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 is very genuine and thoughtful. She cares about her patients daily lives yet gives gentle reminders about maintaining good health with routine health checks. I would recommend her to anyone in need of her specialized service.

I was referred by [location removed] for genetic testing. The blood draw was done at this appointment; I have an appointment to discuss the results when they are back. Dr. Westhoff is outstanding - knowledgeable, clear, pleasant and understanding. She appears to be all I want in a physician. I no longer live in [location removed], and at this time would like to transfer much of my care to Legacy providers.

I always want to know every tiny detail of pre-op, surgery, & post-op. Dr. Westhoff spent at least an hour with me on two visits (hour each time) listening to my concerns and answering ALL my many questions. She was very calming, reassuring and understanding. I could write a full page of praise for her. My favorite doctor in [age removed] years! I thank God she's my surgeon.

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.
