I had heart disease, i am a black female and the doctors at our local training hospital did not take my symptoms serious enough. They almost killed me. Thank goodness my mom and sister are registered nurses and was able to give me great advice.
Also i did a lot of research on my own and read about other people's treatment. That made me able to talk to my doctors and get better treatment. To date my heart disease has been abated. i must keep a watchful eye on the problem bcuz I am also diabetic.
JUST MY TWO CENTS.
