Short Hills, NJ |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Mazzola to a family member or friend. I trust her and have faith that she has the best interest for her patients health. Her and her staff go above an beyond for patients! When I hear about other people who have seen her they have nothing but nice things to say about her. When devastated parents hear that their child will have to have surgery, Dr. Mazzola is very informative and compassionate in helping them. She is a fantastic surgeon!
