I always feel heard and taken care of.

I wouldn't change anything about the office or staff. I can't think of anything where improvement would be needed.

There is nothing in my opinion they they could have done differently to improve on my appointment. They were perfect.

  • Hello,Sarah was very helpful when I had my cluster migraines. She was able to see me within 24 hours of calling the office. She took her time with me assess the possible causes and the issues. She explained the I would need an EMG and two prescriptions to assist the shot that she gave me for the migraine. Sarah explained how to take the medications. The office got me into have the EMG the next day. Sarah came to check on me while I was waiting for the test. She went and spoke with Dr. Burakgazi about my case and that I would need a nerve block. After the procedure, Sarah came out to check on me to make sure that I was doing ok and that I did not need anything else. She also asked me to contact her if I had any issues with the meds or the nerve block.As I work with many physicians, Sarah is very caring, very kind and wonderful Nurse Practitioner. One of a kind that is difficult to find in healthcare. I am grateful that Sarah is my Nurse Practitioner.

  • NP Souza took the time to listen to me and take the information to make a diagnosis, instead of some recent visits with other visits, where I was told my diagnosis based on incorrect notes and no discussion. She spent close to an hour with me, which today is unheard of, but makes all the difference. She was compassionate, thorough, and made sure I understood my diagnosis, medication, side effects, another test, and my follow up necessity. NP Souza even suggested direct messaging her through mychart for further inquiries or follow up. Medical Providers like her deserve more positive accolades!!! Thank you!!!

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.
