Your call, I guess: There may be something he/she picked up that you didn't know to share, or he/she may simply be seeking to avoid liability if you have a major rhythm problem. Do you have symptoms that trouble you? Are you hypertensive? Why were you seen? It sounds like a frank chat is in order. Often the best treatment is "nothing" and ultimately it is your choice.
