I am so grateful to Dr Mazzola!! She diagnosed my daughter's condition at age 5, after I had taken her to many doctors and had many scans and the condition had been missed. When my daughter de-stabilized this year, Dr Mazzola was there for us and provided the guidance we so needed. I don't know what we would have done without her expertise and compassion.

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!
