Dr. Tedesco came to Oklahoma in 2012 and opened his practice in January of 2013 in Muskogee. The question most often asked Dr. Tedesco is why he chose to continue his career in McAlester, Oklahoma. For him, the answer is simple….it’s the people! While opportunities were available to him all around the country, he fell in love with Oklahomans and the heartland. This is where he chose to put down roots and build his practice. This is home.
