  • I would recommend Dr. B for neurology issues to any of my friends or family. I think he is a considerate, Knowledgeable, and compate Dr. and he has been good to me and my health issues.

  • Dr. Ordered test that 3 other Southcoast Dr's. Did not in the past 3 years. Huge relief to find out it was not nerve damage which other Dr's. Told me it was.

  • Very good

  • Very knowledgeable

  • Dr. Burakgazi was thorough and made sure I was able to discuss all of my concerns before I left. It was my first time here and I feel confident that I'm in good hands

  • The office was very busy and I had to wait about a half an hour or so after my schedule time but I understand that happens in doctors offices everybody was courteous and kind The office was organized and very clean and a very convenient location

  • I am satisfied with that visit

  • Dr. Broski is very knowledgeable, he listens to me and he help me through a lot. He's a very good doctor very good. And he's a kind person to. Thank you

  • Everything was excellent.

  • Dr. Burakgazi and staff are always amazing. They are attentive, caring, and always willing to help.I have hemiplegic migraines and have seen many doctors. Dr. Burakgazi was able to help me the most, after trying medications he recommended Botox for my migraines. This is the only treatment that has given me relief in over 10 years, I am so grateful for Dr. Burakgazi! In addition, the SouthCoast pharmacy helped me, I am disabled and on a limited income, the pharmacy had me log into a website where I received a card to get the injections without a co-pay.I rate the office a 10 and give them an A+++ in all that they do. Thank you.

  • Lately it's rare to get a good specialist that takes time to listen, look at your previous tests, labs, etc and med list. Oh!!! And actually does a physical evaluation and doesn't tell you, "they think." This Dr seemed like he wanted answers. As do I. Not, "I think" or "most likely" or being rushed out of office. After my horrific experience with [Name] [Name] last week, I was forever grateful and thankful to finally get a Dr who cared.

  • Staff was kind and sincere

  • It was quick on time, ask questions to listen, and I was very impressed

  • I was explained everything I needed to know I'm so thankful.

  • All was well I don't see need for change thanks

  • Very professional and knowledgeable.

  • No comment everything went well

  • We need More doctors like Dr. Burakgazi in this area.

  • My experiences with Dr. Burakgazi are excellent.

  • An appointment quicker would have been better.

  • The provider is okay. The front staff for check out was extremely rude.

  • I felt like the dr certainly was knowledgeable but could have had a bit more interaction with patient. Perhaps either guiding one to a website or explaining what was happening a little better.

  • The Dr listened to what I had to say and I didn't feel rushed.

  • Dr. B was very understanding about how I felt

  • The provider was fine during both visits and explained what was going to happen. However, after the second visit, there was no one at the check out window so I had to go to the check in window after waiting 10 minutes and then being told to go to the end of the line. I did not get any summary reports nor do I know if something the doctor wanted scheduled was even scheduled. The person did not give me any information

  • I'm disappointed that he didn't treat me for what I originally went there for. I'm satisfied that he was interested in my feet but he is referring me back to the doctor that referred me to him so then I am disappointed.

  • The staff were very helpful in moving up my appt date due to a cancellation. When I went to the wrong office, they contacted the right office, gave me directions and were very supportive.It was my first appt with Dr. Burakgazi and he put me (and my wife, who accompanied me) at ease immediately. He had my medical history available on the computer, asked pertinent questions and listened intently. He didn't interrupt and kept eye contact throughout. We never felt that he was in a hurry or brushed off our concerns. He explained the testing that he wished to do and made suggestions for lifestyle changes that could improve my memory and forestall deterioration, and told us that these suggestions would be available on My Chart, so we didn't have to take notes or try to remember them. We were encouraged and more hopeful when we left.

  • Upon entering the office I was cordially and kindly greeted by the staff at the check in window. I sat for no more than 2 minutes when an employee introduced herself as [Name] and led me to a small room to be weighed and fitted with a finger heartbeat and 02 monitor. Small conversation took place and then I was led to an exam room where I was to be met by Dr.B, the neurologist. Introduced ourselves and then a brief oral exchange took place so as to start my exam. He was very well prepped with my medical history and also had the computer info on before him. Brief physical exam completed and gave some insight as to my condition and forthcoming prescribed treatment. Dr. B gave me his diagnosis and advice in a very clear and non-rushed manner. He answered questions that I had and told me to call his office anytime and to request a call back if there were any concerns. He completed his exam and in a very non-rushed manner told me that he had finished and with a sincere forearm bump, we parted ways. A follow up appointment was made at the check-out window, and again the young lady greeted me very kindly and immediately set up the new appointment. She handed me a printout of my visit and had called in my new prescription to my local pharmacy. She asked if I had any questions about my visit or the paperwork. As I was leaving, the office personnel and medical staff bid me farewell and out I went. The entire group that I encountered should be applauded as to how they treat and greet patients. SouthCoast Health should be proud of to have them in their circle. Thank you.

  • I did not have to wait long before an MA came out to the waiting area and get me to bring me into an exam room. I did not have to wait long for the doctor. I appreciated that, as I had to get to work. I was happy with the appointment. Thank you.

  • explained everything

  • I've only had one visit. It was informative and I'm hopeful for better care as this neurologist did listen and start me on medication and seemed to want to help me more than past doctors.

  • He answered all our questions and was open to our needs for more testing like an MRI. He was also down to earth not condesending like some doctors can be. Was also aware of possible nerve issues and recommending certain testing.

  • Dr. Burakgazi is so caring and nice. He takes the time. He doesn't Rush speaks very, very kindly to me, which I really appreciate and explains things and what he's going to do and why he's going to do it, so I cannot ask for anything more than that. I think he's been wonderful and I really appreciate him as my doctor. Thank you.

  • I had a lot of questions and they answered them all the way I could understand. I was very pleased with the visit.

  • It was my first visit so some answers about medical history are skewed because it was our first meeting. He seemed informed, he listened to me, and I would like to continue to see the Dr.

  • He was knowledgeable but I had a few more questions I wanted answered I will ask in person at my appointment I'm concerned about my passing out my vision dizziness and shooting pains and not being able to get out of bed for 45minutes when I wake up cause of this and the pain

  • The Medical Assistant and Doctor are wonderful! Very interested in my husband's condition and what they can do to help him. The Doctor has set up several tests for him and they were set up very quickly. My husband feels very comfortable with the Doctor and we both trust that he is doing the best for him and have full confidence in him. There was a receptionist when we first arrived that was rather difficult. My husband has memory issues and is young (51) so I understand the miscommunication, but she was rather rude to him and he was upset about it. I understand it is common for people to not realize that younger people can have memory issues, but it is a neurologists office. A little kindness goes a long way in this crazy world. This is just an observation, not trying to get anyone in trouble.

  • Everyone in the office is very professional and genuinely kind. I never have to wait long to see my provider. Dr.B is amazing and consider myself extremely lucky to have him.

  • Thourogh and pleasant. Wait a little longer than expect. Otherwise well done. MA was very nice and informative. Did a great job and very knowledgeable. Thank you

  • Get help that follows thru on medication refills and knows how to fill out foumurlary forms I have tried for over two months to get a refill on lyrica with no results I had seen the dr on Monday of this week and once again the form still is not filled out and today is Friday I have been sick to my stomach without the lyrics

  • Excellent and timely service

  • I asked what the new medication would do, and he said it could possibly improve my memory. I don't know how, or how likely he thought this was, in my case.

  • My visit was exceptional! My doctor was amazing!!! Thank you for asking.

  • I usually leave doctors offices feeling like nothing was accomplish, but Dr. Burakgazi takes the time to listen, and set up a plan to try to get me the answers I'm seeking. He is knowledgeable, caring and takes the time to thoroughly ask specific questions to assess the issues. I'm very appreciative of him.

  • I just want to let you know, this is [Name] [Name] and Dr. Burakgazi is an awesome neurologist and has helped me in every situation that my head has been through. Thank you.

  • I was treated very nice and kind by everyone. Dr. burakgazi listened to me carefully and treated me with kindness and dignity.

  • Treat me like family

  • Dr. Burakgazi was very thorough, very informative and I was quite pleased with the treatment I received.

  • My appointment notice told me to arrive 15 minutes ahead of my appointment time which was 8:00 AM. I got there at 7:40 and the office was locked. At 7:50 AM someone finally arrived. I was called into the doctors office at 8 o'clock, a nurse took my pulse and blood pressure and asked me several questions about my medication. She left at 8:05 telling me the doctor would be in shortly. He did not arrive until 8:30. This is completely unsatisfactory as I had to be the first patient of the day.. I will not make any appointments with this doctor again.

  • I was supposed to get a prescription called in to my Pharmacy and it is 2 days later, and I still don't have a prescription there. I think that something got all messed up. I will call the office Monday morning to see if I can get a prescription called in, that the doctor was going to call. Thank you.

  • Everything went very well, and I was very satisfied.

  • The staff was wonderful! I didn't catch the name of who checked me in but she was very kind. [Name] who brought me back is a gem!!! The Doctor was pleasant and informative! All in all it was a positive experience!

  • Appointment was on time

  • They took me right in for my appointment and the doctor was extremely kind a listen to me and my concerns sent me for a test that he thought it would be the right ones to figure out what is wrong with me and I appreciate that very much and I can't wait to see him to figure out what is wrong with me

  • Things were explained well. Questions an swered. Good follow up arranged.

  • The Dr and staff were all very polite. helpful and informative. I also was impressed by the steps taken to protect from Covid.

  • I waited a long time to be seen by this Specialist and I feel I still don't have any answers as to the cause of the increasing pain of the bone lesion on my skull. I do not feel comfortable being treated for a migraine.

  • He listened to any concerns I had and he helped me with them

  • Listen

  • Dr B was very professional and caring. He listened to my description of my symptoms and provided valuable insight into what might be the cause. He arranged for specific blood tests to get additional data. His staff was also excellent in their jobs.

I've had two back surgeries within a year and still suffer daily to the point it brings me to tears . I really wish they were more efficient in getting the help needed

  • Better explanation of what the EMG test indicated. Also, the test was done on 7/29/21 and I haven't seen results in MyChart as of today, 8/1. Other tests I've had done have typically been posted within 24 hours.

  • The doc seemed knowledgeable and ordered tests quickly to assess my problem. The support staff was friendly and approachable. It was a good experience. The only flaw was waiting three months to get in to see the doc.

  • Southcoast I've always had great experience. And great doctors. You guys do a great job. Life [Name] is horrible, they do a terrible job I've been going to the doctors for 27 years.

  • Everything from the time I arrived til time my visit was completed I at all times received excellent quality care … all my concerns were met with dignity & respect as well as judgement free environment in which I felt very comfortable opening up to talk about issues I probably wouldn't have brought up, but happy I did due to those needs were addressed and met in addition to the original reason I had the appointment for.

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.

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.
