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.

This surgeon was patient and listened to my questions... although I didn't always know what to ask. He came to see how I was doing in followup just as he said he would, three different times and did not rush or ignore my feelings after surgery. He is compassionate and empowers the patient which made it easier to move forward with my needed surgery.
