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

Has Helped Us And Others

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!! -Patty McDougall
