  • Dr. Chris Parrett


    Local Doctor 

    Dr. Parrett is what they call in Belvidere, a BNR (Born and Raised).  He graduated from Belvidere high school in 2003.  Thereafter, he attended Rock Valley College and received an associate of science degree.  He then went on to Northern Illinois for a year before deciding to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA where he received a bachelor’s in science and a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree.

    Going after the Cause 

    Early on in my schooling, I had figured out that I wanted to do something in healthcare, but didn’t know what direction I wanted to go.  It was long after that I got a passion for exercising and nutrition.  I then had gone to a chiropractic office with my parents, had a great talk with him and found out that it is a healthcare based on getting to the root of the cause of an issue the natural holistic way.  I realized that my passion for exercise and nutrition went hand in hand with that.

    Trained to Analyze Spinal Health 

    Dr. Parrett attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Palmer is known in chiropractic circles as the “Fountainhead of Chiropractic.” The college was named after D.D. Palmer, the inventor of chiropractic who founded the college in 1897. While there, Dr. Parrett learned about the motion of each muscle and joint to enable him to analyze and adjust specific areas of the body. He worked in a community outreach clinic during his time at Palmer, treating patients who couldn’t afford chiropractic care at the school clinic.

    Dr. Parrett was also chosen to join a trip that opened a free clinic in India, where he treated children and adults at no charge. The group spread chiropractic health to more than 10,000 people!

    Enjoying our Local Area

    In Dr. Parrett’s spare time, he tries to stay as active as possible.  As said before, exercising is must for him.  There are some great parks in the area in which he, his wife Emily and their dog Sophie love to go hiking.  For leisure time, he and Emily love trying the hidden local cuisines in the area. 

    Community Involvement

    Supporting our local community is important to Dr. Parrett.  He serves on the local board of the YMCA and is a member of the Cosmo Club that donates to many great causes in the area.

  • Debbie Gates

    Weight Loss Coach

    Deborah “Deb” Gates grew up in Rockford, Illinois with 5 siblings.  Having been the youngest girl and a Tom-Boy … she always gave her parents something to worry about. Some of her non-stop activities included … biking, swimming, dancing, snowmobiling, 4wheeling, playing tennis, softball, and football! (YES... Football!!) Still enjoys (to this day) all of the above. Basically …Every sport (except …bowling)

     The accomplishment that deems the most bragging rights would have to be raising her 3, now adult children (ages...18, 24, & 25). She was lucky enough to spend the majority of her time with her children (mostly a stay at home mom) & loved every single second.

    Certified in Health & Wellness, Personal Training, & Group Fitness she had worked at both branches of the Rockford YMCA until her mom (her best friend) passed away in December 2012. Currently working for Dr. Chris Parrett (New Millennium Medical) she bares the title of Coach Gates for Midwest Ideal Weight Loss in Belvidere. Her clients who usually end up as (her friends) have a combined weight loss total of over 2,000 pounds!

It truly warms her heart to see the (healthier) changes that her clients have made! She has been quoted saying…”I have the best job in the entire world!”  Some might even add that she is a “real life” Super Hero!!  Crazy…I know, but…true (:
