The fact you have cardiac symptoms plus an abnormal electrocardiogram indicates to me you should not wait two months to see a cardiologist and i would recommend you see a cardiologist as soon as possible.
Call your local hospital to speak to a financial counselor and tell them you need attention expeditiously. The hospital is incented to help you because they will be treating you in the event of a cardiac emergency and it is more economical for them to treat you before the emergency takes place. If you are having ongoing symptoms or distress go to the emergency room. By law they cannot refuse to treat you.
