Dr Ence is the most through Pulminologist I have ever witnessed. Very caring, leaves no problem unsolved. Goes above and beyond to take care of his patients. Makes sure the patient and the patients family is all involved and aware of all issues. You will find no better Pulminologist in the LA area.

Dr Ence is arrogant, non communicative, dismissive and his staff is incompetent, unable, apparently to order the proper medications.

My mother went to see Dr Ence because she's had breathing problem since her 30's! She's 84 now and can barely breathe? Dr Ence's diagnosis? She's a "COUCH POTATO!" How's that for a nice doctor? Not true. She wasn't a couch potato in her 30's Dr Ence. You should not have said that to her and that is not a good diagnosis.

Dr. Ence is an amazing and very caring doctor! The best doctor I ever had. He kept me alive so I could receive my double lung transplant. He is more than a doctor. He is my friend.
