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.

Dr. Odou was kind, listened carefully, and explained thoroughly what he needed to do. Some doctors make you feel like they are way too busy to take the time - Dr. Odou is not that doctor. He helped me to feel both calm and confident in the plan, and I truly appreciate his time, knowledge, and care.
