Jo Ann Clark: In praise of a great doctor in Summit County

Jo Ann Clark

I would like the people of Summit County to know how fortunate we are to have a wonderful doctor such as Jodi Chambers.

Ten years ago, our son needed a parathyroid operation. We did not know anything about this condition, but after much research we found out that all of us have four parathyroids, and if one is “bad,” it will deplete your body of calcium. So we set out to find a surgeon. We spoke to two other surgeons, both were not sure if they could locate the diseased parathyroid. They said they would “poke around in there when he was in surgery.” Sometimes they can be very difficult to locate, although they are generally somewhere in the throat.

We then found Jodi in Denver, she was practicing at St. Anthony’s in Denver at the time. We walked in to her office and were greeted by her receptionist, who by the way told us that Jodi performed the exact surgery on her that our son needed. She was now happy and healthy.

Jodi told our son “I can help you, I will find and remove the problem,” and that she did. He has no scar on his throat and is healthy and doing well.

So thanks Jodi and welcome to Summit County!
