Sometimes doctors think themselves all wise, like Dr. Shah, but are unwilling to do some tests to find the problem. I've called, emailed and waited on results and some kind of feeling that they care about my plight, but to no avail. I would recommend only to someone with a definite heart problem that is already diagnosed.
