Since seeing Dr. Duarte for the first time, I have noticed significant improvements within my body after surgeries I have had and, to my mental health. Receiving treatments from Dr. Duarte also helped me overcome my smoking addiction. I cannot express enough gratitude and will continue to see him regularly.

I have been seeing Dr. Duarte for over 3 years and am nothing but thrilled with his service. He takes time to listen, addresses specific concerns, and expresses an interest in my overall well-being. I highly recommend him and his services!

Since becoming a patient of Dr. Duarte and regularly receiving acupuncture, I have felt alot of relief from pains related to injuries I’ve had as well as improvement in overall well-being and stress relief. He is a great person and is warm and welcoming, I always recommend him to my friends and family. He is the best at what he does!

I was suffering from chronic knee pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, stomach issues etc…, my friend recommended acupuncture with Dr. Duarte. I was sceptical about it. My pcp doctor said “I don’t know what else to do for you” after I saw pain management, rheumatologist, I got injections on one knee, physical therapy, massage, I was told I needed knee replacement, I accepted care for 3 years with all of the above. I decided to give Dr. William Duarte a chance. The first day I came to see him, I got beautiful results, I could walk, now stomach issues are gone, my whole body is healing. I’ve been seeing Dr. Duarte for the past 4 years, THANK YOU, Doctor Duarte for always being processional, knowledgeable, and. Caring.

Dr. Duarte is a treasure. He provided great relief to my neck and back following a bad accident and now helps with the acute aches and pains that pop up with life. His extensive expertise, deep knowledge and genuine compassion are invaluable. I always feel looser and lighter after seeing him!

Exceptional experience! I was referred to Dr Duarte to get relief from frozen shoulder pain I was experiencing and I couldn’t be happier with the results. His expertise, professionalism and genuine care made each session a calming and transformative journey. Not only did he alleviate my discomfort, but he also provided valuable insights into holistic well-being. I highly recommend Dr Duarte for natural healing and renewed vitality. Thank you Dr Duarte for your exceptional service!

Amazing Results

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Duarte for several years. He has treated us from aches and pains, migraine headaches to stroke recovery. We always leave his clinic feeling much better and can’t say enough about how knowledgeable and skillful he is in acupuncture techniques. Give him a try. You won’t be disappointed.

If you are in pain – any kind of pain – see Dr. Duerte. Dr. D is a life saver. MRI confirmed I have a C5 herniated disc with pinched nerve. The pain is mostly manageable, but I couldn’t sleep last night from the pain. I got up feeling totally jacked and decrepit. He fit me in last minute, some quick injections and 2 hours later I have relief. The treatment isn’t exactly pleasant but it is worth it.

He’s worth it. He’s worth the drive (30 mins for me, but people drive 3 hours from Portland to see him and leave happy) and the cost. I can’t even explain what a difference he makes in my quality of life. It’s life changing. I have muscle pain, Intra-spinus ligament pain, TMJ pain, headaches, pinched nerve pain, piriformus syndrome pain (most likely, not 100% positive) and he helps with it all. Yes, my body is all messed up and he makes it feel better. He’s amazing. Thank you Dr. D.

William is the Best! It’s amazing what happens to my body after a little needling session.Once I came in head held low and actually left with a spring in my step. He also makes great salves that work better and smell better than most pain relievers.

Dr. Duarte has been a life saver! I started seeing Dr D summer of 2017 and have been seeing him every two weeks. I have had sever allergies, asthma and inflammation and I have felt significant improvement. Not only does Dr D provide acupuncture but also has a wealth of knowledge in natural remedies and Chinese herbs to deal with root cause for health issues and great council. I highly recommend him and the clinic. The Kirkland Whole Life Clinic is easy to work with for your insurance too!

I have been seeing Dr. Duarte (William) for over two years and have received services for mainly acupuncture, but also, counseling, massage and supplements. William truly has a gift and is incredibly tuned in to what my body is feeling and needs. As much as that, William puts his care for his patients above all else and I feel that every time I go there. I consider him a friend and valuable component to my health, and I am very grateful to have found him.

I have been a patient of Dr Duarte for almost three years now following a car accident and after trying MANY physical therapists, massage therapists, chiropractors and several doctors of allopathic and naturopathic medicine only to then be referred to Dr Duarte and I couldn’t be happier! He is compassionate, humble, humorous and truly has the well being of the patient in mind. Plus the treatment ACTUALLY works. Very happy with the results and am still coming for treatments even though my PIP claim has ended because it works for so many things! Thank you so much!! Couldn’t be happier with the service

Whitewater rafting is one of my passions. Because it is a hard job and I’ve had some injuries in the past crashing on my dirt bike, gymnastics and not to mention the emotional baggage we tend to store in our bodies, some days I am in so much pain I can’t get up off the floor or out of bed. I have been on a mission to heal myself for many years studying natural health. I happened to stroll into McQuinn Naturopathic and I was always curious about acupuncture so I decided to give it a try. I was very impressed with the atmosphere of the facility, the staff was friendly and Dr William Duarte was awesome! I woke up the last 2 days without being stiff and in pain!! I went into my appointment feeling like I got hit by a train and left about an hour later feeling like I was walking in the clouds =) Thank you all at the facility for your help!!

This facility and staff deserve my time like no other. This review is a long time overdue, but life as we know happens. My story is long and will attempt to make it as brief as possible. Just know that YOU are in the RIGHT spot if you are reading this.

Dr. William Duarte saved my life! In 2016, I went from being a hard working, physically active, mom and wife to not walking, to not being able to talk or use my arms or hardly keep my eyes open. I was a living breathing vegetable. My husband would have to carry me to the bathroom, change my diapers you name it he had to do it all because well something was wrong with me but multiple , Neurologists, Spine specialist, Rheumatologist, Ear Nose Throat Specialist, Dermatologist, PCP, long hospital stays, Physical Therapist and who knows how many others I seeked help from. I am TERRIFIED of the medical system PTSD.

My first visit I was wheeled in on a chair, eyes could not open and I can not speak let alone barely hold my body up. Dr. Duarte out of all the doctors I have seen is the 1st one to read through my medical record that is the size of a mini bible. I started to cry at the fact that someone took the time to really get an idea of what he was working with. He did a technique I believe called the “Lightning Injection” holy heck did that hurt but who knew working on old incisions could make such a huge difference. At this point I was 30 days of not speaking or being able to communicate with my family, or hardly move. I left in happy tears and the next day Fathers Day 2017, I heard my first words “Can you hear me”? My husband came around the corner in disbelief, I was in shock, let me say it is crazy to hear your own voice after a month of silence. I stood up, did a little stretch and my voice went out. My husband reached out to Dr. D and told him what had happened, so we got back in and started on our long road to recovery. From there we started our journey of healing. Once I was up and going I was introduced to Dr. Sandi Sambrano and let me tell you I have two “Angles” working to heal me. Dr. Sandi and Dr. Duarte are so compassionate, empathetic, genuine, caring – “I want to help my patient” that you will be hard pressed to find anywhere, especially in WA. I could write for hours but LOOK NO FURTHER!!! Front desk staff AMAZING, Dr. Duarte and Dr. Sandi AMAZING, oh and their phlebotomist, she does a damn good job. Again I can’t say enough great things about these people or their facility. My heart is and will always be with them, my appreciation and gratitude will always be there. Thank you again Dr. Duarte and Dr. Sambrano for giving me my life back!!! This is a page of my bible story and I am finally living again don’t second guess going to them. They know what they are doing! I wish you and your family the very best and hope you get yourself onto a road of recovery as I have. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
