The tests the cardiologist wants to do are stress test, ABI and Echo. DH is listening in on phone calls and adamant that he just wants his shoulder fixed, so I'm not steamrolling him. When I asked what the reasons for these tests were doc said history of heart disease (no, it was a mild cardiac event and its followed up on regularly with no active disease), uncontrolled hypertension (102/68 and regular readings of 110/70!), and patient complaint of chest pain. That's a lie! DH uncategorically said no when doc asked if he was having chest pains. The reasons he gave for doing the tests (did I mention they'd be done at his own medical group, owned by him and four other cardiologists?) ARE NOT TRUE. DH is having an MRI in three days for the pain in his shoulder. Yes he has a say in his health, I never said his heart is in perfect health, and no, not all medical providers are ethical.
