I agree wholeheartedly. Arm yourself with your own research and questions. I recently had a routine Chest CT and, aside from the worsening Bronchiectasis (which I had already sensed), the CT also showed significant calcification of my coronary arteries. Since I had recently experienced more chest pains, I asked my pulmonary doctor at Mayo for a referral to a cardiologist, which he did. Long story short, after a heart catheterization 9 days ago, he found that my main coronary artery had a serious blockage and put in a stent. Wouldn't have found it had I not pursued things on my own….
