Dr. Odou derives great satisfaction from general surgery because, he says, “Patients are usually cured of their problems.” The product of a medical family, Dr. Odou credits his father with inspiring him to become a physician, saying “My dad was a great doctor.” He finds medical practice to be intellectually rewarding and challenging.  Dr. Odou says that his patients might be surprised to hear that he comes from a family of six children and he has six children of his own. The avid cyclist likes to bike to work from his home in Huntington Beach.

The doctor was friendly and professional. I felt like I was talking to a friend and I felt like I was in good hands and I could trust my health with this person. He was so kind and said that he could schedule my surgery when I was already having another procedure done and he'd work around whatever was best for me. So that's all. I think he's awesome and I wish that more people were like him in the world. Alright. Thanks. Bye.

Hi, I'm very happy is Mark Odou and he's very....he takes his time, he's never in a hurry to listen to what I have to say what's wrong with me and then, he goes over it with me and explains it to me very well. So, I've had him before and I changed insurances and then I changed back to get him because he wasn't in the network, but I am very happy with him. Very good doctor. Thank you.
