    I left in tears. It was a terrible experience. My son had weird symptoms that I had questions about and when I called the nurse told me to bring him in to be seen. I did and not only did I have to wait for a VERY long time, the doctor didn't give me any answers as to what could possibly be wrong. His mannerisms and tone made me fee like he thought I was just overreacting. My son had a blister, I knew it'd heal but I was told to take him in. Now I have to pay for an office visit that I didn't actually need. It was a very hard and frustrating experience.

    I appreciate how he listens and doesn't act like I don't know what I'm talking about. It would be nice if he wrote down an history & reviewed it so I don't have to explain it every visit.

    we had a strep throat culture done, the results were negative but we were told a longer test which is more accurate would be done and they would call me the next day with the results. We never got a call. I'm assuming it was negative too but I wish they would have called with the results!

    Dr. Odell was great in the office as well as later when my baby was admitted. He was friendly, patient, and understanding. He explained things thoroughly, and didn't act inconvenienced, even though it was the weekend.

    We love Dr. Odell! We are going to be so sad when he retires in a few years!

    Thought he could've been more caring and personable.

    We were waiting a long time and wish we could've gotten in a lot sooner that day...I had called at 12 pm and we didn't get an appt until 5:15 pm....by the time we actually saw the dr it was close to 6 pm.

    I've had 5 children and [...] is my youngest - 1st time I have had this quality of a health team. From provider, nurse, care management and receptionist! So connected and supportive! Love portal - so helpful!

    it was a longer wait than normal in the waiting room, but to be fair I was a few minutes late. They let me know they were behind schedule and there would be a longer wait when I checked in, so I didn't mind.

    I called mid-afternoon with concerns about my daughter's cough/breathing and the clinic was full, but they scheduled me for the after-hours clinic offered. I didn't now that was offered - such a great resource for parents! Thanks!

    He was very good, but he's not my normal doctor.

    my daughter has seen Dr O'Dell since birth. while he's not always the easiest to get into, he's definitely a great doctor!

    Experienced on May 23, 2018

    We have been seeing Dr. Odell since my 26 year old daughter was 3. He is the best!
