FAQ

Am I a candidate for Dr. Duquette's Treatments?

Not all patients will be accepted into our program.  Dr. Duquette and his staff will determine if a patient is a candidate for care based on the initial consultation, examination and medical history.  If you reside outside of central Illinois or Bloomington llinois, you can still become a patient with minimal required office visits.

Do I need to stop taking my medications?

No, Dr. Duquette does not prescribe or un-prescribe medications.  When your condition improves, you may discuss stopping medications with the prescribing doctor as the need for treating the symptoms disappears.

Can my medical doctor order the tests?

Most medical doctors do not treat the functional causes of disease as we do.  They, therefore, would have little knowledge of and reason to order these specialized tests.

Will my insurance cover this care?

Functional Medicine is not covered by any insurance carrier.  An itemized statement of services can be used for tax deductions or HSA's.

How much do treatments cost?

It varies due to individual patient findings.  After a thorough review of your case, Dr. Duquette and his staff will determine the course of care for your specific needs and go over the time and cost with you prior to starting the program.  Initial consultation and office visit are always at no charge.
