"It was an easy decision for me to choose to pursue medicine," says Curtis Oddo, M.D. "I always loved science. I always liked helping people and I am very child-like by nature." In his practice, Dr. Oddo likes to emphasize complete health. "I want my patients to be healthy now and in the future. I work with my families to find the best way to achieve the best possible health for their child."
As a medical provider, Dr. Oddo believes his most important role is to provide the best recommendations possible for families to guide the health of their children. "To use medical research, my wisdom and experience guide families to the best decisions possible for their children."
After earning his medical degree from the University of Illinois-Peoria School of Medicine, Dr. Oddo completed his internship and residency at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Dr. Oddo also served eight years as medical director of Jackson County Children's Advocacy Center. He is board certified in pediatrics.
