He was having significant pain in his left shoulder. It wouldn't go away. No matter what he did. It woke him up at night. He took pain medication but the pain did not go away.

He went to one doctor.

Then he went to another doctor.

Then he went to a third doctor.

One of the doctors he went to did not want to take an EKG. The patient begged him to.

He pleaded. Finally, the doctor relented and took an EKG.

The doctor read the EKG and told the patient that everything was fine. He told the patient his heart was perfect. That was just the beginning of this patient's problem. The doctor misread the patient's EKG.
