Odette Gutiérrez del Arroyo, PA-C Bio
Odette is originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, but grew up “all over” due to her father serving in the US Air Force. Prior to joining the Revolution team, she worked as a medical provider in family medicine in both a private practice setting and for the Department of Defense at an Army military base. In addition to weight management and obesity medicine, Odette also provided annual in-home health assessments for Medicare patients, which she enjoyed very much!
During her time in primary care, Odette gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in treating and managing many chronic diseases including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and obesity, among many others. Her background in primary care, coupled with her 7 years as a group fitness instructor (ZUMBA and cycling), formed a unique and synergistic set of skills which fueled her interest in joining the Revolution team.
Odette strives to be a medical provider that encourages and empowers her patients to take charge of their health journey through education and knowledge, which she believes is the foundation to sustainable, long-term healthy lifestyle changes and outcomes.
As a bilingual provider, Odette loves being able to offer medical services in both English and Spanish. She understands that communicating about one’s health can be challenging, especially in a language that may not feel your own. She hopes to give all her patient’s the space to express themselves comfortably.
When not in clinic, you can find Odette exploring all the D.C. area has to offer with her husband, son, and dog. Additionally, she loves pursuing her passion for the performing arts by singing, dancing, and acting in Musical Theatre productions with local theaters. She hopes to meet you soon, and can’t wait to get started in helping you reach your health goals!
