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

Every visit for the last 6 months has been excellent, as for the office staff, nurses and Dr. Westhoff. I have been extremely pleased with every aspect of care I have received and would say that you have an excellent Dr. and I am happy I chose her.

Legacy Good Sam changed the date of the appointments but even though they gave me a copy of the next appointments they never mentioned it was on a different day. It would be nice to be told that.

I really like this provider. I am new to the area and this visit was to establish care. My only complaint is that I had to arrange getting my records sent to the office from my old provider and that the office did not request records. This was an additional hassle that should have been taken care of by Legacy, not me.

Ms Westhoff and the clinic staff were all friendly and professional. It was a pleasure to meet them. This was my first appointment with Ms Westhoff, but she is now my go-to gyn. medical provider. [details deleted to protect privacy] <br> and I wanted to stay with the same Legacy clinic after the 5-year cancer-free anniversary. Good decision.

From day 1, Dr. Westhoff was very professional and understanding. Always willing to answer even the simple questions. She even drew me a chart to explain some info. Dr. Westhoff's assistant was also very caring, calm and helpful the day of my surgery in Sept. Dr. Westhoff and her team made my experience very easy and stress free. My family also would like to thank Dr. Westhoff! Thank you!

Doctor Westhoff and her staff are top notch. I received excellent care. They all were kind, considerate, and very professional. I consider myself, and my family, very blessed to have had her as my physician. I highly recommend her for anyone needing treatment. Her PA, Elizabeth was equally as competent. Both of these providers made a tough situation much easier to manage for my family and myself.

I was seen by a NP and medical student during this visit for my 6 month oncology check. Dr. Westhoff though called me later in the day after I left the office to review information with me and to also congratulate me on my recent engagement. She is a competent, and compassionate doctor who has provided excellent care to me over the last almost 3 years since my diagnosis.
