My wife and I have been going to Dr. Ho for about 20 years. He is an excellent physician and very skilled. Very easy to deal with. Highly recommend him.

BEWARE!!!!! Dr. Ho uses RNs to provide the anesthesia for his procedures. He does not use an anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist. This is a very dangerous practice (ask Joan Rivers). Do you want someone with zero training in anesthesia administering propofol to you or your family member? He also claims that he can not do an EGD and colonoscopy at the same visit due to medicare rules. That is a LIE. He won't do them together because then he can't bill you for both procedures seperatley

I went to Dr. Ho for a routine colonoscopy after a prior one by another doctor a year earlier had some issues for followup. I found Dr. Ho to be very down to earth, easy to talk with, and reassuring about my concerns. The procedure went without a hitch (in as much as a colonoscopy can), and he spent plenty of time after the procedure and at the followup office visit recapping what he found and discussing future treatment.
