“I decided on oncology while completing internal medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. My first patient was a young Navy Seal with mesothelioma. He and his family met with Dr. Thomas Lynch, a renowned expert in lung cancer. Dr. Lynch immediately put everyone at ease and made it clear that he would take the best care possible of this young man, both emotionally and physically. I knew by the end of that young man’s visit that cancer care was right for me.”Natasha Tiffany, MD

Natsha Tiffany grew up in Portland where she was active in encouraging young women to enter scientific careers as a student member of the board at the Saturday Academy — a local organization providing extra-curricular science courses and research opportunities for middle and high school students. Dr. Tiffany would go on to graduate from Oberlin College in neuroscience and Oberlin Conservatory of Music in piano performance.

During her medical training, Dr. Tiffany was active in medical research and co-authored six papers published in medical journals. She’s been working in Salem since 2004 and has been a partner at Oregon Oncology Specialists since 2005.

Active in the community, she has served on the Board of Directors for the Mid-Valley Independent Physician’s Association, Willamette Clinical Research, and Abiqua Academy. Dr. Tiffany is also an active member of the Salem Cancer Institute where she has served as the Chair of the Thoracic Committee, Vice-Chair of the Breast Cancer Committee, and as Tumor Board Chair. She is an active member of the Cancer Committee and frequently lectures at local oncology symposiums.

“As an oncologist, I have been honored to develop bonds with patients and families that last a lifetime. I have enjoyed the breathtaking developments and rapid advances in scientific research that have dramatically improved how we care for patients. I can’t imagine a more rewarding career, working each day to help patients and families with compassion, making their journey just a little easier.”Natasha Tiffany, MD

Each year, Dr. Tiffany attends multiple conferences highlighting clinical advances, from the San Antonio Breast Cancer Conference to the annual meetings of the American Society of Medical Oncology and the American Society of Hematology. She is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Southwest Oncology Group and the Marion-Polk County Medical Society.

Dr. Tiffany enjoys playing the piano, hiking, and spending time with her family. She and her husband Geoff have two children (plus two black labs and two cats). She believes firmly in the importance of education and continues to encourage young people to choose scientific and medical careers.
