    Outstanding! Dr. Munroe is direct, understandable, kind, thorough and not rushed.

  • Mar 09, 2019

    I have a complex trauma history, and I have a really hard time even going to my appointments, because they are so triggering. Dr. Munro is the only doctor I've ever had who hears me and honors what I need to make the appointments bearable. She is gentle and empathetic. She also is patient and explains things in a way that is palatable for me to understand. I feel so grateful to have her as my doctor.

  • Mar 06, 2019

    Yes, I've only met with her once, she did seem very professional and knowledgeable but I don't know enough about it yet to give her a better rate at this point.

  • Feb 18, 2019

    Excellent staff and service. Everyone was very helpful and friendly.As in past visits, once on campus, figuring out where to go and how to get there was a challenge. The posted maps are of little use. I was glad I knew where to park from previous visits.… and I'm usually good with this sort of thing!

  • Dec 16, 2018

    My experience with Dr. Munro is only the best possible. I don't I think I was very fortunate to have her as my position and still have her as my oncologist. I am completely completely satisfied and very comfortable with any treatment that she wants to do.

  • Dec 01, 2018

    I was very appreciative the whole staff and doctors. They were right on top of things. Thank you for that. Bye.

  • Nov 10, 2018

    Dr. Munro took her time as she explained the nature and potential consequences of my cancer. She patiently responded to each of my questions. Her staff members were equally attentive to my concerns. The questions they asked were of a medical nature, of course, but also addressed my fears and emotional responses to my diagnosis. I feel confident about the capability of each person I interacted with and especially about the capability of Dr. Munro as my surgeon.

  • Nov 10, 2018

    She has been my oncologist for 7 years and has a good bedside manner and is professional

    Yes, Dr. Monroe was excellent. She communicated very well. We accomplished everything we wanted to in our appointment and I would recommend her in a future. Thank you.

  • Sep 30, 2018

    She was really nice

  • Sep 29, 2018

    Was professionally done. Not a lot of detail as to degree of healing. Concerned she didnt have info from Cancer Center in McMinnville. Want to know there is close communication with my treatment.

  • Aug 03, 2018

    Dr. Munro is kind, compassionate and straight-forward with regard to what's happening and recommendations for how to proceed, but she's not so rigid that she overrides your own ability to be responsible for your condition. My experience is one of partnership and understanding as I work through a difficult prognosis and the decisions that I have to make. That is invaluable to me.

  • Jul 14, 2018

    My provider Elizabeth Monroe is a great doctor as far as I can see she always treated me well and ask me to call if anything is wrong. Thank you.

    Dr. Munro and her staff are wonderful.

  • Apr 18, 2018

    Dr. Munro is very personable and approachable. She takes her time to listen to our concerns and is an excellent provider.

  • Apr 03, 2018

    I hope no one I care about needs a recommendation for a gynecological oncologist, but certainly if they did I would recommend Dr. Munro.

  • Feb 02, 2018

    Dr Munro, Lisa Egan, Suzanne, Tori and the entire staff at the Women's Health Center are incredible. They are always kind from the heart and very professional I am so lucky to be a patient at OHSU.
