Patient Praises

Relief After 3 Years

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.   -Russell Gibbs
