In brief: See cardiologist
Typically an exercise ekg is used to evaluate the heart under stress.
This would be done if there is a question whether you can handle a stressful event such as surgery. It also could be done if there is suspicion that you have arterial blockage of your heart. All of these are determined by a cardiologist.
