes in the report. He is even more detailed than the written report. I consider this to be a cut above an ordinary doctor who goes strictly by the report which may be wrong before. He takes time to map out treatment plans. He can be cautious and recommends more tests than necessary rather than withhold tests like most PPO and HMO doctors do. I consider this to be beneficial to the patient. Because he takes time needed during his examination, there is a tendency to run over your time slot. I have since introduced my friends and family members to him. Our family has been his patients since 2014.

Ordered two hearing tests just to make money for himself. I was sent to him for an entirely unrelated condition as a consult. I did not have a hearing problem but he saw this as an opportunity to profit--two times! Was of no help whatsoever in terms of my actual condition and I found him off-putting in general.
