After completing his medical training at UCLA (medical school, residency, and fellowship training) Dr. Donald Ho returned to the Bay Area, where he grew up , and resettled in San Mateo County. As the first critical-care trained pulmonologist at Peninsula Hospital, Dr. Ho initially focused his efforts to develop a hospital-based practice in pulmonary medicine. He became the ICU Medical Director at Peninsula Hospital in 1988, and continued at that capacity for the next 25+ years. He stepped-down as Medical Director, in 2016, to transition his medical practice primarily to the area of outpatient pulmonary medicine. His major interests includes asthma and infectious diseases of the lung with emphasis on early diagnosis and treatment in order to prevent hospitalizations and later complications. He is enjoying the different challenges of outpatient medicine. 

Dr. Ho's nonmedical interests includes photography and travels with his wife, family, and friends. A sample of his travel photography is on display in the office.
