Ratings for Dr. Odette L. Campbell
This is not a joke this doctor ruined my life and my sons life. the doctor prescribed the mother of my child and his grandmother methadone. she gave her 240 pills at each visit, i have the empty bottles to prove it. Now my son doesn't have a mom because she is addicted to the drug. This went on for a long time. my son's mom isn't a heroin addict, its sad that doctors can get away with this. i dont't know why the doctor would prescribe such and addictive drug to a 22 year old mother with no health problems. my sons mom and the doctor were friends outside of her work i think because she talked at one time about maybe going to work for the doctor. i can't believe this has happen, not sure what to do.
Dr.Campbell has seen me for over 2 year and always showed respect for everyone around her. She kept me from having to see doctor after doctor. I was sent to 4 different doctors before i ran across her and she was able to treat my needs without pushing me off to someone else and just taking my money. I applaud her for her effort, i would rather wait a while for one doc than go to several that couldn't help. She was always very professional and honest. Thanks Doc
when I called the off ice to conferm the appointment and to "check" to see if they were in my son's PPO plan we were told yes, BUT when my son got there they were not in his plan and he had waited "1 month" to get in. He had to call and get the rest of the money over the phone from me!! when I tried to explain this to"SHELIA" and tell her the situation and called my son "MY BABY" she then ask my son how old he was and made a VERY unkind remark about me calling my son my baby, yes he is 28, but he will always be my baby, and the office staff mislead us to believe that they were on our PPO plan when in fact they were not just on a PAR contract with BCBS. I want to talk to this doctor my self and tell her of the way I was treated on the phone when trying to explain to her office had told me that they WERE on the PPO list. I have yet to get ahold of her with the number I was given. We would have NEVER waited one month to see a doctor that is not on our plan, times are to hard.
Doctor has been treating me 2 yrs. - Explained therapy plan. Once I got on board, everything began working out as she told me it would. (Wish I'd listened to her sooner.) I am close to being taken off medication b/c her treatment plan worked. She also observed & removed cancerous skin growth there in office & was comforting to hear it was small enough to have caught in time, but if not we'll still keep a watch on it. -- Would not be fair to complain about delay in getting in to see her b/c I would have been out 30 min earlier had she not caught the cancer & taken immediate action. I delayed her 30 min. I'm guessing this thorough attention to patient care is what makes her late to other appts. But I'll trade a little wait time for excellent medical care. That is a very RARE thing to find w/ $ hungry doctors who want to get people in & out. Dr. Campbell wants to heal people. God Bless her. This woman has truly EARNED title of doctor.
I really enjoyed my visit to Dr. Campbell's office. Her staff was very nice and helpful. Dr. Campbell was pleasant and professional during my visit and made me feel completely comfortable. I really felt like she listened to me and understood my concerns. I am glad I chose her as my doctor!
BAD: It's true that Dr. Campbell has not perfected the art of "scheduling" patients & wait time is lengthy. -- GOOD: I told her on 1st appt. that I don't see Dr.'s & came b/c of a friend's concern for my health. Dr. let me lay MY ground rules (w/o taking offense),that I distrust modern medications b/c former job was in pharmacutical research; I did not want a Dr. w/ a "god complex" who will not listen to me (b/c I KNOW my body); I will hear her opinions, but I will make decisions about my treatment w/o her berating me. She listened empathetically to concerns. She agreed w/ me saying that she could work w/ me under those conditions. On 1st visit she managed to zero in on problems NEVER B4 checked by previous Dr.'s She suggested an aggressive treatment plan & why needed. I chose to go slow & she warned me of deadly symptoms to look 4. She was right! All happened as she predicted. She SAVED my life! (Right in her office.) Her plethora of medical knowledge is uncanny!
This doc was very rude to her staff and focused more on humiliating them than treating her patients, she was very unattentive and showed no concern for anyone but herself, she talked more about herself and bus than she did about the patients and the patients problems. In my opinion she should not be allowed to practice outside of a facility without supervision. She should be refunding more than half of the visit for the time that she spends talking about herself.
Took over 3.5 hrs in waiting rom with not lack of concern with this. She Always tells you her problems and the focus doesn't seem to be on her patients as once was. Doesn't seem to be good communication with staff. Staff very unknowlegeable. Always changing staff and talks alot about herself.
