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.

Patient Praises

20 Minutes Made All The Difference

After 10 months of going from one specialist to another and feeling no better, a dear friend who had been a
patient of Dr. Riber for years suggested that we see him.  She spoke with him and with the severe pain my
husband was enduring he made a special arrangement to see us very quickly. He and his wonderful staff spent
about 20 minutes with us looking at all the blood work, MRI's etc. we had with us. Then he asked the question,
Itwhere are the X-Rays?" Well all the specialist and no one had ever ordered x-rays! He x-rayed my husband
immediately and announceq to us that he was in dire need of hip replacement, and was in a bone on bone
condition. We immediately made an appointment with an Orthoped~c Surgeon. When we told the Orthopedic
Surgeon this story, his remark was "Dr. Riber was your Guardian Angel". We agreed. - Marsha and Ben Bird
