Dr. Mazzola helped save my son's life after an ER visit for what turned out to be Hydrocephalus with a Blockage at level of Aqueduct of Sylvius caused by a Tectal Glioma. Not only was she very helpful with explaining and documenting everything such as risks and procedure, she also demonstrated strong compassion and bedside manner as a doctor with children of her own. Thank you for saving my son's life and she is HIGHLY recommended!

Dr. Mazzola is not only a brilliant surgeon but a wonderful human being. I thank God every day that she's here on earth & she chose to do what she does! She did a beautiful job with my newborn son when she performed cranial surgery on him at 3 months old. She also had a great bed side manor & was very informative & accessable to my husband & I. Shes a mother & I had many conversations with her where she spoke to me about her own children. She cares deeply about her patients & is completely devoted to helping people heal & live normal lives. Also her staff was terrific. They helped us through every step & answered every question no matter how small or difficult. My son is 3 years old & perfect! You would never know he ever had anything wrong with him & its all thanks to Dr. Mazzola!

I will never forget that cold November morning I rushed my 10 year old son to the ER. I felt that my world was turning upside down. I take him to one hospital to be told they need to tranfer him to another hospital, as a parent you begin to panic, no one was telling you anything, only that they found a mass. At Morristown Memorial is where I met Dr. Mazzola, as a Mom herself she understood our pain, she explained to us my son's situation, she explained to us the importance of my son's surgery. My son was diagnosed with a Tectal Glioma on the Brain Stem. Though the Glioma could not be removed, Dr. Mazzola gave us hope, she gives the strength to be strong for our children. My son will live to become an adult. I cant thank her enough, I cant show her how much she helped me, she gave my son life again instead of a death sentence. Thank you, thank you for being you and always caring about your patients...Thank you... Thank you...until the next MRI and visit with you,

I also don't understand some of the comments about Cathy. Her and her staff have been wonderful to us. And if it wasn't for her, our son would not have made the recovery he did. We have spent many days and nights with Cathy and got to know her pretty well. She is well versed in what she does and if she doesn't have the answer to a problem, she looks until she finds it, which she did in our case. After all the surgeries, we followed her directions and our son made a fantastic recovery. That's what you do, follow her directions to prevent future problems. Our families have gotton together afterwards and we still keep in contact with her 6 years later. Her staff went above and beyond, answering our questions over and over until we understood. She is one of the most knowledgeable neurosurgeons we know and we've known quite a few. I would and have recommended her to others and will continue to do so.

I am amazed to see some of the comments that are on Dr. Mazzola's page. I just took my 8 year old child to her over 3 years ago. I just saw her last week and as usual, she was a blessing. The amount of care and love that she shows my son and my family. She has definitely become part of my family and has even attended my son's birthday party for the past 2 years. Every procedure that has been done on my son so far was explained thoroughly. After surgery, she visited us every day and she was even there on a weekend just to come in and pray with us. What surprised me was how comfortable I felt from the moment I walked into her office. The office always had activities, books and games that my son could use while we waited to be called in. And I felt even more comfortable when I saw all of the pictures of her family around her office. I could not recommend Dr. Mazzola or as my son calls her "Dr. Cathy" enough. If you need a Neurosurgeon, I don't believe there is anyone better.
