In brief: Doctor can examine

A person with left chest pain must see the doctor right away to find out why.
He should be going to the E.R. If he cannot reach her doctor. If it turns out to be a heart problem or heart attack, a collapsed lung, a pneumonia, a blood clot in the lung, bad heartburn, costochondritis (inflammation of the rib joints), etc..., he will be in the right place at the emergency room.
