If your ten-year heart attack risk is less than 10%, don’t get a screening stress test. This is often included in an executive physical, which is essentially a colossal waste of money. Do yourself a favor and skip the executive physical, and use it to take your loved one on a mini-vacation, courtesy of MedHead 🙂
