Welcome to Palmetto Pain Management

We at Palmetto Pain Management understand pain and how it can affect your daily activities and those closest to you.

Our goal is to utilize patients' medical histories to:

  • Correctly diagnose their condition
  • Avoid repeating previously unsuccessful treatments
  • Determine the most appropriate treatment

We are always interested in hearing your perspective as oftentimes you have unique insights into your own pain and can guide us in formulating a successful treatment plan. Hopefully we can work together to understand your needs and improve your quality of life.

Primum non nocere is a Latin phrase that means "first do no harm." This concept, perhaps the most important in the practice of medicine, is the cornerstone of our approach to patient care and guides us to find a safe pathway to help manage your pain.

We pride ourselves in having a friendly and caring staff, and our office is committed to offering you treatment options ranging from simple medication adjustments to state-of-the-art pain management techniques. In addition, we collaborate with a network of colleagues who are experts in different specialties and arrange referrals as needed.

We value our patients and the trust they place in us, and we always strive to provide the highest possible quality of care in the warmest friendliest environment.

- Ezra B. Riber, M.D.

Dr. Stanisclaus & Emily Rosenfeld are the best pain management team! They listen to my concerns and always have my best interest in mind when making any medication adjustments. Making the decision to have the Boston Scientific Spinal pain stimulator implanted was the best decision for me and it works. Thank you Dr. Stanisclaus & Emily for everything you do for me.

I must say that Dr. Stanislaus is awesome. I’ve been going to Palmetto Pain Management for a couple of years now. My back is in a terrible mess. My pain was unbearable. They never gave up on ways to manage my pain. Dr. Stanislaus changed her schedule in order to get me in for a shot in my sciatic nerve on my left side which also had Bursitis in the left hip. It worked and almost all of the pain diminished. Emily Rosenfeld, a Certified Physician Assistant, other than being the most wonderful, compassionate and dedicated medical person that I’ve ever worked with, has worked tirelessly to help improve my pain level. My nerves are really bad with Stenosis and my muscles in my back are almost gone completely. Emily has worked tirelessly to help improve the condition of my back pain. I also have arthritis in every joint of my body. Doctors and Physician's Assistants have dedicated themselves to controlling pain and it is evident at Palmetto Pain Management. In addition to their knowledge, doctors, physician assistants and staff at Palmetto Pain Management are kind, empathetic, professional, caring, compassionate, great listeners and remember who you are at every visit!

When people get to a certain age, health, pills, operations and doctors soon become a most discussed topic. When that comes up, I can hardly refrain myself from talking about Dr. Ezra Riber in Columbia, South Carolina and his very professional staff. He has been a true savior for me and many of my friends. He combines his vast knowledge and humanity with a great deal of thought to come up with the correct diagnosis and the plan for recovery. I always mention 'that patience must be exhibited in the waiting room as he is giving another patient his time and thoroughness, the same as he will give to you'. I have been thanked by so many for sharing his name. A visit with him is certainly worth the drive from Charlotte to Columbia!!Palmetto Pain Management provides you with doctors that have specialized in the study of pain management...a process that takes 9-12 years of university level study. Doctors and Physician's Assistants have dedicated themselves to controlling pain and it is evident at PPM. In addition to their knowledge, doctors, physician assistants and staff at PPM are kind, empathetic, professional, caring, compassionate, great listeners and remember who you are at every visit! (Special kudos to Emily, Certified Physician Assistant). All this and a lovely new office with plenty of parking (including ADA parking & ramp). They are the best!

I began my experience with Dr. Riber several years ago. He was so understanding of my pain. I later began seeing Emily Rosenfeld a PA-C. She is very professional and treats me with great respect. Most importantly through injections and medication I am able to deal with the severe back and neck pain that I have. They care!

After receiving no pain relief after three injections, I traveled a long distance to meet with Dr. Stanislaus. From the moment I entered the building I was treated with care and respect. After the initial intake, I met with Dr. Stanislaus. My experience was night and day compared to the physician at the other practice. She was beyond thorough and explained the MRI results using layman's words and a model skeleton. In addition, she shared another issue the other doctor never even mentioned. During the actual procedure Dr. Stanislaus explained every action along the way to ensure I understood what was happening. I would recommend Dr. Stanislaus and Palmetto Pain Management to anyone in need of excellent treatment and care, and I have.

I suffered a severe back injury and was in pain for months until I was able to see Dr. Riber. I immediately felt better after my procedure and have remained pain free for months. The staff is extremely professional and compassionate. I would highly recommend Dr. Riber to anyone in pain.

Dr. Riber is kind and caring. His staff is friendly and welcoming. I am so thankful to finally have relief from my pain. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Riber and will continue to refer him to family and friends.

After suffering an injury while working, I waited 3 years for help with my pain. I recently had a spinal cord stim trial and immediately had pain relief. This is the best pain control I have had since my injury. The staff at Palmetto Pain has always been great to me and I highly recommend Dr. Riber and appreciate all the help given to me.
