Working with Dr. O'Dell over the last 5 years has changed my life for the better. I'm 50 years old and have Cerebral Palsy. I started working with Dr. O'Dell summer of 2018. We started out with baclofen orally. Then, he said I was an excellent candidate for Intrathecal baclofen therapy. On February 27th 2018, I had surgery to install a baclofen pump. Since then my life has improved tremendously! Dr. is by far the BEST Dr. I've ever worked with!

I 100% recommend Dr. O’Dell if you need injections in your body. I had the injections in my leg after having a stroke. It is very helpful for uncurled my toes and also adjusting my stance. Without the Injections I end up walk on the other side of my foot on my pinky toes. Dr. O’Dell and the residents under him, work meticulously to make sure the injections are in the right spots with the help of an EMG. Dr. O’Dell makes me feel extremely comfortable and always asks appropriate questions and constantly making sure that I am okay with the pain level. He is very caring and will give additional recommendations if needed. He is very knowledgeable in physical rehabilitation matters.

Dr.O'Dell Is incredible. Not only has he taken great care of my health, but also he is lovely to speak with at every appointment. It’s rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touches and care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. I highly recommend becoming his patient!

Not impressed. No ideas. No solutions. Nice personality in lieu of no input is still not valuable.

I went to discuss options for treating post-stroke spasticity. Dr. O’Dell and his internist asked many questions to get to the heart of my stroke and subsequent experience. It was thorough and conversational. Dr. O’Dell is very engaging and left me with a good feeling that a positive course of care was being devised. I can not recommend him highly enough.

He seemed ok but clearly left me with no hope of my hand ever improving the slightest bit. He kept saying he’s sorry so many times it made the matter much worse. I didn’t come for pity, I came for help which there was none of. As a intensive coronary care nurse for 20 years, I can’t ever remember leaving any in-patient or out-patient with no hope let alone absolutely no hope as this Dr. O’Dell did to me.This area is of all places Cornell Rehabilitation yet clearly they screen what they those who deem as the untouchables. This was the second rehab doctor I saw in the same department. Both were terrible experiences. Go at your own risk.
