In brief: EKG isn't everything

Congratulations on having a normal ekg but how's your vision? Hearing? Reflexes? Gait? Coordination? Weight? General health? There's a lot more to passing the test and your primary care doctor hopefully knows you best.
Think of him/her as the "captain of the team" who coordinates all your care.

In brief: Formality?

Check with your work place, must be a formality that primary md needs to be involved.
