  • Hello. Entering Dr. Burakgazi's office for South Coast Medical, I am immediately helped, understood, and things are explained to me correctly. When I get to Dr. Burakgazi, it is in a timely manner, and he is very personable, helpful, and knows the history of my health. When I'm leaving, they check me out, and they definitely ask me if I need anything else, help me with appointments. Everything is perfect. When I call or send a message through the portal, I am answered in a prompt, and customer service is perfect. Thank you.

  • My experience, it was awesome. The doctor and the medical assistant, she was great, very care about the patient. So I highly recommend it.

  • The office staff was exceptionally nice and efficient. My only problem was I am exceptionally deaf and the doctor speaks with a thick accent. But he was very nice and listened to me

  • I was received very promptly. Staff was extremely personable, efficient, and professional. Dr. Borogazi (spelling?) is very concerned, clearly aware of all past history, explains things thoroughly, and has an excellent manner. Definitely a 5-Star office visit, as these always are.

  • I was able to get follow-up visits and testing within a week, and I found the doctor to have very good eye contact, which is always a cost, and pre-knowledge of why I was there, which is also important instead of you just going in and the doctor having to read his notes, which should have been read prior to your entry, but this guy was very well-informed, and I would recommend him and this office very highly. Thank you.

  • Dr fully explained what my problem most likely was and how he was planning to treat it.

  • I waited 45 minutes after the medical assistant took my blood pressure while the doctor and that MA discussed her career goals, a less reliable colleague, and donuts someone had brought in. I finally went to the check out desk to ask for help. After another 5 minutes, the doctor came in and blamed the issue on a computer issue. He had not looked at my chart, didn't know why I was there, and didn't know that I had already had an mri. He then offered various meds. I will be calling to switch doctors or leaving the practice.

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.
