in Portland, TN |
He just tries to schedule tests I did not want and poo poo-ed my complaints as being anxiety until I took a calcium heart scan, at MY insistence, which score was 660 showing moderate heart blockage. I wanted an echo...only would do it with a drug stress test. NOPE! Finding another Dr.
