Patient Testimonials

“As a longtime Flagstaff resident, I am happy our little mountain town has a spine surgeon like Dr. Mahoney caring for the people here. I felt comfortable from the first appointment with him. He spent time with me explaining my options and answered all my questions, never making me feel rushed. After my successful spine surgery, I feel so blessed and grateful to have had such a competent and attentive doctor and staff.” – Tess Konomos

“Dr. Eamonn Mahoney and staff went over and above normal expectations to help me. I cannot say enough positive things to express my gratitude. When they saw the pain I was in, they pushed me through the process to get faster than normal procedures on the same day of my first visit. While I could still need surgery, my pain level is now very manageable and my confidence in this staff is extremely high should I ultimately need surgery. Thank you Dr Mahoney and staff!“ – David
