I went to the trouble of an appointment with Tannebaum. He did do an exam, but he's a man of few words. I waited for him in the treatment room longer than the few minutes he saw me. He referred me to another MD who, per internet site, looks like he just graduated high school. Like Tannebaum, my age is early 70's. He hands me over to a MD who could be my grandson. If Tannebaum no longer practices, why is he taking patients?? My condition will go untreated and his bill will go unpaid,

Dr. Tannebaum was brusque, quick and did not really take the time to answer my questions. However, his medical advise wasn't unsound so far as I could tell, and he wasn't horrible. I am seeking second opinion however.

I was referred to Dr. Tannenbaum by my primary care doctor to remove my gallbladder. First visit lasted 5min, we scheduled day and time of surgery. Day of surgery talked with doctor 2min. Surgery went very well, very, very happy with him and my healing time was amazingly quick. However, he is NOT a talker, does not give you a lot of warm fuzzy feelings before or after surgery. Not rude but not talkative at all. But the most important thing that really mattered to me was the surgery went well
