Dr. Odom's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Odom "Practicing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy since 1997. Practicing weight loss medicine since 1995. Studied the Rouzier method of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for over 20 years."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Odom "My joy is helping people obtain optimal health regardless of their individual characteristics. I hope that my patients live a longer life span, but definitely to live stronger, with a longer "health span".

To achieve this goal, I use bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, autologous stem cell therapy, and lifestyle management, including the use of nutraceuticals.

At the present time, bio-identical hormone replacement and stem cell treatments are not conventional therapies.  I gladly practice restoration medicine because of the benefits to patients not obtainable from the mere prescription of pharmaceuticals. The reason that patients continue to seek unconventional health care is because such care may provide health benefits when conventional medical remedies simply do not work.

In the end, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is about the production and maintenance of health"

What People Say About Dr. David Odom, MD
Recommended supplements that are contraindicated for my condition when working for a different medical office. When he left his previous medical office, he must have taken my records with him, as I got a card in the mail looking for my business.
