About Us

After earning her M.D. from University of Washington Medical School, Elise Leland and her family moved to Vancouver for Elise’s residency training.  When she graduated in 2005, her husband, Ernie, encouraged her to open her own practice and joined her in doing so.  They took a crash course in medical billing, electronic medical records, and all the crazy, unique aspects of the medical business world, and opened Orchards Family Medicine on August 1, 2005. 

In the years that followed, staff was added and offices were changed.  In late 2013 we were able to upgrade our home and moved to our current location near the Vancouver Mall.  Here, we are able to offer our patients a homey comfortable environment while providing privacy and exceptional medical care.
