Doctor Odom performed my acessa surgery for fibroids. He made me feel very comfortable and made sure I was informed of everything. I had surgery in May 2019 and August of 2019 my fibroids are almost gone. I saw a difference with my cycle in August as well. This surgery was the best decision I’ve made.

Professionalism and expertise at its finest, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Odom! In July 2019, I had the myomectomy procedure. Prior to visiting Dr. Odom I saw 2 additional OB/GYN who only gave me one "OPTION". In seeking a third opinion I found Dr. Odom whom gave me OPTIONS! Dr. Odom took the necessary steps to ensure I was a candidate for his recommendations including sending me for a MRI; no other doctor took the time to take those steps before. Dr. Odom was able to pinpoint and explain what would happen before and after the surgery including I would feel like a new woman! He performed a successful surgery and I feel AMAZING! My surgery was 2 hours longer than planned because he took his time to ensure all remained as planned. I am simply grateful for Dr.Odom, and because of him I now have my healthy uterus again! Thanks to Dr. Odom and his staff for the follow-up and the wonderful card I received after my procedure! Trust me you cannot go wrong with Dr. Odom!

While he was a good doctor, he did not believe me when I told my symptoms of early labor. And the nurses had to call him twice and let him know that on the next PUSH the baby would be here. But overall, he was really great. Oh and he forgot to numb my whole vagina while sewing me up from a first degree tear, so I felt quit a few pinches.

Dr. Odom and his staff, both at his office and the surgery center, are absolutely amazing! They have taken such great care of me during the last couple of years. He has gone above and beyond with his care, to calling me back personally to answer questions and checking on me personally the instant I got out of post op recovery!! He is kind and informative and all around a wonderful doctor to trust with your health!!

I had my uterine fibroids removed and the surgery went very well. I stayed in the hospital overnight. The scaring was minimal. My stomach muscles was sore for about 4 days, after that I could move around with minimal help. I would definitely recommend Dr.Odom for this surgery.

Dr. Odom is awesome and very friendly ! I first met him 10 years ago and he performed a myomectomy due to fibroids. This surgery went well and i healed with no problem. Unfortunately fibroid sufferrers will experience new ones. I went to him again in June 2018 and he discussed all options with me so that I could make the best decision. I chose to have a hysterectomy. He was able to do it robotically which was a blessing and so far so good, feeling like i will have my life back.

Dr. Odom is an experienced physician with great bedside manners. I have fear and become extremely anxious at doctor appointments. He is able to calm my nerves and assure me that it's nothing to worry about. I've been with him and Nurse Donna for about 10 years now and will travel 30 minutes away just to see them. Out of my four c- sections his office has done extremely well with 2 of my surgeries(2 of them were with another practice). Great practice even better doctor.

Dr. Odom is a Blessing to me. I was told by some other women that my kind of surgery would be painful & bloody; however, they all assured me that it was totally worth it. Dr. Odom performed my surgery and I have very minimal scarring & pain, and I did not see a single drop of blood. His work is thorough, he has great bedside manner, and he addressed all of my concerns.
