Specialties

Dr. Cynthia A Mahoney has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent

Many years ago my mother had had sepsis which did a number on her kidneys. (My mother had to live on a quarter of her heart due to a massive heart attack years before. And was diabetic). Admitted to the hospital and not doing well at all, Dr. Mahoney stepped into her care and not only saved her life then but took over her care outside of the hospital. My mother, because of the caring and drug changes Dr Mahoney did for her, lived and was happy with us and her great grandchildren. She was able to celebrate her 70 years of marriage with my dad! I would highly recommend Cynthia Mahoney MD L Padilla

Dr. Cynthia A. Mahoney MD is a terrible choice if you are looking for a proper nephrologist

If you want to see a very personable, empathetic doctor....DO NOT SEE DR MAHONEY!!!! Of the many nephrologists I have worked with, she is the most unreceptive and stubbornly opinionated on the practice of medicine. She belittles the nurses' and patients' opinions, so don't be surprised if she does not listen to your concerns. Rather than trying to review and manage your existing medications, she likely just add MORE. She belittles the nurses' and patients' opinions, so don't be surprised if she does not listen to your concerns. Even the nurse of the hospital in which I was staying would rather have her own mother be seen by the other doctors of the Chabot Nephrology Group over Dr. Mahoney.
