Care Philosophy

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 Einstein Hospital in New York. I was also fortunate to work with two of the top sports medicine surgeons in the country, Dr. Andrews and Dr. Clancy. This combination has provided me with special insight into sports injuries that I have been able to share with my patients. MISSION STATEMENT: Our primary objective is to treat each patient with cutting-edge, 21st century orthopaedic medical care combined with old-fashioned kindness and concern for each individual.Read more

St Petersburg, FL |
Worst doctor and staff that I know. I was waiting in the office over two hours to see Dr.Tedder he just showed up for one minute and disappeared. At the next appointment you don't see him at all. He is very rude and he is not the person who wants to talk with patients. The staff is unorganized and clueless, I had a over payment that was due back to me and it took 2 months to finally get the money back even though I called every week and got the same run around.
in Aurora, IL |
Dr. Tedder has terrible bedside manner. He and his staff did NOT tell me I had bulging disks and a few other injuries. Yes, believe it or not I left his office NOT knowing of these injuries. I learned of them from my Chiropractor upon my first visit when he read the MRI report to me. I called Tedder's office and talked to a nurse w/ an awful attitude and she did not apologize. Tedder did NOT review my MRI before my visit. He came into the room and asked his assistants what the MRI showed,
in St Petersburg, FL |
I had a terrible experience with Dr. Tedder and his office. I have a chronic ankle problem, and waited for a year before finally going to an orthopedic surgeon. I waited 2 hours, and was seen by Dr. Tedder for approximately 5 minutes. I gave him my MRI to have read. He informed me that his buddy at Duke is a radiologist and would look at the MRI. That was 2 weeks ago to the day. I have not heard a work from the office. Last week I called about the report and was told that it wasn't read yet.
in Riverview, FL |
I had surgery on September 29th, 2016 & their staff was very professional & courteous. It has been 5 weeks since my surgery & my left knee feels great, actually better than I anticipated. I strongly recommend Dr. Tedder. W. Gonzalez
in St Petersburg, FL |
Called office for guidance in dealing with medical issue needing urgent care instructions. Office person first misinterpeted reason for call, then told me she would call me back after speaking w/Dr. Tedder. She made it clear I was a nuisance. Went to my GP who rec another doctor. Ended up in ER before could be seen, and after xray, determined I had an infection and received appropriate care which helped within a couple of days. Dr. Tedder's office never did return my call for help. No time.

in Tampa FL |
