I switched to Dr. Tedesco for my third pregnancy and was so impressed by the differences that he and his staff provide. I felt like I was treated as an individual patient for all of my visits and needs. He delivered two of my children giving me directions and support throughout. I highly recommend him as well as the staff.

Switched to this office after having a horrible time with the obgyn associates in wilkes barre for my first pregnancy - could not rave any more about the entire office staff! Cathy, Kelly, Dr Tedesco - they have all provided exceptional care and have helped me tremendously with health issues and concerns during my pregnancy. Quick to get you in if you are having an issue, thorough and truly care about you!

Dr. Tedesco takes time with you, is personable, professional and really knows his stuff. It's not the most pleasant appointment for a woman to have and he makes you comfortable. Don't hesitate seeing Dr. Tedesco and I'm picky!

Terrible. This office sends you for tests and then doesn't contact you with the results for days later, but sends the results to your family doctor and they tell you about it. They really need help on their organizational skills and bedside manner.

He's terrible. His partner Ali and him couldn't be further opposites. Tedesco is rude and pushy, Ali is comforting and understanding, to put it bluntly.

At my first (and only) visit with this man he stood over me with his arms folded and tried to force me into a cervical exam. Who's gonna win here? is not something a Dr. should be saying to a patient. He was also going to strip my membranes WITHOUT using that terminology and without getting my consent, insisting that at 39 weeks, he gets things going. Disgusting. Arrogant. Bully.
