I highly recommend Dr. Ellen Antoine, and Vine Healthcare, to anyone that has health care needs. She and her staff provide me the care I need with kindness and professionalism. Equally important, all of my appointments have been on time with no waiting. I have been a patient of Dr. Ellen for almost 2 years now and in that time, she has cured me of problems that had persisted, and worsened, for 11 years. During those 11 long years, I had been treated continuously by a variety of traditional medicine practitioners without success. The past 2 years of care by Dr. Ellen has transformed my health and my life and these improvements have been noticed by family, friends and co-workers alike. Sincerely, Ellen Gigowski
I love Dr. Antoine. Her assessment and guidance have been immeasurably helpful to me. If you’re dealing with autoimmune diseases and chronic fatigue or pain – you may want to investigate functional medicine options or call her office and make an appointment.
I found Vine Healthcare at a critical time in my life. I developed a form of inflammatory bowel in college after my freshmen year when I was constantly on antibiotics, eating processed food, and continually stressed.
Dr. Ellen has given me my life back. I can’t thank her enough for giving me all the tools for healing my body. She is truly a lifesaver and cares about her patients. God put her in my life for a special reason and I am eternally grateful. Not a day goes by that I don’t smile when I realize how far I’ve come, and realize Vine Healthcare got me there. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The staff here is off the charts amazing too, I’ve never been anywhere like this. They care! If you are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, you’ve got to go here. You won’t regret getting your life back and feeling wonderful.
Dr. Ellen Antoine introduced me to PEMF when I was having challenges recovering from foot surgery. I noticed a difference from the very first treatment! My nerve pain went away; circulation, flexibility and range of motion in my foot also dramatically improved. The incisions that were directly treated with the PEMF probe also faded considerably. After treatments I am more relaxed, have more energy and I sleep better at night. My experience is that PEMF is great for addressing a wide range of conditions and I highly recommend it!
When I came to Vine Healthcare, I was absolutely at my wit’s end. I dealt with chronic fatigue, digestive issues and female hormone imbalances for years. I saw many other doctors and nutritionists but was unable to find relief. Despite the fact that I’d been on thyroid hormone replacement for almost a year, my thyroid symptoms were nearly debilitating. At 25, I couldn’t stay awake past 9 p.m. and my strict diet wasn’t doing anything to ease my stomach pain. Although I balked at the initial cost of testing, I felt that even a few small answers would make it worth my time and money.
Dr. Ellen diagnosed me with autoimmune thyroid disease, which was the first step in my healing. I switched to a more effective medication and my energy levels skyrocketed. I was also encouraged to make dietary changes that finally brought me some relief. I like to know as much about my healthcare plan as possible, and I loved that I was always given as much time and explanation as I wanted in regards to my labs, treatment plan and alternative therapy options.
Vine Healthcare is a very special blend of cutting edge medicine and alternative treatment, and it’s a place where patients feel respected and affirmed. The doctors are completely undaunted by difficult symptoms, which always makes me feel less frustrated and alone.
I have more energy, less anxiety and have been able to reduce my antibodies since my first visit to Vine Healthcare. Plus, I’ve lost weight!
Dr. Ellen’s empathy, dedication and commitment to truly listening to her patients are things I’ve never experienced from a practitioner. From my very first visit, I felt the whole team at Vine Healthcare were caring partners in my journey toward wellness. They gave me hope in what was truly one of the most challenging periods of my life. I am so thankful!
I first stepped into Dr. Ellen Antoine’s office back in 2014 with so many issues that no other specialist could cure, that I thought I was destined to live a compromised quality of life. Quite the contrary, due to Dr. Ellen’s relentless and innovative approach she quickly discovered the root cause of my issues and I now feel better physically and cognitively than I did in my 20’s! I was treated with such compassion by the entire office that every time I visit I feel like I am visiting family. I am thankful every day that Dr. Ellen is in my life!!!
I met Dr. Antoine at a very low point in my life. My husband, Josh, and I had experienced 3 miscarriages. I was getting migraines weekly, had very little energy, had terrible allergies, was sick often, and couldn’t lose weight. Looking back, I feel that finding Dr. Antoine was a gift from God.
It’s been a year since I’ve been seeing Dr. Antoine and these are a few of the victories we’re celebrating…
I’m down 65 lbs! And Josh is down 60 lbs!
I have energy…
I did not get a sinus infection this winter for the first time in SIX years! Previously, I was on back-to-back rounds of antibiotics each winter for them.
I’m not in pain…
I can go for a walk and not be completely wiped afterwards…
I have a great arsenal of yummy recipes we like that help us be healthy…
I have WAY fewer migraines now and am able to avoid most of my triggers…
It’s been a lot of hard work… food is super key for me, so eating well has become a higher priority in our time and budget. But it’s been well worth it. We both feel great and weigh less than we did when we got married 5 years ago!
Dr. Antoine is an amazing, gifted doctor. She takes the time to listen and get a thorough history. She explains complicated, scientific things in ways that are easy to understand. She has identified problems I’ve had that other doctors just said were normal (ie. low hormone levels that were in a “normal” range). Not to mention that Dr. Antoine and her staff are very encouraging and eager to help. Seeing Dr. Antoine has truly been a gift.

Much like Goldilocks’ quest, my search for finding a doctor that could assist my family and I was long and unsuccessful, until I discovered Vine Healthcare. After discovering Vine’s truly wonderful and caring staff, I knew I had found the “just right” practice I had been searching for and needing so much. Dr. Antoine’s knowledge of Traditional Medicine paired with her Functional Medicine approach was everything we needed to overcome years of medical ailments plaguing my entire family. Obesity, migraines, IBS, food sensitivities and allergies, neurological issues, joint pain, hypoglycemia, and skin problems are just a few of the concerns we were facing. Usually when you start a journey, you have an idea of where you are and hopefully know where you are going. At the beginning of our journeys though, we knew neither. Over-medicated, unsure of a proper diagnosis, and ready for a change, our journey to health through a relationship with Vine is by far one of the best choices our family has ever made. Like with any journey, knowing how to get there is important. Throughout our quest for health, Dr. Antoine and her staff have been our map, going above and beyond what practices typically do to help their patients. Their genuine care for their patients’ health shows in everything thing they do. I am so thankful to God for pointing us in the right direction to start this journey, and thankful to Vine for being our guides to a healthier life.
I’m so thankful I found Dr. Antoine. After suffering from migraines for a majority of my life, I looked to find a physician who wasn’t going to just write me a script and move on to the next patient. I’ve been seeing her now for a little over 3 months and can truly say my life has changed. I experience far less headaches and am much healthier overall. She is a kind, compassionate and well-educated physician that is looking to partner with you on your journey to better health. She’s always available to speak with me in the event I have a question or concern and her staff is equally amazing. If you’re willing to invest the time and energy to start on your path to better health, I would highly recommend you see Dr. Ellen Antoine.
I have spent the past 20 years with slowly increasing weight and declining health. I am only 5″ 1″, and I topped the scales at 230 pounds a few years ago. I have been unable to lose much at all these last several years, despite trying many different classes and diet plans. I have been given multiple diagnoses over the years…Fibromyalgia, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, IBS with chronic constipation, Interstitial Cystitis, Asthma, GERD, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Hormonal disturbances, Hypothyroidism and the list goes on.
Every time I went to the doctor, it seemed like I got a new diagnosis and a new medication to go with it. I was so desperate to feel better that each new diagnosis and medication would renew my hope that maybe this would finally be what would “fix” me, but nothing ever did. As my weight and fatigue level continued to increase, I found that working all day took all my energy. I didn’t have energy to get things done at home in the evenings, including cooking, which just exacerbated my already very poor eating habits. I couldn’t keep up with the housework, which just caused more stress and more fatigue, and the cycle felt never-ending.
I didn’t know how to break the cycle, and the doctors I had seen in the past mostly threw more medicine at me. At any given time, I was on 15 to 20 prescription medications. I felt like the medicines kept me functioning so I didn’t end up on disability, and I had just accepted this as my reality. But after both my 60-some-year-old parents went to heaven in the last two years due to a lifetime of poor choices and poor health, I realized that I had to do something.
I was ready for a true fix…a true cure. I was ready to do anything to feel better. And then, Vine Healthcare came into my life. In the first 5 weeks of my treatment at Vine, I have lost an incredible 20 pounds! I am already off of several of my prescription meds, my pulse and blood pressure have normalized, and I have more energy than I have had in years. And this is just the beginning of my journey. Now that Dr. Ellen has found my true underlying issues, my body can truly finally heal. Instead of just “functioning”, I feel like I am now thriving! I can’t wait to see how much better I continue to feel as I move toward a true cure instead of just managing my myriad of symptoms.
My husband has been so inspired by my health improvements, that he has made an appointment to see Dr. Scott. Now, we can go on this journey together and change the health of our family forever! It was by God’s divine hand that I found Vine at the moment in my life when I was finally ready to make lasting changes. I am so thankful for the wisdom of Dr. Ellen and the whole Vine Staff because I know I’m now on the road to being healthy and whole again.
I found Vine Healthcare at a critical time in my life. I developed a form of inflammatory bowel in college after my freshmen year when I was constantly on antibiotics, eating processed food, and continually stressed. When I went to my general doctor, I was sent away with steroids that kept my condition under control for a little while, but caused some not so friendly side effects. I continued to take the steroids on and off for several years until they stopped working completely. At that point, I decided to take my health into my own hands and started to research alternative medicine. I decided that I wanted to find a doctor that actually healed the body rather than cover up my symptoms with a pill. After reading a little bit about what Vine Healthcare believed, I knew it was the perfect place to go.
During my first meeting with Dr. Scott Antoine, my husband and I were blown away by his knowledge of healing the body. It was clear that he is passionate about what he does and therefore, researches and stay up to date on the latest medical findings. He took the entire history of my life into consideration when finding the best route to address my condition, which is something I never had when dealing with other doctors. They had me on a regimen that addressed my condition from all angles including, nutrition, detoxification, and supplementation. We continued to be blown away after meeting with the health coach, Nedra Hiday. She is an expert on using food as medicine and lead me on a nutritional journey that started to repair my body and improve my symptoms after two weeks!
I am so grateful that I was lead to Vine Healthcare and that doctors like this exist. I can’t thank them enough for what they have done. Currently, 100% of my symptoms are gone, I am full of energy, and happy! I forgot what it was like to feel this good. I owe it all to the amazing doctors and staff at Vine!!
“I have been a migraine sufferer for over 30 years and I have been to every kind of doctor you can imagine. Dr. Antoine is the type of doctor I have been looking for all these years. She took the time to ask me questions and to listen to my answers. She not only came up with a reasonable treatment plan, she did so quickly and concisely, giving me clear instruction on how to carry out the treatment plan. Dr. Antoine is also caring & compassionate and her love for the LORD shows in the way she treats and loves her patients.”
“Ellen is an amazing doctor. She is thorough, caring and very knowledgeable in her field. I would recommend her to my closest friends and family. She not only goes above and beyond her job, but she genuinely cares about her patients and longs to see them recover and heal. Blessings!!”
“Dr. Antoine, I can’t tell you what a tremendous blessing you have been in my life during this very difficult time with my health. You have been the body of Christ to me during this healing process. Your passion and care for the individual always shines through. Thank you!”
“I simply cannot say enough about Dr. Antoine’s care. Her combination of both functional medicine and traditional medicine was the catalyst to my achievement of total wellness. In addition, her intuitive care and overall genuine compassion for her patients are qualities I find not only incredibly necessary in this field, but also quite rare in today’s impersonal society.”
