Dr Tannenbaum is very knowledgeable and professional! He has compassion towards his patients and his job. His staff is very friendly and checks up on you after procedures. I recommend his service to my family and everyone. I have had 3 procedures with him. All 3 procedures were successful because of him.

If I had written a review for Dr. Tannenbaum when I first started receiving care from him I would have given him and his staff 5 stars. I still think that he was the best doctor I had ever seen. However when I was going through the worst possible thing in my life and had missed a few appt. after never missing any before because I was going through one of the worst things a parent can go through which was explained. I was told we don't care why,we are dropping you. Let's just say that really hurt

J. Baye in LA – May 29, 2018
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.

Linda Lauland in Marrero, LA – Nov 01, 2017
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.
