For Tanaya Foster, it is a privilege to take care patients. Tanaya has worked in both inpatient hospital and outpatient physician office settings since 2001 including work at both North Carolina Heart & Vascular and Wake Heart Research as well as WakeMed Heart & Vascular Physicians practices. She joined Duke University Medical Center in April 2017 and finds herself back at the WakeMed Heart Center, via the Heart Care Plus+ collaborative, working closely with advanced heart failure patients.

Tanaya is married and has a daughter. They enjoy spending time and traveling with family and friends. Tanaya also practices what she preaches in the office by staying active with exercise (she enjoys interval training and kickboxing to help de-stress) and eating a well-balanced diet. “I want my daughter to understand the importance of exercise and eating well that will lead to a healthier life.”

Care Philosophy
Patients and their families put their trust in us to make the right decisions for them and their loved ones. They deserve to be heard and treated with dignity and respect. Patient education is just as important as the medications we prescribe. As a physician assistant I enjoy working collaboratively with our physicians in developing a plan of care and taking the time to educate. This allows us to build relationships with patients and their families. It is a privilege to be able to work in this profession.
