Doug Lanoue, MD, provides family practice medicine with a focus on maternity care as well as non-narcotic pain management, including the use of steroid injections, particularly for SI joint and facet injections, to help relieve pain caused by inflamed nerves. 

Dr.  Lanoue completed his undergraduate studies at Monmouth College, medical training at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford and residency at Mercy Family Medicine in Des Moines, Iowa. 

After completing his education Dr. Lanoue was on his way to finding his niche in rural family healthcare. Referred to by patients as "Dr. Doug", he has established himself in family practice medicine in order to care for patients of all ages. From wellness and prevention to the treatment of chronic and acute illness, Dr. Lanoue’s scope of practice also includes maternity care, a service for which he prepared through a fellowship in Maternal Child Health in Oak Park, Illinois.


Dr. Lanoue, certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, chose to practice Family Practice medicine after learning more about the need for rural doctors in the Rural Medicine Program in medical school. As a rural family physician, specifically in underserved areas of Illinois, Dr. Lanoue discovered he could realize his desire to make a difference by providing patients with easier access to consistent care. Focusing his primary care practice on community and women’s health at the Onarga Clinic and the Watseka Clinic enables him to help families thrive by providing medical care that impacts the quality of life, with the management of diabetes and hypertension being at the top of the list. 


He is excited to be part of GAHHS, and noted, "The support for quality rural medicine is always there, not only in the community but among the colleagues." As a physician whose goal is to simply practice rural medicine, he is among good company considering the recent accolades received by several medical staff members for their excellence in rural healthcare.
