Dr. Tihanyi has enjoyed her twenty-seven years in Salem taking care of women’s health and the welfare of their families. Having a private practice in family medicine in a small clinic setting has allowed for personalized care for all members of the family including the adults, adolescents, children and babies.


Her practice ranges from well child examinations and adult general exams to acute therapies for illnesses of all age groups.  She also enjoys performing minor surgical procedures involving the skin and some biopsies for diagnostic purposes.


Because of these interests, she often attends meetings on Women’s Health, general family medicine updates, and Gynecological seminars.  Although she stopped delivering babies after twenty-seven years of providing this service, she still enjoys looking after the Moms and their newborns after the delivery.



Serena was born and raised in Oregon. She attained her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at the Klamath Falls campus of Oregon Health Sciences University. 

Serena earned her Master of Science and Nurse Practitioner Certification from Western University of Health Sciences at the Pomona, California campus.  She is nationally certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

In her free time she enjoys hiking, traveling, reading, and spending time with her family and friends.

Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, Susi worked over twenty years as a registered nurse specializing in pediatric oncology, adult oncology, and home infusions. In her work in the hospital as well as the community, she has always had a passion for patient education and advocacy.
