I was wondering if anyone knows of any cardiologists, or even internal medicine physicians, in the Folsom, CA area who would be especially attentive to the needs of an athlete. I developed a bit of chest discomfort after a race this weekend, and a trip to the ER revealed an irregular heart rate and some EKG changes since me previous exam 2 years ago, necessitating a further evaluation by a cardiologist.
I want to try and avoid seeing someone who is going to give me a blanket statement of "no exercise", and will help me make decisions while considering my lifestyle.
I'm fairly new to the area, do not have a primary care doc, and am unfamiliar with the local medical community.
Thanks in advance for any references you can provide.
