What People Say About Dr. J Mocco, MD
RecentMost Helpful

After 5 years of going to different doctors for having all kinds of symptoms, neck pain, pain on the back of my head, constant pressure in my head and neck, facial pain and swelling, painful eye, difficulty breathing among other symptoms, I was blessed to be referred to Dr. J. Mocco because he was the only doctor who diagnosed me with having Chiari Malformation, a rare medical condition. After ordering a few diagnostic tests and making sure that surgery was my only option, he preformed a Chiari Malformation Decompression with excellent results. Dr. Mocco is a caring, patient oriented, kind, brilliant doctor who explained to me everything about this condition in a simple language that anyone can understand.Even though, Dr. Mocco highly respected neurosurgeon in NYC and around the country, he is a humble person. For these and many other reasons I am so grateful that God put him in my path. I will recommend him with neurological problems. E. Estevez-Suero

I Thank God for His divine intervention in leading me to Dr. Mocco! I truly believe that he is one of God’s angels here on earth. I was diagnosed with an internal carotid artery brain aneurysm in 2017. From our very first meeting on through all of the tests, procedures, and surgery, his willingness to spend time answering any and all questions went above & beyond anything I could have expected. His meticulous planning and execution of the complex craniotomy and clipping of my aneurysm went flawlessly. It will be 2 years in August since my surgery and I have been blessed with undetectable scars and no residual side effects. When we first met Dr. Mocco, we were surprised that such a young man could be the Chief of Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai, but now understand why he was selected for this prestigious position. It is a rarity to find exceptional skills, compassion, and humility in one package, but with Dr. Mocco this is exactly what you will experience! Mary Driscoll

I had surgery at Mt.Sinai on my brain, it was a 6 hour surgery and he was very kind and helpful. He explained everything well to me even with language barrier so he had a translator come and when I was nervous and frightened he was there to comfort and reassure me. Always very polite and he helped me get better. Highly recommended doctor. He is only there one day at the clinic and he can get busy but he is well worth it.

Dr. Mocco has been one of THE best doctors I've ever met. Him and his team took such great care of me and did an amazing job with my surgery. From our initial meeting to my post opp follow- up, he always put me at ease, provided all the information I wanted, listened attentively, and made sure I left feeling comfortable and not scared of anything. His work is truly fabulous.

Dr. MOCCO is amazing. From the time you meet him he puts you right at ease. He takes the time to discuss the diagnosis and the treatment and takes the worry away. That along with his knowledge and skill makes me one grateful patient that he was on my team.

Mocco is an obviously very talented neurosurgeon who dedicates much care to the patient. When our mother suffered a brain aneurysm, Mocco helped oversee her coiling procedure & got her back on her feet within a month. This January, she returned for a clipping procedure which he personally performed- It's been a month & she's been doing very well, never complaining about headaches/impairments. Very satisfied in our experience with him. TY from the bottom of our hearts! You have saved her life!

Dr. J Mocco is an obviously very talented and distinguished neurosurgeon but what his many credentials don't show is the tremendous amount of individual care and devotion he shows the patient. When our mother suffered a sudden brain aneurysm last April, she was fortunate to be placed under Dr. Mocco's care- He oversaw her coiling procedure and helped her get back on her feet within a month. This January, she returned for a clipping procedure, which he personally performed. It has been roughly a
