Had horrible bedside manner and tried to tell my spouse they have No reason to have a feeding tube when the feeding tube was last hope for them. Never gave test results had to get them from a nurse. Then tried to say well staying in the hospital that they weren’t taking there medication. How do you not take medication in a hospital? Absolutely no help and have to get another opinion.

Dr. Odom is a remarkable professional and gentle physician; his kindness and sensitivity compliment his medical skills and seamless approach; that we are each valued human beings sharing our humanity; regardless, of status, education or any difference; other than we are each unique creatures. Dr. Odom is a highly experienced well-educated physician, offering forty some years as both physician and ongoing scholar in several specialized areas; within which his research in Digestive & Hepatic Disorders are well-documented. His immediate and kind bedside manner proves both comforting and reassuring to we patients. he listens intently, asks questions, answers and explains patiently so one never feels rushed. Too, I have heard and noted hospital nursing, doctors and auxillary staff express praise, respect and fondness toward Dr. Odom- including his wonderful and gracious office staff.

Dr. Odom is a very nice man, but I wouldn't recommend him for an urgent medical problem. You have to make an appointment to receive test results; you can't get them over the phone or electronically. I had to wait 30 minutes in my last appointment and he didn't even acknowledge or apologize for making me wait. When you have intestinal problems you want to feel a sense of urgency and convenience from your doctor. Dr. Odom is old school in the way he treats his patients.
