For more than half a century, Peninsula Pathology Associates has provided services throughout Eastern Virginia from their state-of-the-art, hospital-based lab at Riverside Regional Medical Center. Our 2021 Distinguished Providers - Dr. David Smith, Dr. Theresa Emory, Dr. Michael Schwartz, Dr. Lucy DeFanti, and Dr. Damian Tagliente, Rodney Slyter, PA (ASCP), HTL and  Katie Simpson, MS, PA (ASCP) - each embody the philosophy of patient-centered remarkable care at Riverside.

In 2021 there were 28,837 surgical patient cases in the Riverside health system that were diagnosed by the pathologists of Peninsula Pathology Associates.

As a collective, they believe in giving back and recognize how philanthropy plays a vital role in enhancing patient care and providing health programs in our communities. Pathologists are the physicians other clinicians consult to help diagnose diseases, develop medical treatment solutions or determine the state of a patient's health using the latest diagnostic tools available. Patients may have no contact with a pathologist, but they are an essential part of any health care team. As leaders in their field, they are widely known for having the highest standards of excellence, reliability, utilization of cutting-edge technology, and a staff with a scope and depth of experience second to none.
