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.

I was supposed to get a CT scan after I met with the doctor and they said that someone from the office would call. That was almost a week ago and no one has called I called today and was sent to a voicemail and no one ever returned the call. I really need the CT scan, so I can decide whether or not I'm going to get the surgery.

I met the surgeon for the first time.At my doctor's appointment and he scheduled me for surgery as soon as possible. Which thank God was the next day. And he was great, he walked through me everything with me. The people that had me, go get the blood work and all that. They were great. The doctor seeing me right there at the hospital. I seen him before surgery after surgery before I went home. He was a great doctor, and I so appreciate him and his staff. Thank you.
