My appointment at Peninsula Radiology was the best medical experience I had in years. When I came in for my test, Dr. DeMeo and his assistant, Jamie, where both very professional, and took their time to carefully explain everything to me. They made what can normally be a very unpleasant experience, very nice. They went well beyond what they needed to, in order to make me feel very relaxed and comfortable. In addition, everything was done on time, and efficient, I was never kept waiting. When I come across such good service, I feel like I ought to share it. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Demeo, Jamie and the rest of the team at Peninsula Radiology, they do an outstanding job. – Dennis Ankeney

“I recently had to have a study done at the hospital. I was an add-on patient later in the day, and my study actually ended up carrying over into the next shift. All of the staff I dealt with were incredibly professional, friendly, and comforting. Dr. Curran was so compassionate and caring. He asked me questions about my symptoms so he could make sure all possibly causes were evaluated to ensure I had the best study possible. He explained what he was doing and then took the time to answer my questions to the best of his ability at the time. Everyone and everything was so efficient, my referring doctor had the results for his review the next morning. I appreciate the time Dr. Curran took with me and the way he made me feel like I was the only patient he had to deal with, when in fact, he had several. I have no doubt each and every patient felt the same way I did and that is because of Dr. Curran’s exceptional bedside manner.” – Diane
“Last month I had to have a myelogram. I have had numerous procedures on my back, some quite unpleasant. My previous experiences made me pretty apprehensive about having another procedure, even though I am very familiar with it and knew what to expect. Dr. Baylous went above and beyond to make sure I was as comfortable as possible at all times. His caring and compassionate bedside manner helped put me at ease. Both Dr. Baylous and his exceptional team were so patient with me and reassuring throughout the entire procedure. A few months prior I had a similar procedure that was so painful. The exceptional skills Dr. Baylous possesses was evident because I didn’t feel a thing. I hope I never need to have it done again, but if I ever do need another, I won’t hesitate to have Dr. Baylous do it. Thank you Dr. Baylous!” – D. Forbes
“My visit with Peninsula Radiology was the most pleasant experience I have had at a hospital. It was unfortunate that I had to go in the first place, and I was frightened of the procedure. However as soon as I talked with Dr. Newsome, things changed. She took the time to explain every single detail, making my anxieties disappear and putting me at ease. Her and her team cared about my comfort, and made sure all my concerns were addressed. Dr. Newsome is just absolutely terrific, and she really knows her stuff! She has an incredible personality and truly knows how to work with people, and her team is just wonderful. They all took such good care of me. There isn’t anything more I could’ve asked for. I was even treated to a fresh cup of coffee after my procedure. I am so thankful for the care that Dr. Newsome and her team provided for me. I would highly recommend them to anyone that needed one of the services they provide.”– Josephine Kulick
“Dr. Pettus is an outstanding example of a kind and caring professional. On a recent visit, he explained all procedures in detail and on a level that was understood. He took took much time to do so and even stopped what he was doing. Dr. Pettus and his team stayed after hours late at the end of the day to do follow up procedures so that I would not have to worry and wait until the next week. The next day, Dr. Pettus called with results of the procedure. Riverside is extremely fortunate to have such a kind and compassionate individual who is outstanding in every way. I recommend him as a true champion of caring. Thank you Dr. Pettus for being there for me and everyone else who has the fortune of having you in their corner!”
“I have received care from Dr. Newsome multiple times in the last few months and I can without a doubt say that the care I received from Dr. Newsome and her surgical staff was nothing less than exceptional each time. Dr. Newsome was so caring and compassionate, it felt like I had a friend with me the entire process. The staff calmed my nerves, treated me like family and made me feel like I was the only person who mattered. They took the time to explain every detail to me and make sure all my fears were put at ease. I would definitely recommend this doctor and team to anyone and everyone! I can never thank you enough for all you’ve done and the excellent care I received! I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Riverside and the surrounding community are so fortunate to have such wonderful people caring for their needs.” – E. Simpkins

Lyna has been happily married to Don Eagan for over 50 years. They moved to Newport News in 1962, and have been living there ever since, except for a three-year stay in Japan in 1967.
The family they built together has been her biggest joy in life. She took great care in raising her sons, and is so proud they turned out to be gentlemen, just like their father. Today, Lyna and Don are not only grandparents, but they have the pleasure of also being great-grandparents.
In recent years, Lyna has been dealing with muscular skeletal problems, which she has been treating with massage therapy. However, when the pain became unrelenting, and not even physical therapy was able to relieve some of her discomfort, she scheduled to have and MRI done.
The MRI was on a Friday, and the diagnosis was made over the weekend. Lyna was coming back on Monday for the procedure. She had a compression fracture in her spine and would need a Kyphoplasty. She was impressed at how fast things were moving along, but even more impressed with the kindness she received from the doctors and staff. Dr. Newsome explained everything completely and simply, so that any of Lyna’s anxieties about the procedure were alleviated.
Lyna considered what happened after the procedure a “wonder”. Her incessant pain had disappeared, and she was able to live her life as before. She is so grateful for the care she received, and thankful for everyone involved. It was such a success, and she could not speak more highly of the doctors and staff at Peninsula Radiology.
