Peninsula Radiology has always made the patient experience a priority. Dr. Pettus is an outstanding physician, said Dr. Dennie Bartol, a Vascular and Interventional Radiologist and senior member of Peninsula Radiological Associates. A patient recently said: “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 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. Riverside is extremely fortunate to have such a kind and compassionate individual who is outstanding in every way.“
