*Dr. Southam may seem very direct or cold AT FIRST, but she is doing her job and does it very well. She really is a very good people person after all, and had a good bedside manner in the end. Through this surgery and visits, all staff have been very professional & courteous.

I have been working with *Dr. Southam for a couple of years to address a shoulder issue/s. She really is an excellent physician/surgeon. She is always professional, competent, confident in her abilities and has a personable bedside manner. I have total confidence in her decision making and in her approach to my specific care. I would absolutely recommend her and am glad she is the person that has performed surgery on me.

Dr. Southam could be a little more approachable. On my first visit last fall I postponed my surgery because she was abrupt in her mannerisms and I wanted to inquire about other methods of treatment. However, the next time I met with her she was more approachable.

At 52 years old I have to have a total knee replacement. I had seen another surgeon (outside of Kaiser) and was not at all comfortable with him. After meeting with *Jodi I have 100% confidence with her and took forward to her performing my surgery.

Growing up with asthma gave me a lot of exposure to doctors' offices at an early age. It was those interactions, with wonderful physicians, that initially sparked my interest in medicine. It wasn't until medical school that I discovered orthopedics, which is my passion. With my family a short distance away, in Northern California, I couldn't be happier to have landed in the Portland/Vancouver area. Being outdoors keeps me grounded and I've found that this area fits my personality and interests perfectly.

About my practice

I have received specialty training in Orthopedic Sports Medicine. I love all aspects of my specialty from the challenge arthroscopic procedures to getting people back to the activities that they love. I also perform general orthopedic procedures, such as joint replacement, which keeps my practice well-rounded.

How I thrive

I mentally thrive by staying passionate about my work and by keeping up to date with the literature and new procedures in my field. Outside of work I physically thrive by running, hiking, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and biking. My newest interest is yoga, which has been a great stress manager both at work and home. Although I haven't had the opportunity to participate in overseas work recently, I have found operating in Honduras and Haiti to be two of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I hope to continue this type of volunteer work in the future.
