  • My provider, Dr. Burakgazi, is an awesome neurologist who is always assisting me with any epilepsy or brain issues I have, as soon as necessary.

  • The staff was the most extraordinarily pleasant staff I've ever dealt with at Charlton. Throughout my Southcoast experience I've had some wonderful wonderful experience. But at Dr. Burakgazi's office, this was unbelievable nice. I just can't say it enough times. How friendly, how courtesy, how detailed to explain things they were for me. It was just a wonderful experience.

  • Provider is just great ...

  • I'm truly thankful, for the dedication of Dr. Burakgazi and his team in helping me with my medical needs. They are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that I get the best care and treatments possible.

  • This provider made time to listen to my mom, the patient, and then met with me specifically as her HCP in order to not say things in front of my mom that woukd upset her. He is the first provider who has done this and it is appreciated. He was patient and kind. He was thorough with her exam as well.

  • Would have liked an appointment sooner

  • listen to my concerns

  • I really liked that the doctor very nice, intelligent and listened to my concerns fully and didn't speak to me like he was above me or like I was an idiot. We had a very intelligent conversation and made a plan. Also, the fact that multiple tests were ordered, and I have an appointment again soon makes me feel like this doctor really wants to help me. My other doctors don't quite seem like they want to listen, and I feel like if you can't listen to me explain my symptoms how will you be able to help me? But this doctor listened and was right on top of everything and not once was I made to feel wrong or overreacting. I was very impressed by this visit. It isn't easy finding a good doctor. It took about 5 months to get this appointment which was difficult when you're going through symptoms and don't know what to do. But I am glad I waited. 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.

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.
