About Our Practice

Dr. Mahoney founded Mahoney Dermatology Specialists in 2007, with his wife Erin and a staff of two. Our practice is, and always will be, a local family business. Our goal was to create a dermatology practice that was patient-focused, centering on providing cutting edge dermatology for our patients without the “assembly line” feel of many of the large dermatology practices surrounding us today. As patients ourselves, we don’t like to be rushed, and we appreciate the opportunity to ask questions about the our diagnosis and treatment. We have always sought to treat our patients as we would treat our friends and family, with kindness and compassion, but also with the most advanced and effective care. Our goal is to have a comfortable experience from the time you call the office until the time you leave to pick up your prescriptions. When you call our office, you speak with a human being. We provide skin care for large local families, sometimes four generations at the same time. We are honored to care for teachers, firefighters, local politicians, and major league athletes. Our patients from all over Tampa Bay include nurses, dentists, physicians, engineers, and local law enforcement officers. Fisherman and golfers, boaters and beach lovers are asked to have their skin checked regularly!

We have had an electronic medical record and practice management software since opening, before other offices were pressured to change by government regulations. This allows us to send prescriptions electronically, communicate with our patients via our Patient Portal, and to submit billing quickly and efficiency. Our staff goes out of their way to help patients with obtaining prescription coverage, contacting insurance companies when denials occur, and always being available to our patients. Over the years we have developed a core group of competent medical assistants and front office staff who are here to make patients our priority.

Mahoney Dermatology Specialists expanded over the past decade to add two board-certified physician assistants. Both Anna Heider, PA-C and Amber Zeier, PA-C have over 10 years of dermatology experience, including pediatric and medical dermatology.  Both Anna and Amber have trained extensively with Dr. Mahoney. In April of 2023, we were incredibly fortunate to add another dermatologist to our team: Alexis Honigbaum, M.D., FAAD. Dr. Honigbaum completed her dermatology residency at the University of South Florida Department of Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery.  She has practiced dermatology for over 5 years, both in Massachusetts and Pinellas County. Dr. Honigbaum is committed to providing the best dermatologic care to seniors, adults, and pediatric dermatology patients!  Dr. Mahoney is delighted to welcome such a talented, intelligent and compassionate dermatologist into our practice.
