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.
Wilkes Barre, PA |
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.
