Severe Psoriasis

I was diagnosed with Psoriasis in August of 2016 and after seeing (7)Dermatologists and (1) Alternative Medicine doctor in the Katy and Houston areas, I found Dr. Stephen Mahoney on "youtube.com" while searching for Best Doctors in the Houston and it's surroundings areas that treat Psoriasis. By the time I met Dr. Mahoney on Oct. 30, 2017, I had a severe case of Psoriasis, I was covered in Plaque Psoriasis, Guttate Psoriasis and Inverse Psoriasis from my head to my ankles. The only places left unaffected were my hands, feet and face though I was starting to see signs of Psoriasis in these area as well. Once Dr. Mahoney examined me he decided to act aggressively with my treatment. He started me on "Humira" since my Insurance insisted that I try that particular biologic. Also prior to seeing Dr. Mahoney I had also tried "Otezla" which is in pill form but unfortunately after only (4) days of being on it I got off of it due to a bad side effect which caused me excruciating leg cramps every night. I stayed on "Humira" for (4) weeks with no change at all and that's when Dr. Mahoney decided to have me try "Cosentyx" which is another biologic. However this biologic targets the IL- 17A receptors which cause the inflammation of Psoriasis. Finally after only one week of being on "Cosentyx" my skin started to improve miraculously and even thought my Insurance denied my use of "Cosentyx" till I tried other medications they preferred me to use, I continued with "Cosentyx" and am now 100% clear after only (5) weeks of treatment. All I can truly say is after trying all the creams, steroids, antibiotics, shampoos, diet restrictions and OTC meds, etc. I give thanks to Dr. Mahoney and his staff for helping me feel like a person again full of energy and life and I pray that with continued once a month treatments this Psoriasis nightmare I went through stays in remission but if not I know that Dr. Mahoney will help me find another treatment. For all those that read my story and are affected by Psoriasis or know someone who is please seek treatment as soon as possible before it gets out of control like mine did and seek the advise of Dr. Stephen Mahoney with West Houston Dermatology. I highly recommend the wonderful job he does and the patience he has with his Patients plus my Husband and I will always be forever grateful. Anna A. from Katy, TX

Eczema relief!

After years of trying to find a dermatologist that could ease my daughter’s severe eczema, we found Dr. Mahoney. After only our first visit, he put her on a treatment plan that had immediate positive results. He went outside of the usual steroid creams and ointments and put her on an oral medication that has been working. She has suffered with severe eczema since she was around 6 and now at 11, she is finally getting some relief.

Accessible knowledgeable dermatologist

I have had a few derms over the decades and Dr Mahoney is by far the best I've seen. His office staff is great, his PA's are very knowledgeable, and Dr Mahoney is second to maybe few in the country. Aside from running a little late on my appointments sometimes, everything else is the tops.

Nice and Sharp Guy but Doesn't Take the Time

I am heading back to his office for my third diagnosis after the first two addressed only secondary issues. I can't seem to get him to even examine the problem thoroughly as--my sense--he is over-extended. The downside is that I have infected others with a parasite that was not diagnosed.
