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...more

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.
