Dr. Steven V Turpin 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.

Dr. Turpin was THE best Doctor for pulmonology issues I've ever had!!! I first saw him in Homestead, FL then he moved to Longwood, FL. As far as I can tell, he has stopped practicing and no one knows where he is, only a number where I can get my records. I wish I could find him to be a patient again.
Steven Turpin is the most compassionate doctor I have ever had! He was my doctor through a very rough period when I was diagnosed with a serious lung disease at age 30. He was a young doctor in Chapel Hill at the time. I am 17 years post lung transplant and still going strong at age 55 thanks in part to his excellent care.
When I first started with Dr. Turpin I was having Asthma Attacks continually. Taking medrol and other antibiotics too often. when I saw him he immediately taught me how to use the Advair diskusproperly. He took time and determined which nasal spray would be best for me. He took me through a process that would determine what treatment would best suit me overall. I had started having the attacks in 2006. Got to Dr. Turpin after changing several times, in 2009. Did not have another attack until a year later during an exceptionally high period of pollen. However, he as taught me what to do and I am not afraid like I was before. Dr. Turpin is a top notch Dr.
