First time I went to Dr. B (Bottenberg) he told me to stop drinking as much water as I do. I have never heard a doctor say this. They always seem to be telling you to drink more water.

Dr. B has been my physician for many years and he is the best doctor that I have ever had. He diagnosed the genetic cholesterol issue that was a major factor in the deaths of my dad and older brother. If it wasn't for him, I don't think I would be here today.
Prior to meeting Dr B and his staff, I had struggled with my diabetes and other health issues, I was constantly confused and frustrated, suffered with side effects from medications. There was always complication associated with refills, authorizations, etc. I could never get the office on the phone, get an appointment in a reasonable time, and forget speaking with my Doctor on the phone. I… See more
I first met Dr. B after an executive physical where I was diagnosed with blockage of the carotid arteries. A few years later we went through a rough patch as I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Dr. B learned some things from this diagnoses that he has add to his practice. He is a very caring individual who wants to spend time with his patience and provide them with great medical services.… See more
First time my wife & I went to see Dr. B we felt uncertain of the outcome, but as soon as he entered our room, he made us feel very comfortable & the first thing he ask us was what can I do to make your life better no other Physician before has asked us a question like that.
He is the best Physician we have encounter in Reno and Fallon. He really listens and he has made our life… See more
We have been seeing Dr. B for quite a few years now. Such a fine man. He really cares about his patients. You can go to see him and have lots of questions and be very worried about things, but he always has a good answer and explanation that puts your mind at ease. Very happy to have him in our lives.
Dr. B is the ultimate Common Sense Holistic doctor. He combines the best of Science with the real world. He is thorough, articulate and truly caring about his patients. He is reminiscent of the Doctors of the old days when they had the time and interest to really understand their patients. His connection with MDVIP only strengthens his ability to care for his patients.
