Most of my time was spent with the nurse practioner and Dr. Odell spoke to me for a few minutes. I did not have any chronic illness or sickness going into my appointment. However, my lab tests were interpreted by the office and discussed with me, all my questions were answered, and I came away equipped with new information and better ways to manage my health. Overall, it was a terrific visit.
