Question? Consult!: These little boxes are not good for answering specific patient case problems. Consider a cardiology consultation here on HealthTap. The kind of consult where you ask for help within the next 24 hours works particularly well for a complex case because it enables emailing back and forth with the details.

Generally not: As there is no ischemia on your stress unless symptoms suggest angina despite good medical therapy.
