After receiving his doctorate, he became an associate veterinarian in both clinical and emergency care.

- Bachelor of Science, Biology, Paterson University
- Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine
Has worked with all types of animals, including exotics, but he pursued both critical care and surgery simultaneously because he is drawn to both. Though his focus is surgery, he continues to develop his skills in critical care as well.
Because of moving internationally and putting in long hours as a surgery intern, Dr. Tessitore does not currently have any pets, but he grew up with mastiffs, cats and turtles and is very much looking forward to acquiring some animal family members soon.
