Cardiologist needed: This runs in families and needs confirmation from a cardiologist, not just a machine reading or a gmo reading. If the diagnosis is confirmed, your family will need to be checked too, most likely is a misreading by a pa or family practice doc, get a second opinion before accepting discharge.
