Eureka, CA |
I've seen a variety of mental health practitioners in Humboldt County over the last 15 years, so I feel comfortable saying Tanenhaus is one of the worst this area has to offer. I saw him for a mental exam scheduled by disability. I was very nervous during the interview, and he did nothing to help that. His bedside manner is awful, and at one point he rose his voice to the point of making me cry. Granted, I'm a crybaby to begin with, but for a mentally ill person, this experience was traumatic.
