After a few years of deliberating if i should have an upper lid blespharoplasty, I did research on Miami occuloplastic surgeons. Went to different consultations with other doctors and decided Dr. Tannenbaum was the right choice. Excellent consultation not only looking at the aesthetics but also how my visual acuity was (something no other occuloplastic surgeon even looked at). Put me at ease before the surgery. My results are natural, refreshed but still me! Thank you Dr. Tannenbaum!

I was very happy with my care. I had a 4 lid blepheroplasty. The consultation. Was detailed and allowed me to voice all concerns and questions. The results were fabulous and more than i hoped for! Immediately following the procedure, Dr Tannenbaum was attentive and the staff as well. I would totally recommend Dr Tannenbaum to anyone. In fact my husband is so pleased he considering returning to Dr Tannenbaum for his own procedure.

I am so lucky to have been referred to Dr. Tanenbaum. From my first visit on, he was to me like a long time friend. friendly, easy going, and a true professional. I had a droopy eye lid that was getting worse, and I was concerned about who to trust with this matter, Dr. Tanenbaum eased all my worries and the operation was a total success. Recovery Time was zero! Now both eyelids are at their normal level. Thank you Dr. Tanenbaum! you are the greatest! I am telling everybody about you!

Very nice, caring. I went in BEFORE my appointment time which these days is extremely unusual. Office is very pleasant and clean. He dedicated plenty of time to me, took many notes for the record, was very willing to answer any questions I had. He was not eager to push any unnecessary procedures. In fact, he dissuaded me from a procedure he thought I should wait longer to address.

Excellent experience. He did such a great job on my lower lids that when I had another type of surgery the following year, the anesthesiologist couldn't believe I'd had my eyes done. In addition he is super nice and professional. If you need eyelid surgery he's the man!

He came highly recommended by my ophthalmologist. He performed cosmetic upper eyelid surgery on me. He was kind, gentle, highly skilled and extremely competent. He did an excellent job, and I recommend him to everyone. Eyes are all he does, so he has true expertise. Wonderful doctor.
