About Me:

Trained at the nation’s finest medical institutions, Dr. Westhoff is a thoughtful physician with advanced surgical skills. She graduated AOA from Hopkins, received the resident research award at OHSU, and completed her fellowship in gynecologic oncology at UCSF/Stanford's highly respected joint program. There, Dr. Westhoff gained expertise in the surgical and clinical care of patients with a variety of gynecologic cancers. She is focused on continuing her work to improve the standard of care through the use of minimally invasive surgical methods and Enhanced Recovery After Surgery pathways. Dr. Westhoff is highly regarded by previous patients for her warmth and compassion. Her humility is a reflection of the values she learned growing up in a small farm community and her time teaching middle school science. Her commitment to service for others includes traveling to Ethiopia to perform prolapse surgeries and developing an after school anatomy class for at-risk youth.

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Dr. Westhoff was fantastic. She listened to what I was saying as well as what I wasn't saying. She explained everything in easy to understand terms. She addressed all my questions and concerns in an informative manner. She answered all my husband's questions as well. The PA was also very informative, in regards to what I could expect when the doctor came in for the appointment. The medical assistant was also top notch. Everyone made me feel less anxious, considering the reason for my visit.

My visit with Dr.Westhoff was very thorough. She explained to me the genetic testing I could have done because of cancer on my mother's side of the family. With information I gave previously, in an online survey, she gave me the % of risk I have to possibly get breast cancer. this was all very informative.

I've been seeing Evonne Kandas, a Gyn-Onc NP for nine years and I have always found her to be highly skilled, knowledgable and kind. This visit I saw Evonne with Dr. Westoff. Again, Dr. Westhoff answered all my qeustions, explained a new finding and made sure I knew exactly what was going on. I found Dr. Westhoff to be highly skilled, knowledgeable and with an enviable bedside manner. I sincerely hope that young interns and residents can take her lead because she is an exceptional MD.

I did the electronic check-in and it did not cross to the doctor's side, so I spent double the time answering the same set of questions.

I was referred to Doctor Westhoff after an visit to the ER. It was discovered I had very large mass growing from my ovary. As you can imagine this was very frightening. Dr. Westhoff put my fears to rest by her caring, professional personality. I knew I was in excellent hands after my first visit. I was scheduled for surgery. Dr. Westhoff explained in terms I could understand, what would transpire from A-Z. The surgery went very well and upon my follow up visit, we had a green light!

I would strongly encourage any provider to not be overly upbeat when outlining possible diagnoses. Having hope suddenly taken away when it turns out to be potentially fatal is utterly devastating to family and friends who'd been feeling hopeful , and of course the patient. I was told not to be deslondent because this was very likely benign, or something borderline...Then I was told that I had late stage cancer. Then I was cheerfully by several people told that chemo wouldnt be as bad as I feared...and its been far far worse. The psychological toll has been great on us all. Part of this is to be expected of course but we might have benefited from more realistic early speculation and communication. My interactions with this clinic have otherwise been nearly faultless. Dr Westhoff and her staff are, to a person, amazing and compassionate.

I came in to start [treatment deleted] and that did not happen due to the staff at OHSU so I was shifted over to Westhoff's office where I waited about an hour. Westhoff said she was working on getting me started on a [treatment deleted] where they should have done at there fellow teammates on the other side in the first place. I can't go to Good Sam Legacy one time for one visit and have everything run smoothly. I'm supposed to be at the hospital on Monday [date deleted] for my [treatment deleted] that takes 4 hours and be at Westhoff's office at 8:30 a.m. How can I be 2 places at one time? That is their scheduling that I have to call about tomorrow. Just one more thing.
