My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a farm kid growing up in a small community, I developed a profound appreciation for life which lead me to medical school. It is truly an honor and privilege to work as a physician. Although I do enjoy the challenges of helping people overcome their illnesses, I find the most satisfaction working with my patients to create and maintain healthy lifestyles; which allows them to live life to the fullest. The MDVIP practice model allows me the time to practice medicine the way I was trained and always thought it should be done.

With nearly 25 years of practicing in this community, I have developed relationships with local specialists to help me care for patients with difficult or special needs. I am affiliated with the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Bottenberg

from Diane in NV March 26, 2020 for B Bottenberg, DO, FNLA

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. He explained that when it was stated that we need 8 cups of water a day, people to not add all of the things that they drink that is not water. Because of this we end up drinking a lot of water and end up… See more

Thank you for always being available to answer all my questions whether in your office or on the phone. You are so caring and helpful. When I called to ask you a question about my 4 year old great grandson and his medical problems, you gave professional advice on his medications. His doctor had prescribed medicine for him which had caused him to be depressed and agitated. I called my… See more

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.

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

from Rod & Lorraine in NV March 15, 2018 for B Bottenberg, DO, FNLA

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.

from Peter in NV March 11, 2018 for B Bottenberg, DO, FNLA

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.
