EBUS procedure
When I needed an EBUS procedure related to my disease that needed to be diagnosed, I met the esteemed Ilgaz at Altunizade Acıbadem Hospital, he is a doctor who establishes a trusting dialog with his patients, he is serious and motivates his patient for the surgery, and most importantly, he is a doctor who is truly a professional in his field. I would definitely recommend Ilgaz without hesitation to anyone looking for a doctor in this field, you can safely carry out treatment with him. A speedy recovery to everyone. Many thanks to Ilgaz for everything. May 10, 2018.

examination
When my wife's CT scan results came back, I was very alarmed. Most of the people I consulted with recommended Dr. Ilgaz. When our cardiologist recommended the same, we went to him. I have never encountered such a high-energy and friendly doctor. C.T. scan, exam.... Don't be afraid, there is nothing here. Go, have fun, come back in 3 months. We felt so relieved! It is good that we have our Dr. Ilgaz. May God bless such doctors. March 28, 2018.

I regained my health with the help of Ilgaz Dogusoy's magic hands. The only gift this disease gave me was my Dr. Ilgaz, he became my father, my brother and my only friend. It is very good that there are doctors like him. We love him very much. November 7, 2014.

surgery
In addition to successful surgeries, this doctor is very communicative and supportive of the patient. He was the 4th doctor I went to during my pre-operative evaluation. After 3 minutes of communication, I decided that my surgery would be done by him. December 9, 2013.

Oncology
I, a non-smoker, keen sportsman, getting check-ups once every 2 years, almost had my brain blown up when I was faced with a mass in my left lung.... Thank God I met Dr. Ilgaz and had the surgery done by him. I won't go into details, it's been 2 weeks since I was discharged from the hospital, I even miss the checkups he did when I was in the hospital. August 29, 2013.

We owe a debt of gratitude to this outstanding doctor who has proved many times that he is a professional in his field, who made us forget about the disease with his calm and reassuring treatment and jokes, and gave his patient the confidence to undergo surgery after some time. We wish him health and success. January 13, 2013.

lung surgery
Dear respected Dr. Ilgaz, I owe my life to you, I don't think there is any other thoracic surgeon who does his job so perfectly, the patients who will be operated by you are very lucky. You don't remember me, you operated on me on 22-04-2009, my right lung was completely removed, believe me, it only affected my quality of life a little bit. It has been 4 years and I am perfect, I have no health problems, I am grateful to you for life. Regards. October 26, 2012.
