Biographical Info

Dr. Elizabeth (Russell) Orth, ND grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts in the small town of Sandwich. Living on the Cape taught her the joys of being a part of a close knit community including having a strong physician-patient bond with her doctor. Her early experiences began Dr. Orth’s initial inspiration to study medicine from a holistic and patient-centered lens.

While attending Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, Dr. Orth passionately pursued experiences that widened her understanding of practicing medicine and that would increase her knowledge of both the arts and sciences (leading her to Major in Classical Studies and Minor in Chemistry, while on the Pre-Medical Track). During these undergraduate years, Dr. Orth attended Summer Internships at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts as well as traveled overseas to the Gremaltes Hospital in Chennai, India to participate in a Summer Internship that explored the practice of medicine outside of the United States. Such experiences led her to become more dedicated to the need to develop the physician-patient bond and increase patient education regarding their own healthcare. However, she still felt that there was something missing.

Soon after these experiences, Dr. Orth serendipitously came to meet with a “different type of doctor” on the Cape. This doctor spent more time with her patients, helped empower her patients through educating them, worked with the patient in order to alleviate the root causes of illness instead of just addressing symptoms, and genuinely loved practicing medicine. Upon discovering that this doctor was a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Orth researched Naturopathic Medicine and realized that was her calling. She discovered that Bastyr University in Washington State had a strong emphasis in both the art and the science of practicing medicine and decided to pursue her Naturopathic Medical School training there.

Dr. Orth is a licensed physician in Washington State. She is a member of both the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

Prior to joining Tree of Health Integrative Medicine, Dr. Orth practiced as a Naturopathic Physician in Snohomish and as an Intern Naturopathic Physician in Bothell. She is passionate about providing quality primary care, education and support to patients at every stage of life. She has expertise in working with chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, stress and allergies. In addition to seeing patients at Tree of Health Integrative Medicine, she teaches classes on various health topics through Evergreen Hospital.

In her free time she enjoys hiking, attending plays and shows and singing. She lives in Kirkland with her husband and cat.
