What People Say About Dr. Chester Oddis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

No bedside manner and had a cocky attitude. Seemed lazy. 2 visits and never did an exam but was able to say I had no rashes or arthritic deformities. I have both rash and deformed fingers but he never looked. Went to him because he was highly recommended but I have no idea why. I will definitely be looking elsewhere.

Very dismissive. He refused to treat my condition and told me to get another opinion. I can understand a doctor recommending a second opinion after all else fails, but this was my second visit with him. Would not recommend.

Not sure how Dr Oddis only had 3 stars. Considering his stature in the area and the fact that 1 year later all of my doctors in different states are still referring to his observations and notes I would think he would be a Top Doc!
