“Good service friendly staff”
I went to Dr Mahoney's office to speak with someone about my acne. I am a little skeptical about how much I paid. Somehow I ended up paying $70 for the visit (normally I pay $35 for specialists) but they added some extra fees to my bill. Also, I paid over $300 for a few topical creams, even with insurance and the "coupons" they gave me that were supposed to help bring the cost down. Now I am a college student and I cannot afford to pay this kind of money for some creams (none of which did any good anyways). Also, I am skeptical any time a doctor offers you a coupon for a med. This shows that they have been visited by a pharmaceutical rep, they are selling the rep's product, and THEY are GETTING PAID every time they write that prescription. So it is in the dr's best interest to push you the product, regardless of how much it costs you or wether or not it is the best product for your condition. I feel like this is what happened to me. Honestly I think it should be illegal for doctors to receive money from a third party for writing a prescription, it takes the fundamental practice of healing out of medicine and makes it more like a business- all about the money. It's totally unethical.
I've had Psoriasis since I was very
young and nothing has ever helped my condition. A couple of years ago I developed Psoriatic Arthritis. Last year I discovered Dr. Mahoney and he recommended Humira. I have had fantastic results and am glad to say I'm completely free of both the psoriasis and the arthritis. I've had absolutely no side effects whatsoever.
The experience at Dr. Mahoney's office has been fantastic. They are respectful of my time and answer all of my questions. They even helped to get me a discount on the medicine. Dr. Mahoney and his entire staff have been absolutely great! I have never been happier with a doctor's office overall.
One of the Best.... One of the best Dermatologists I've ever dealt with....and I've had quite a few. I've had severe psoriasis for over 20 years, and went through 15 years of PUVA therapy before the new biologic drugs came out. I started seeing Dr. Mahoney at the end of that 15-year period, and he got me off of PUVA and onto other therapies that worked. He's willing to try new things to find the drug/therapy that is just right for you. Very knowledgeable and compassionate. Great staff which cares. Thank-you for all you do!!
In my book DR. Mahoney is # 1.

Great Doctor, Great Staff. I have been a patient of Dr. Mahoney for over 4 years now. I have always received honest answers to my skin questions, prompt test results, and incredible care from the entire staff. Because of his honesty, Dr. Mahoney has always been truthful with me about results from procedures as well as patient with my many questions! This work ethic carries over to his staff as well. After a recent procedure, i called the next morning concerned about the healing process. The staff immediately advised me to come in to reassure me things were going as excepted. I have never received anything less than respect and compassion from anyone in his office. His professional yet approachable manner make him someone that can be trusted to do what is best to help you maintain healthy skin. Coming to Dr. Mahoney is one of the best things I've ever done!
Big Improvement with Psoriasis!. I have been a patient at West Houston Dermatology for almost 2 years. I came to Dr. Mahoney was a severe case of skin psoriasis & psoriatic arthritis. The rash, which covered my legs, feet, hands, arms & a few other body parts, was so itchy and painful that I was having difficulty walking, sleeping and even concentrating at work. Though the treatment has involved some medication trials, light and laser therapies, I can say that I am so much further ahead now! It's about 75% better! I was referred to Dr. M by another dermatologist!
Getting ready for summer. Just getting ready for bikini season I decided to get a little coolsculpting after hearing about it from my friend. The result was so immediate I might have to come back again before bikini season really starts! The staff was great that I'm really thinking about getting some laser hair removal done too
What a great group of people!. I have been going to West Houston Dermatology for about six years. During that time I have seen the same faces at every visit. These people are like a family and they make you feel like a part of it. They all do anything they can to help. Once in a while, I have to wait a few minutes for my appointments - but the reason is clear. All the people I see - take time to talk to me - from the front desk, to the nurses, to the check out staff. They really care and during this day and time - that is rare!! West Houston Dermatology is a great organization. Dr. Mahoney and his team are wonderful. My husband and son have also received great care here. I highly recommend them!
There is no way to describe the excellent care I received from Dr. Mahoney. I have suffered for years with psoriasis. I finally gave up and just felt I had to suffer with it. I did not go to a doctor for almost ten years. I had allowed it to rob me of my quality of life so much that my wife gave me an ultimatum. See a Doctor or else! A close friend of my wife's gave her the name of her dermatologist. She said Dr. Mahoney would change my life. HE DID!! He listened to me, reassured me and explained treatment options! When I left, I had HOPE! It has been two weeks and I feel so much better. I am starting to see a significant improvement. I've never left a review - but this is too good not to share.
bad feeling. I don't really recommend this place, i had a prescription for acne that completly irritate my face and when a call to let them know, the nurse was very rude on the phone. instead of telling me to come so they can see it and give an other prescription she told me to come in four day and i cannot make it in that day i told her. she told me very rudly that's the only day she has or have to come in 2 weeks. she doesn't care about how i look. I have my face not looking good at all i don't even wanna go out. they make me very sad:(((
