Helping Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's, IBS, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Thyroid Conditions, Autoimmunity, and more.
Unlike conventional medicine, FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE, treats the underlying causes of disease, not the symptoms of disease or the disease itself. Medications and other medical procedures can only treat or "mask" the symptoms of disease, and do not address the actual causes of chronic disease. Functional Medicine doctors spend time with their patients, listening to their histories, looking at their environmental and lifestyle factors which may have a negative influenced on their health. Functional Medicine is not a "one size fits all" program, treatments are tailored to each individual and the specialized laboratory tests are able to scientifically pinpoint the exact causes of chronic illness and the treatment that is needed.
In this video, Dr. Duquette discusses Functional Medicine and how it has been the answer for many patients suffering with chronic health issues and lifestyle diseases such as Crohn's, IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Hashimoto's and other complex, chronic conditions.
After you submit our New Patient intake form, Dr. Duquette will review your case to determine if you are a candidate for our Functional Medicine program. If you are a candidate for care, he will then call you to discuss your case and go over the New Patient intake process.
If you have any questions or need help with your Intake form, feel free to call us at (217) 249-4808.

5 Starr Experience , went from headaches everyday for forty years to very few in three months. And new hope, now that I know pain free is possible. I can't begin to tell you what I've been through, never thought headache free was possible for me. I'm living a new life. Thanks Doc.
So I was diagnosed with M.S. in 2009. I was going down hill fast lately. Dr. Duquette and Kendra are the best giving you all the information you will need to get healthy and stay healthy. I am on the right track due to the Duquette's I give them so much love. The 2 hour drive is well worth it!

Dr. Duquette and his amazing staff get to the root of the issues and develop a lifestyle plan that alters the course of these dreaded diseases versus just masking symptoms. I still have a ways to go in the program, but it has absolutely changed my life! I couldn't be more thankful and appreciative that our paths crossed.
He and his staff have given me the tools to move ahead on my own, to listen to my body, and to look at health in an entirely new way. I am forever grateful and would recommend him to anyone.
I would recommend anyone with any health problem who lives in central Illinois see Dr. Duquette before they waste their time with any other doctor.
I feel like I have been given my life back :). My IBS symptoms are non-existent as long as I support my body with good, clean foods. I follow the tips provided in the program to focus on positive mental health, manage my stress, and have a better outlook on life. This has greatly reduced my anxiety, and I don't notice depression at all.
Dr Duquette has helped me learn what my body needs to be healthy. I was able to learn new patterns and behaviors through his guidance. He's very kind and easily accessible...always willing to talk/call you back to discuss concerns.
