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

I often feel rushed during all of my appointments at Legacy. My doctors seem very competent, but do not seem to have the time or the skill for patient-focused care. I am interrupted sometimes or feel rushed to get out questions that are important to me.

Dr Westhoff is amazing. Absolutely love her and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. That said, I really hope I don't have to. She is my cancer gynocologist. She saw me thru chemo, radiation and now we're working on the five year post cancer follow-ups.

The gal that initially saw me and took my vitals, etc. Was new but she did a good job. The woman that performed the exam was very good and made me feel at ease.

This was my first appointment with Dr Westhoff. She took as long as I needed to discuss treatment for my ovarian cancer. She was very respectful and kind as was her PA and everyone else I dealt with in the office.

She found something new in my genitals. But, the office was so hard to schedule with. They set 1 appt. & then got an earlier one but never did things right off. Kept putting me on hold & calling back. Seemed like they didn't know how to set appointments.

Dr. Westhoff is my chemo doctor. I saw her every 3 weeks during that procedure and will continue to see her quarterly for 2 years - then twice per year for 3 years. She's most excellent!

Dr. Westhoff is most excellent. The only downside is my reason for being in her care. She operated on me (hysterectomy) and is treating me for uterine cancer. I have absolutely no complaints and would not hesitate to recommend her.

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.
