Dr Mazzola and her team (Dr. Morin, Dr. Tatiana and the wonderful Arleen) are simply the best. She diagnosed my 3 month-old-baby at first sight before X-rays. Only someone with more than 20 years´experience and the gift given by God can do this diagnose. One month later, the surgery of my baby was perfectly done. There is no word in the vocabulary that parents can said to thank everything done. God bless her, her team and America.

Dr. Mazzola's experience and skill set make her very highly sought after in the care of children with neurosurgical issues. I've witnessed first hand how she treats her patients and their families. Her acumen, judgement, insight and professionalism are extraordinary. She is always available to speak to the parent and child, and she does so in a way they can understand. Her compassion and dedication to the children she serves is always present, even on the most challenging of days.

After going here twice to have a bump checked on my daughter's head, I honestly have the feeling that they are more concerned with booking appointments than actually needing them. The front desk person was SO rude on the phone that it has made me never want to go there again. My daughter has a very tiny bump on her head and one of the nurse practitioners even threw out the potential of getting cosmetic surgery if it bothered me, which was so ridiculous as the bump is not even visible.

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!
