    I can't say enough great things about Dr. Mahoney. This was my first visit with her as a new patient. Dr. Mahoney is friendly and courteous while also being professional. She listened to my issues/concerns and addressed them all. She was comprehensive in her explanations and I appreciated that she provided alternatives to treatments. I'm truly grateful that she accepted me as a patient.

    Dr. Mahoney is always patient concerned and expressive regarding any of my medical issues or treatments that will make me better and fit. Her medical advice is always determined by her listening to my questions/needs exams. Which Is highly determined by her professional education skills talents research and experiences.

    Dr.Mahoney was fantastic. When she realized they were running behind she roomed me herself and given the limited time I had remaining before I had to go to work she perfectly prioritized my needs and was extremely accommodating and helpful. Excellent first visit with a new physician and someone I'm delighted to have on my care team.

    She did not remove the ace bandage that I had put on my ankle prior to the visit. This resulted in a very limited exam. I would have put the ace bandage back on myself if asked.

    The only reason I am now at UCSF is Dr Mahoney who was my Stanford PCP. And if one day (I hope it dose not happen) she moves to Nome Alaska I will buy a heavy snow boots and move all my points to Alaska Airlines.
