Dr. Ismet B Kursunoglu has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I am a RN who developed shortness of breath and coughing so bad I could not work. I had multiple studies,xrays,labs and was just put on more medicines. In my first visit Dr. K. took the time to really listen to my history, what was done, reviewed my medications, did a pulmonary function test and exam, then layed out a plan to get better. I cannot tell you what a joy it is to take a deep breath! More than that, the hopelessness is gone and I am working toward better long term health. He is the best doctor I have seen in 27 years of being a nurse. How lucky we are to have him here in Alaska.
Dr. K is highly knowledgeable about everything in Medicine. He takes the time to listen to you and thoroughly reviews your history as well as your medical records. As a pulmonologist (lung physician), Dr. "K" is trained in NY to carefully review your XRAYS, MRI, CT Scans, etc. Dr. K has found and corrected many issues that other Doctors dismissed. I haven't felt this well in years! Dr. K put me on the right medicine and stopped all the wrong ones that less competent physicians, Nurse Practioners, & DOs started. Dr. K carefully examined me, did a thorough clinical exam, spent time with me, and carefully thought about and evaluated my problem. Dr. K did not send me all over town for countless expensive and unnecessary medical tests, so I guess you could say he got me back to feeling well and enjoying life without wasting my time & money.Dr. K is accessible, returns his phone calls, and is extremely kind!Do yourself a favor and see this physician first. Dr. Kursunoglu is everything that you would want your doctor to be!
