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.
