  • went in for emg.. the girl was very good the dr. was late could not understand him left no time for questions nor did he seem interested ... found him cold and abrupt...

  • First visit and was pleased with all aspects

  • Everything was professional, informational, explained clearly and compassionately. I appreciated the kindness and attention given to me during my visit.

  • Awesome doctor listen to me and office staff were very kind.

  • Everyone there explained everything that was being done and everything that was going on with me very thoroughly and made sure I understood what was going on.

  • The staff was great. But the neurologist was awful he didn't listen to me at all. Issue I went therefore wasn't even taken care of.

  • The support staff was kind, listened and answered questions. I found the doctor to be rude and not willing to answer questions. His way of ending the appointment (to tell me to leave the room) was "we are done here". Never asked I had any questions.

  • Everything went fantastic from start to finish. The only thing I wish is that it may have been some kind of alternative stretch or some other kind of opportunity to get some kind of rejuvenation in the meantime. Some kind of holistic workout of sorts.

  • I waited 30min to see the doctor for only 3min and I felt rushed out of there.

  • Yes, I thought the doctor was very knowledgeable, uplifting, and intuitive of what was going.

  • The girl that did the first test explained everything and how it might hurt. She was so sweet!

  • I was extremely satisfied with the care that I received. The Office Staff were pleasant, and expediated my appointment with no wait time. I also like Dr. Burakgasi. He was polite and easy-going. He addressed my health concerns professionally and in a manner that I could relate too. I would definitely recommend this Physician to family members should the need arise. Thank you for making my visit less stressful and anxiety-free!!!!

  • Dr.Burakgazi listened better than any physician I have seen. He explained information in a way for anyone to understand. I thought he was excellent at his job.

  • 1st time with this doc and i like him talked to me in language i could understand

  • I was scheduled for an EMG test by my doctor.. I wasn't given any information as to what to expect. Once at the facility, the check in process was confusing. The desk staff seemed annoyed and told me I was supposed to have called in from the parking lot before coming in...there are NO signs in the lot or on the doors indicating these instructions, and the kind people doing the temperature checks didn't ask or remind me or anyone else that they had to call in ... I don't feel it's necessary to have to call in from the parking lot, it's a waste of time and added nusiance. Both the technician and the MD I saw for the test were very nice, and efficient.

  • Yes, he was very nice. And so was the secretary that we paid her and then they called us in within 5 minutes and he wanted to make sure I was okay. He was just doing a follow up and I had to answer 3 questions and that was pencil, window and school bus. He told me that in the beginning and at the end. He said do you remember the three words I said, yes. I do. I told him pencil, window and school bus, and he said your memories a lot better than what it used to be. So, he was very happy told me I didn't have to see him for year. That's it. Thank you.

  • The doctor was wonderful. He remembered my past medical history. He discussed my, my health and ongoing concerns. The office was beautiful. The staff was terrific. It was nice to see [Name] again. She was a lovely when she worked with me, and she was lovely working there at Dr. Burakgazi's office.

  • I received very good care when I went to the doctor and he was very good explained everything. My only comment is about this survey because some of the questions are I this was my first visit.

She was professional, personable, polite and had such a positive attitude. The girl that checked me out and set up my appointments was also extremely helpful.

  • The doctor is great. The office staff needs to be better. I was treated unprofessionally and rudely. Also the medical assistant was in such a hurry she did a poor job. Rushed through my history and did not ask about my present condition. I have a new medical problem. It seems the entire staff with the exception of the doctor should be retrained or replaced.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
