Dr. Mazza specializes in back and neck injuries and pain with interventional, non-surgical spine care as well as sports medicine and prolotherapy.

Every good athlete has a game plan. According to physiatrist Dr. Steve Mazza, so do good doctors.

“A lot of patients with spine and sports injuries can get passed from doctor to doctor and between specialists before they ever get the treatment they need," he says. "I use a more holistic approach to piece together each patient’s complex puzzle and develop an individualized treatment plan. Most patients feel a sense of relief at having this ‘game plan’ as they move forward."

Dr. Mazza specializes in back and neck injuries and pain with interventional, non-surgical spine care as well as sports medicine and prolotherapy. He is also a team physician for Lafayette College and Pocono Mountain East and West High Schools. Dr. Mazza pursued a career in sports medicine because he wanted to have the skills to help people.

Dr. Mazza Takes the Time to Explain Procedures
“ I have been a patient at your company since 3/10/2011. I have to tell you that the staff at your East Stroudsbug facility are among the best I have ever encountered.  Especially Dr. Steven Mazza, since the first time I saw him, a very positive therapeautic atmosphere was established.  Dr. Mazza takes the time to explain the procedures he is recomending and the reasoning for his recomendations.  Dr. Mazza is indeed a great doctor. I feel so confident with him that I recomended him to my wife and other friends and co- workers. My wife is a psychiatric nurse and is not impresed easily. In closing please let him know how grateful I am for his services and also that, in my opinion, he is an asset to your company ”

Separated From The Rest
“ In December I went to Care on Demand and was seen by Dr. Seth Burkey, who had a picture taken of my spine and referred me for an MRI both accomplished in the same week. I had pain from my sciatic nerve down to my right ankle. The following week I met with Dr. Steven Mazza who reviewed the MRI, prescribed Prednisone and gave me option. The tightness around the right leg was alleviated when I received injections by him in my lumbar spine. Lisa Costa explained the process the day of the procedure and took me to the OR and was supportive during the injections and brought me back after the procedure. She was friendly, welcoming and professional in her approach.While my own physician’s office took over a week to even set up a referral for me, Coordinated Health gave me immediate attention through the efforts of the parties named above and their staff. If I need further care I certainly would go to Coordinated Health in East Stroudsburg. ”

Outstanding Spine – Physiatry
“ I have been a Patient of DR. Mazza since 2009 and he has performed numerous Radiofrequencies denervation on my facet joints. When my stenosis became an issue , the MRI didn't indicate that surgery was necessary. Dr Mazza monitored my condition and after it worsened he said the hell with the MRI you need decompression surgery. Through family connections the head of Orthopedic surgery at Penn did the procedure although he also felt that the MRI suggested that I wasn't an ideal candidate. After the surgery DR Arlet said I should thank my doctor since it turn out that I needed multiple levels decompressed and that the MRI was worthless.Thanks Dr. Mazza for getting to know your patients and for empathy John Keane ”

Excellent.
“ For a long time I had pinched nerves back l5 s1. Never had time or idea how to get it fixed. It was a blessing I met Dr. Mazza. Since the summer I had major back pain. It is now fixed. Dr Mazza diagnosed my back issue and I felt safe with his findings. Dr. Wagner did the surgery December 7th. Now I'm doing amazing. I don't do testimonials but Dr. Mazza made me great again. My outlook and mood has changed big time. I don't walk with a club foot now. ”
