Find out what makes Dr. Tanita a special part of the team here at Henderson Women’s Care.

A Passion for Helping

When you ask Dr. Tanita why he became a doctor, he’ll smile and tell you it is all about helping. The answer may sound cliché, but it remains at the heart of why Dr. Tanita is passionate about healthcare. 

He loves sharing life-changing moments with his patients. Guiding women through their first pregnancies, teaching patients to manage complex medical issues, and helping women to feel healthy and beautiful at every stage of life are some of Dr. Tanita’s favorite parts of being a doctor.

Your Partner in Life’s Special Moments

Dr. Tanita still remembers the first baby he delivered during his medical residency. Initially, he had planned on practicing medicine as a family doctor, but when he delivered that first baby, he was blown away. The arrival of new life was such a special moment for the patient and her family. Being there and playing an essential role in the successful delivery was a defining moment for Dr. Tanita. When he delivered his second baby, he knew that he would become an ob-gyn. No other medical specialty even came close for Dr. Tanita.  

Life is filled with special moments, and as an ob-gyn, Dr. Tanita is there to help you navigate many of them. From fertility counseling to birth control, pregnancy to menopause, your ob-gyn is with you through life’s many changes and transitions. Dr. Tanita looks forward to providing compassionate and caring medical care through every stage of life. 

Committed to Superior Patient Care

Henderson Women’s Care isn’t your typical ob-gyn practice. From our very beginning, we have been passionate about making women’s healthcare more accessible and approachable. Our practice was designed with the patient’s needs at the front of the experience

As you meet with Dr. Tanita, you’ll notice that he takes his time. He wants you to understand your options and is willing to spend an extra few minutes answering questions and explaining options and procedures in depth. Dr. Tanita will always share his recommendations and advice, but he knows that only the patient can choose the best path forward. He guides and advises so you can make an informed decision about your medical care.
