B. Bottenberg, DO, FNLA
Dr. Bottenberg is a warm, low-key physician who, I believe, is in practice primarily to help his patients, period. He asks questions and listens to your answers. He is against ordering all kinds of "extra'' tests and, when possible, has always prescribed the least expensive meds. He is not real big on prescriptions. He has been my doctor for over 10 years and I would recommend him, highly. One caveat ... he has joined an outfit out of Florida, MDVIP, which requires a large up-front fee be paid so that he can provide 'life style change' and 'prevention' medicine to his patients. This I do not understand because I believe he already provides that. He is a wonderful person.

Every time I made an appointment to see Dr. Weed, I ended up seeing her PA. So when I wanted to see the PA instead of her, she axed me as a patient. Does this doctor have a huge ego or what - just because someone prefers to see the PA after she kept on referring me to the PA. GEEZ - go to someone else!!!

Horrible medical care. After two years as a patient they failed to notify me of my PCP leaving the practice. Not a word when I was in the office. Not a phone call, not a letter, not even an e-mail. They waited and let me know by silently disallowing routine prescription refills which ultimately forced me to go without needed meds for one week. During phone inquiries they did little more than give me the run around, shirk responsibility and cause further delays. In the end I had to go to urgent care to get all my prescriptions refilled. I am very grateful they were not in charge of my diabetic medical care.

Great doctor. We live in Reno, but will not switch locally because this doctor is honest with us. I recommend going here.

Will not refer anyone to him he is arrogant, belittles patient, humiliates, and has no knowledge of doctor patient etiquette. Go to different doctor in office

Dr. Michael Song and his staff are exemplary. Very competent, caring and capable. It is such a relief to see a Dr. like Mr. Song. His first response is to the welfare of his patients.

I switched to Dr. Aldrich about 3 years ago due to a referral from several coworkers and it's the best decision I've ever made. He is attentive, caring and kind. His best attribute? he LISTENS, and we all know how frustrating are doctors that just always know better than you. He listens to all of my concerns and addresses each and every one of them until I feel comfortable enough with the outcome and I ALWAYS leave that office feeling better about any given problem I have, he also doesn't hurry you and takes time to sit in the office and work everything out, making you feel like your business is appreciated and not a bother. He also does on-call during the weekends and if there is something pressing you need to speak to him about he can talk over the phone at home and write any given prescriptions from home, which saved me big time one saturday with an asthma attack.

I too was treated poorly by Dr. Pincock. He did not fully explain why he was prescribing medications, and became angry and condescending when I asked for him to elaborate. He ended up walking out of the room, without finishing the exam or answering my questions. After a forty minute wait just to see him for less than ten minutes, I will definitely not be returning.

I read a few bad reviews on Dr Pincock so I was honestly worried at first. He's not the type to give ya a hug or anything but he wasn't rude at all. I thought he was actually very nice. He's there to do a job- not make friends. Secondly-I had no issues getting pain medicine to take home ( which I had also read). The procedure was quick and not as bad as I had thought it would be after. The front desk staff seems distracted though. No phone call to remind me of appt or tell me I shouldn't eat before hand or that I needed someone there in the office for the entire procedure....but I was able to work those out. She also way over quoted me. But they are nice :)
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
