ABOUT Dr. Bertolini:
After practicing in group practice for many years, Dr. Bertolini formed the Cheney Ridge Family Medical Group in order to enjoy practicing quality friendly family medicine. His goal is to treat the individual patient like family. While working with my father and mother at our corner family drug store in West Point, Nebraska, “I learned the importance of taking time with the individual patient.” I started out working at the soda fountain, graduated to prescription delivery, and pharmacy technician while working in high school with my father and mother. My early experience with people and their medical needs at my family’s drug store has helped me throughout my professional career. Some of my individual interest in treating patient’s medical problems includes newborn care, pediatric/adolescent care, asthma care, preventable cardiology/hypertension treatment, and sports medicine.
