Patient Comments (5)
in Marrero, LA |
Dr. Tanenbaum has always made me feel as though I'm A VIP as he does with all his patients. He goes an extra step to ensure his patients are doing fine. He takes time with his patients to ensure the fully understand everything. He reminds me of the country doctors that know the patients and their families. Although he has a busy practice, he makes time to call his patients and assist them in any way he can. It's not a coincidence that he's been in business over 30 years, he's a great physcian.

The staff at this office are rude and patronizing. They will also intentionally mislead their patients on the time for scheduled procedures. If you schedule yourself to be first, five others will also be told they are first. This is to ensure he makes as much money in a day as possible. Instead of first procedure you could end up fifth and delayed by hours. All the while you are kept in the waiting area with an arrogant and adversarial staff shouting commands.
Thank you for this review. We're saddened to hear your experience was less than exemplary, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

Dr. Tanenbaum got me in very quickly and took his time with me during my appointment. He was super nice and genuinely seemed to care about me and the reason why I was there to see him. His bed side manor is exactly what you want in any doctor. I would definitely recommend him!! His staff was very professional and nice. They even didn't hesitate to reprint my lab orders when I lost them. I have had nothing but a positive experience with Dr. Tanenbaum and his staff.
in Westwego, La |
