I have. But any medical person knows you don't drive someone with chest pain 2 hours to a hospital. What if the patient goes into cardiac arrest?

Obviously Dr Martin can tell the symptoms and make he determination if it is serious enough to admit to PCRMC for tests and evaluation, only to be told the following day that they'll need to be transported to Barnes in St Louis (add'l $10,000 [?] in associated fees for patient and insurance to pay). I would much rather have had the best cardiologist in Mid-Mo next to me for a two hour drive, than sitting in the PCRMC Emergency Room (though they are a great crew-fast-effective-etc) for a battery of tests.

Hahahahaha. Yeah he would've known if the patient was going to have a sudden cardiac arrest. Keep thinking that.

Call someone in charge if you're for real. You talk a lot of crap on an anonymous site.

Tim Martin treated my brother in law like he was a piece of shit when my Bro went to him with a concern. My Brother in Law by the way is the nicest, classiest guy you would ever want to meet. Martin bragged about how far he jogs every day and insisted that he do the same, then made fun of the tennis shoes that my Bro was wearing and said but before you can take up jogging you'll have to get some better shoes. OMFG. I would have said listen here ass hole hows about I take what I would have given you in a copay amount and jog right over to JCP to get some new tennis shoes and while I am gone you can get fucked. Do we just have one cardiologist in Rolla? Does he think he has the monopoly on heart patients, does he think that he is God? Id say if my Bro were getting paid what Tim Martin makes he could have several pairs of tennis shoes. What a freaking ass.

but my Brother in Law was too nice and classy to say and do what I would have done. I personally dont know what he and his ex's problems are or who did or didnt do what, but anyone who treats their patients like that has no business practicing medicine. He failed his oath, and incidentally must be a very bitter and unhappy man. Good!

He's been my cardiologist for a lot of years. Never had any problems with him. He's thorough, explains everything, and is friendly to me. I trust that he's the best around these parts.

I know Tim.personally. I think.it's pretty sad that people feel.the need to talk about HE and Katies private life. He is an incredible physician with a passion for helping others. He is a wonderful daddy. The children and their best interest should always come first in a divorce. When there are safety issues......those need to be addressed.. there were safety issues for the kids! Someone had to step up and be their voice.

I don't like Barnes Hospital either if I hadn't been there to take care of my Mother she would not have had any care at all. And No I do not like Dr Martin I think he is a poor excuse for a Dr and a person. Dr Spadaro is 100% the Dr that Martin is. Opinions Vary and this is my opinion.

Dr Martin is an excellent cardiologist who have saved or prolonged the lives of hundreds of Rolla patients. Big city expertise, in a small town hospital.

Dr Tim Martin is no longer associated with Barnes Hospital. And I agree the hospital sucks as far as patient care. Sad it use to be the best around. As far as Dr Tim he is an excellent straight forward to the point cardiologist. He took the time to sit down and talk to me about my husbands condition. When his primary doctor more or less wrote him off,Dr Tim said he wasn't ready to do that and he worked with him and my husband is doing so much better. He is a good Dr

Oh geez!!!!! I am hearing from so many the treatment there isn't the se as it once was. Was speaking to a family member who lives up there and as they said there had been so many cut backs that one nurse has twice the work to do. That makes sense but not good for the patient. But my word surely they could keep better records

Dr Tim is ok for small things but I must warn you do not ever and I repeat ever go to Barnes Jewish for any heart procedure. I let him talk me into going there and they almost killed me. It took over a year of going to other hospitals and specialist's to get my health back. While at Barnes they were full in their cardiac care unit so they put me in a general ward with one nurse and over 60 patients. They tried to give me the wrong medicine and didn't give me the meds I needed. I have never feared for my life like I did when I was in Barnes Jewish. I would recommend either St John's in St Louis or St Mary's in Jefferson City. Never Ever go to Barnes Jewish unless you have gunshot wound as they treat a lot of them there. Their patient care is non existent. It's your life and your choice, but please don't let them talk you into going to Barnes Jewish or any of their affliated hospitals. They are in it for the money only!!!
Dr Tim & Dr Tom are the best cardiolist I have had I have had 3 heart surgeries & I would be dead by now 1st one was when I was 37 &now I am 50 I wouldn't have made it if it wasn't for them I do not believe they are in it for the money they both have wonderful bedside manners & compassion for patients!

I haven't been on this site in years and now I know why... I'm reading the first three lines of the above post....a little hypocrisy going on when you get to the bottom of the post. If it's sad people discuss their private life, then please stop discussing it! No one on here, myself not included, has had a front row seat to their marriage and demise... please don't comment. Tim and Katie are both great parents whom love their children, & have always put their best interest first....safety was never a concern,...it was a made up excuse to justify a controlling individual's actions. Whomever told you that rodeogirl [I'm sure Tim did because if you are in fact a rodeogirl, or any girl for that matter, he's probably talked to you and bragged about how great he is...even tho he does have a girlfriend but that has never stopped him before....(you of all people should know that ;)] is text book, medical definition of a narcissist.

So you know I was just curious... did your brother in law have any women with him at his appointment?? The reason I ask is because what I have noticed in regards to Tim Martin and his arrogance is that he shows off much more often and worse when there are nice looking ladies in the room! Wondering if he was trying to stroke his own ego while making your brother in law feel like an ass?

I believe Dr Martin can keep his pants on during a professional appointment, but he takes his pants off all over town and then in other towns even! I don't know if he has a girlfriend but if he does, I feel sorry for her.... or maybe she is just as nasty. ugly narcissitic women usually end up dating cheating medical professionals because they like the money, trips, gifts... and apparently, STDs. if you do see him for your heart condition, just make sure to make Dr Martin doesn't ask you to take your pants off.
