Dr. Leer and his family moved to Humboldt County in 1992. He has been a
member of Eureka Family Practice since 1994. In addition to his duties
at EFP, Dr. Leer was a member of the North Coast AIDS Project Board of
Directors through the 1990’s and briefly chaired the Board. He was

Dr. Leer’s wife, Nancy, teaches in the psychology department at Humboldt
State University and in her spare time lovingly tends to her beautiful
garden. Their daughter, Jane, grew up and left home much more quickly
than her parents were prepared to accept!
When not working Dr. Leer can either be found bicycling, fly fishing, or eating.
