Dr. Alice Y Ho has the following 2 specialties
- Radiation Oncology
A radiation oncologist is a physician who specializes in the use of nuclear medicine in diagnosing and treating cancer in a patient.
These doctors work in concert with other cancer specialists in order to determine the best form of treatment for a specific patient. Radiation oncologists are in charge of determining the correct dose of radiation to be used in treatments like radiotherapy and chemotherapy, as well as the appropriate amount of time that radiation should be administered in order to maximize the therapeutic benefits.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

I find the negative comments about this physician on this site to be very suspect. I spent part of my career evaluating medical practices in studies for the National Academy of Sciences. This one is of the absolute highest quality. She and her resident, Dr. Robert Samstein, were wonderful. They had done their homework on my wife's medical history and were clear, complete, concise, respectful and caring in spending a considerable time explaining our options and their recommendations for radiation oncology treatment. She went out of her way to research at our request a very high quality radiation oncology breast specialist near our home in Virginia. That physician had practiced at Sloan before relocating. As for the online complaints that she is not a good radiation oncologist. At Sloan Kettering. Really? Such opinions are completely without merit. We highly recommend her.
