Dr. Garry Ho is a sports medicine specialist. He chose the specialty of sports medicine because it combines two things that he loves – the fascinating intricacies of how the human body and musculoskeletal anatomy work and the intellectual stimulation this brings; and the joy of working with people – as a team – to achieve their health care goals. Dr. Ho also considers anyone with a body an athlete – every patient he sees is either a past, current, future, or potential athlete. In his free time, Dr. Ho enjoys traveling, spending time with his wife and children, and exercising, especially in martial arts.

Bio

Dr. Ho chose the specialty of sports medicine because it combines two things that he loves – the fascinating intricacies of how the human body and musculoskeletal anatomy work and the intellectual stimulation this brings; and the joy of working with people – as a team – to achieve their health care goals. Dr. Ho considers anyone with a body an athlete – every patient he sees is either a past, current, future, or potential athlete.

Dr. Ho sees the practice of medicine and the care of patients as collectively both an art and a science. Through open, honest communication, creativity – and a drive to educate, inform, and guide – the relationship the physician fosters with both the individual patient and the community tempers the hard, cold facts and evidence provided by the latest research. All this is aimed at helping people accomplish their personal healthcare goals.

In his free time, Dr. Ho enjoys traveling, spending time with his wife and children, and exercising. He particularly enjoys martial arts – having studied Traditional Japanese Karate for most of his life – and a myriad of outdoor activities, including camping, hiking, in-line skating, mountain biking, and tactical sports. He also enjoys the teaching and learning process in general, and is grateful for the many opportunities he has to apply this in both his personal and professional interests.
