Dr. Brett C Odum has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

I switched to Dr. Odum after I saw how wonderfully he treated my elderly parents. My previous doctor just wanted to treat everything with a prescription , but Dr. O. is with me on finding out the cause of any disorder. He also seems to understand quite a lot and balances bedside manner with professionalism well. Seems caring and knowledgeable.
Dr. Odum is very friendly, and has a great bedside manner. He is serious when he needs to be, but also very funny. He puts you at ease during your visit, and treats you as if you are the most important part of his practice. The children love him, and so do adults. He is very intelligent. Put my 10 year old on a prescription for bedwetting, and he hasn't wet since being on it. Thank God for Dr. Brett Odum!!!
