Review: Adobe Family Practice - Rober...
Grateful

While it is true that Robert Walantis of Adobe Family Medicine can be on the gruff side, it is also true that he is a very good health care practitioner. Two years ago I was (unknown to me) suffering from Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I had been to 3 doctors with my symptoms, one a general practitioner, one ear, nose and throat doctor, and my gynecologist. All did blood work, but my only diagnosis was gastric reflux. I also consulted an alternative health care doctor, who diagnosed me with yeast. Robert Walentis was the 4th health care professional I consulted. He spent almost 3 hours with me, ordered the correct tests, and the next day was able to diagnose me with tumors in my chest. He paved the way for me to have my first appointment with my great oncologist within the week, and after being treated with the right chemotherapy, I am now fine. Just goes to show, when people are passionate about their work, they can sometimes become emotional about it, but I am very glad he was there when I needed help.

I have to agree with the majority of the posts because I experienced very similar to what is described here. I feel that I threw my money away going on the HCG program. I went to see my primary physician after going through the program and not losing anything. I had asked the blood test results be sent to my primary and they were never received. They were requested by my doctor and she saw all the numbers were normal whereas Walantas told me my thyroid and hormones were off, and I was pre-diabetic. He never showed me the actual numbers on he tests. He prescribed expensive bio-identical hormones, thyroid meds. I felt even worse! The other thing is my insurance wouldn't pay for some of the tests he requested. Also, he asked I take the blood tests while not fasting. I have always had blood drawn for all tests while fasting. I could kick myself for going to him. I learned a very expensive lesson. I too feel sorry for his staff because I heard from them how awful he can be. Such a shame.

Everything said about him is the truth. Stay away from him..he was arrested for hitting hi wife recently. He also writes prescriptions like they are going out of style. He is sick and abusive. I too have seen his anger and he wastes time telling Rodney Dangerfield jokes.

BSN NP... Does that stand for Bull Sh*t Narcissist Nurse Practitioner? Seriously, this guy is going to be in jail in NO TIME. He has NO boundaries, he hates women and he will NOT help you, he will only hurt you. I agree with the comments that he is rude and abusive. He is unethical as well. Robert Walentas is a VERY scary person. Stay far, far away from this man- he is mentally ill.
this is exactly TRUE!!!! THIS POST TELLS AND REVEILS THE TRUTH. THIS DOUCHE, TOLD MY WIFE SHE HAD A HEART ATTACK, BECAUSE SHE WAS 20 LBS OVERWEIGHT. TO ADD INJURY TO INSULT, MY WIFE IS 5'6 135 LBS. HE WANTS TO SELL HCG SHOTS, TO PEOPLE TO SUPPORT HIS HABBIT.$650 FOR 40 SHOTS OF WATER. OH, WAIT ITS ACTUALLY 4 DRIPS OF PLOCEBO IN A SHOT. THIS IDIOT IS WORSE THAN MENTALLY ILL. HE NEEDS THERAPY AND REHAB

I have been his patient since he bought the practice from Ira. Robert has his failings. We all do.
He has helped me through many different maladies over the years.
Does he like patients who lie to him? No!
Will he put up with it, or allow them to freely lie? No!
Was he arrested? Yes, he was. He returned to his home and his wife pulled a gun on him. When taking it away, she was struck.
He was not charged, nor will he go to jail or prison for defending himself. When the police responded, they found a second loaded hand gun hidden under a pillow on the couch where his wife was seated. Yet, sadly he was the one arrested. It took some convincing by him to keep the D.A. from charging HER!
He is a retired military clinician. He can be abrupt and opinionated. We argue on occasion and yes his jokes can be tedious.
I know others who also see him and have heard no complaints.
Is he for everyone? No.
That does not give everyone the right to spew crap in ignorance!
Looking for medical assistance? Go see him and judge for yourself. If he is not what you are looking for, move on.

The whole point of this forum is to review (honestly) the quality of care we've recieved from Robert Walentas. In an effort to warn people who are considering seeking his help, we use this forum to discuss our complaints and misgivings about him based on our experiences with him, having been a patient. Many of us have already been to him and know others who have had a bad experience, as well. We have every right to try to help others make an informed choice about their medical care and steer clear of health providers who may be delivering less than optimal services. I personally believe that such an angry and unstable person could and probably does abuse his power to some extent and we have every right to let him know that such behavior will not be tolerated in this community. If he wants to stay, he should clean up his act. If he wants to be treated as a professional and with respect, he should earn that respect by treating his patients with genuine concern and more kindness and care. Also, he is not retired if he still runs a practice.

Yes, he does lie. I recognize his snarky comments in a recent post. One of his favorite descriptive words is crap. Walantas obviously posted a comment in his own defense.

I feel sorry for the wife because if he acts this way in public, he must be REALLY scary in private.

He already found another wife. His girlfriend is his new nurse. It's so disgusting to call and hear her pitiful voice. He hates women and talks down about them. He sure enjoys a pap smear though. Do not go to this wanna be doctor. His office is dirty. He left my mom waiting 3 hours while he stayed in a room with the nurse???? Gross!!! He had patients very upset and a few even walked out. His poor secretary didn't know what to do she was about to cry. He yelled at her for interrupting them.

According to NM court records he is currently being sued by a patient for malpractice, surprise surprise!!!!! Our community does not need this in our town.

His girlfriend obviously wrote this "we argue". It's just a matter of time before he marries her and then finds another mistress.

This man got my sister addicted to pain medication and now wants to cut her off cold turkey!!! He is the devil!!

I got into it with his mistress today. She is back and acting like a nurse. I found out she does not have any credentials to be a nurse. I have reported both of them!!!

He is not a doctor!!! BEWARE!!!! He will hurt you! DO NOT SEE this man. He hits women, is being sued see www.nmcourts.com see his mug shot on santa fe county detention web site.
He goes through new employees every other day. He does not pay them, give them a lunch break or any breaks for that matter!!! He verbally abuses all of the women that work for him.
Larry Barker should do a story on him!! He has more wifes in TX. I have read all of the negative comments and can believe every one of them!!!

We are new to Santa Fe and someone recommended this clinic. Boy, what big mistake! We waited for 3-4 hours and I feel stupid that I fell for the weight loss HCG program. It's a little too late now because its been 3 weeks and I have only lost 8 pounds; due to my 1 hour cardio at the gym and eating salads and I'm always hungry, definitely not because of those stupid shots. Yes he is very rude and obnoxious and thinks he is some hot shot doctor! I'm definitely making sure everyone sees that mug shot because he should not be practicing! BTW he didn't fix my husband's bronchitis! What a quack!!!!

I think the reason that he is mistakenly known as a doctor is because he probably registered somewhere online as an MD. When you search his name on google, he shows up as a doctor. He is an Nurse Practitioner. He probably moves around a lot because he keeps destroying his own reputation. One customer at a time. He is a disgusting person who should not be in the healthcare business at all. He should be selling shoes at the mall. I wonder how much longer the citizens of Santa Fe will have to put up with him...

The lady at the front is the one stealing. I saw her and Robert fighting earlier this week when I was there. She stole money from a patient and she walked out on him in front of all of us. The two guys that worked their walked out on him too!!!! And the girls quit!!! A patient can hear a lot sitting hours in his waiting room!!!!

I have an appointment with him tomorrow but after reading all these comments I am definitely canceling! Wow I can't believe this guy is still being allowed to practice??? I read his court records and he is being sued for malpractice!!! Thank god we can research him on the web before going!!! When I made or should I say tried to make the apt. It took 2 days to get in touch with someone. The lady finally answered and said they were short handed. She was complaining about the employees walking out on them. I thought it was very strange being that this woman does not even know me!!!
