Dr. Tedder was born and raised in Harriman, TN, about one hour from Soddy-Daisy. He moved to Chattanooga with his wife 5 years ago as a medical student and has been enjoying Chattanooga ever since.
Prior to going to medical school, Dr. Tedder attended college at Carson Newman University in Jefferson City, TN, and then went on to Medical School at the University of Tennessee. He has a passion for helping people locally, but enjoys global outreach as well. He has traveled to both South America and Africa for medical missions and plans to incorporate this into his future practice of medicine.
Dr. Tedder believes each patient has a unique perspective that should be considered in making healthcare decisions. Working as a team where patient and provider cooperate to reach a common goal gives the best chance for positive health outcomes.
