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.

He told me exactly what my surgery involved and was very concerned about my well being. He knew I was in pain and tried to get the surgery scheduled as soon as possible. It was delayed until 1am but he still performed the surgery knowing that waiting would make it worse.
