cant think of anything negative about him....simply awesome with professional bedside manner
I admire Dr. Allen Ho's attentiveness and his decision making during and after my surgery. Since this was my first major operation, he was very calm and collected when explaining things to me. I felt very reassured overall and that I knew I would be in good hands. That made me feel at ease. He did such a wonderful job in taking out my thyroid tumor at the end. He is a great doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an ENT doctor. Thank you!
The double-edged sword of Dr. Ho being so excellent is that when we make an appointment, it takes several months to see him. But he definitely lives up to his reputation. Superb.
