What Patients Say

"I find Dr. Langer to be very intelligent and she always treats me with respect. She is concisei n her manner which I find refreshing. She listens to what I have to say and offers up options and ideas. I am quite happy she is my physician." ---Healthgrades

"I have been seeing Dr Langer for over 6 years. She has been a source of comfort in treating my breast cancer and my separate lung cancer a year later. She directed me to all of the other doctors I needed for tests and surgeries and treatments. I don't know what I would have done if she had not been such a warm, and caring doctor. I have been blessed to have had her as my primary doctor in all of my care." --- Healthgrades

I always get wonderful treatment with Dr. Langer and her staff. This last time I visited the new campus down in Tigard and it was beautiful although farther for me to drive when compared to the old campus near St. V's. COVID protocol was well implemented and I felt safe. Although I normally get a blood draw before I see Dr. Langer at my annual appointments, but that was not done this time, maybe due to COVID? Overall, I highly recommend this clinic to any of my friends that enter a cancer journey. – Healthgrades
