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
