Legacy Medical Group-Gynecologic Oncology

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.

Education:
Fellowship: UCSF / Stanford University
Medical School: Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Year I Started Practice: 2008
Hospitals Served: Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center, Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center, Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center

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

My experience with Dr. Westhoff and the entire team, coordinating it from the start to end was an excellent and smooth process with each step leading up to the surgery. This was my second but first major surgery and was very anxious about the whole idea of not knowing whether the outcome was at the end. I'm glad it was a positive result. There was a little set back during the healing phase and was alarmed by it, but remembered having team reviewing and explaining post-op symptoms and risks. I'm glad and appreciated the physician assistant being available to answer my questions and concerns during the wee hours of the morning that weekend. She even had me take pictures to send to her personal cell phone to evaluate my symptoms. Although, needing to follow up and reminding often with getting OFLA and other necessary forms to be completed, it did get done right away when called. Dr. Westhoff being in and out of the office, as she also works at another hospital during the week, I know they're a busy office. Dr. Westhoff is an experienced and knowledgeable surgeon with a great and sweet personality that makes you feel at ease.

Dr. Westhoff always explains issues in an understandable yet not simplistic way. When I have asked for them, she and her office have quickly provided me with legitimate reading resources so I don't have to go to Dr. Google. Everybody always answers my questions promptly through the MyHealth portal. Her staff are also friendly and knowledgeable and seem to be happy to work with her. Dr. Westhoff appears to be very engaged in her work, patients, and research.

Met with Physician assistant who works with Dr. Westhoff. I was very impressed with her knowledge and expertise. She explained everything very clearly. She listened to me and was respectful of my concerns asking questions to clarify any possible misinterpretations during our conversation. I felt that my concerns were respectfully acknowledged and that she was supportive in helping me determine the best plan of care for my needs.

I have liked and respected Dr. Westhoff since our first meeting. I appreciate her caring manner and how she listens and responds with answers that are appropriate to my questions (indicating I know that she has listened to me). She creates an atmosphere that make it easy to talk to her and let her know if I think particular treatments are working or not working. If something is not working, she will recommend something different. I'm so glad Dr. Westhoff is my Oncologist.

Dr Westhoff is extremely competent with a very kind bedside manner. She went out of her way to get me on her schedule as quickly as possible, performed my surgery right away and even took care of a biopsy I needed so I didn't have to return to the hospital the day after surgery. I would highly recommend this provider.

One small critique. The dr. had a medical student talk to me, While he provided clear information, my husband was in the room and he looked at my husband instead of me when relaying the information, which was off putting considering the nature of my appt.
