As a college athlete in basketball and football, I know what it feels like firsthand to experience a variety of injuries. As a result, I chose an Orthopaedic surgery residency at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine, Bronx, New York. I was also for...

I've been going to Dr Tedder for 7 years. He was the only orthopedic doctor that would see me in the Tampa Bay Area when I fell at a fast food restaurant! He's the Best! His staff is great! Any time I need an appointment I never have a problem getting one!

I never actually saw the doctor only his assistant. She said the pain I'm in is in my head and I'm lying. She was very rude and rushed. She also admitted that she didn't know how to read the mri disc and said the radiologist couldn't make a mistake as he also treats the tampa bay rays. I would NEVER recommend anyone to this doctor. Only go there if you have an easy issue not one that requires a little effort and knowledge. You will NOT see the actual doctor.

I've been treating with this doctor for several years. His PA listens to my symptoms and gives me her undivided attention. I drive 52 miles to see Dr. Tedder. Always an excellent experience

I apologize if there were any confusion with you recent experience with our practice. It is normal protocol to have the x ray report faxed, emailed or delivered to our office so we may get the "Cliff Note" version of your injuries. However, we do not want to base our assessment on someone else's impression of these injuries. That is why we request the actual x ray films, so they may be reviewed. Films can not be faxed or emailed, they have to be delivered.

Called this morning to get an appointment but was told we need to review the report from the ER Doc before scheduling appointment. Okay, I get it. spent most of the day getting the films and report. Called back and spoke with a different person and said I have the report and film and will email over to you. Fax only i was told! don't have fax why can't i email it over? Don't have email, pushed and was told nurse only has email and she is away at a conference! seriously

this Dr. is extremely arrogant and if you aren't an NFL player you don't matter. He make tons of mistakes. Gave me a rx for the same pbysical therapy place after he had said he would reccommend i go to a different one. Gave me a rx for an MRI in st. Pete when he knew I lived in Tampa He in various ways tried to put me down and discourage me. insulted me by saying well you know you aren't an NFL player. in his book only NFL player physical abilities matter and mine obviously didn't in his book.

He didn't take my injury seriously.He just is a pill mill so he can charge your insurance more.He never went over my injuries with me. Avoid him.He is a waste of time.

Dtr. Jeffrey did two knee surgerys on me when my meniscus tore twice in my left knee. My primary dtr office became incorporated and they only preferred to refer their patients to a network of their doctors. When my MRI's showed i needed surgery, I immediately demanded Dtr. J. hands down. I would not trust anyone else to put me to sleep. Pre and Post-op care is the bomb handled by his right hand man Selena, she's been with him some 20 years and I love her. She's spontaneous and smart.

Dr. Tedder is by far the best surgeon in the Tampa Bay area, I tore my meniscus and I feel better than I did before the accident. Highly recommended doctor.
