Qualifications and Experience
Tao A. Ho, M.D. was born in Vietnam and has been living in Texas since 1975. Armed with an undergraduate degree from The University of Texas at Austin, he attended The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where he also stayed for his residency. After serving as Chief Resident in 1997 - 1998, he followed his then girlfriend (now wife) to Dallas. Dr. Ho joined Dallas Medical Specialists in August 2007.
Dr. Ho sees the practice of medicine as a collaboration between himself and his patients. “Influenced by their life experiences, health, and exposure to our complicated health care system, each patient is unique. My job is to communicate with each individual person, and together, develop a plan to achieve their best medical health possible. I feel strongly about disease prevention and see education as vital to this goal. Ultimately, I want my patients to view me as someone who takes their health issues as seriously as I would my own.”
Away from medicine, Dr. Ho enjoys reading, following University of Texas Longhorn sports, and spending time with his family. His wife, Vi, is a dentist in Plano and they currently have a son, Thaden, with two more children planned in the next few years.

Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent care and communications as it has been for about 10 years, but sad as this was our last time to see him before he leaves DMS for his new venture.
I have been seeing Dr. Ho for 3 years. In my previous visits they have all been positive. I think very highly of Dr. Ho based on his reputation, referral from Dr. Downs, and my past visits. The visit today was very impersonal based on a 3 years doctor-patient relationship. I felt like I was in an assembly line at a minute clinic. This was the first time I have had this type of experience with an internist physician. He asked the minimum amount of questions about my symptoms, and he did not give me any feedback on my physical symptoms. He did not provide me any information about the medication he prescribed to me, nor the timeline I would start feeling better. He did not provide any advice on how to prevent sinus infections in the future, nor did he ask what medications I am currently taking. There was no opportunity to ask questions at the end of the visit. He did not seem to be genuinely concerned about my health. Unfortuntely, it was a cold experience today when I was feeling ill. I'm providing my true opinion and feedback based on my visit today.
Dr Ho is very knowledgeable and friendly. He seems very assertive and assuring of his diagnosis. Two thumbs up to this phenomenal doctor
Sad to hear of us losing him. He will be greatly missed
Overall very good. Felt a bit rushed though but that is pretty much a normal feeling with any healthcare visits it seems. Was told the X-rays I had taken may not get explained to me for a week until the doctor returns...hope there isn't anything of concern found. :)
Dr. Ho is a great doctor and I really enjoyed the great atmosphere and I would recommend him and his team to anyone.
As always, everything was simply great!!! Not only is Dr. Ho extremely professional, efficient, caring, but also very personable,kind, and helpful. One always feels relaxed and know that they have a wonderful physician who truly wants to be of service in every way possible: On a scale of 1-10, I would rate him as a 10+. While one knows he he is extremely busy, he always gives you the feeling that he truly cares about your overall health and that that is all he is concerned about at that point and time. While I regret that Dr. Ho will be leaving soon, I wish him continued success, health and happiness. Billie (Joyce) Anderson
Dr. Tao Ho was very polite, asked good relevant questions, performed a quick but thorough examination, was very easy to talk to and understand, and correctly treated my condition. He was very persronable, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a primary care doctor/internist.
I highly recommend him.
Always a pleasure to see Dr. Ho. I feel safe and cared for with his office staff. I have been seeing him for 10 years now.
I think he's a very competent doctor and I have seen him for over 8 years. He spends a lot of time with you even when you're on an HMO which normally dictates how much time a doc can see and consult with you. He actually saved my life when I had DVT.
Dr Ho is an excellent physician who inspires confidence in his patients. I am very happy with the quality of his services and very confident of any diagnosis that he makes relative to my care.
I never feel rushed or unimportant when I see Dr. Ho for my annual visit. He is thoughtful and a wonderful doctor.
He is great! Very thorough, would highly recommend.
