Stressing the importance of stress tests.
Dick showed no symptoms of a heart problem. A casual question from his primary care physician led Dick to a stress test. What that test showed was not so routine – a 99% blockage in a main artery that led to immediate bypass surgery at Oklahoma Heart Institute. His praise for the entire medical team throughout his surgery and recovery could not be more heartfelt. Neither could his encouragement to anyone 40 or older to have a stress test done. It could save their life, just like it saved his.
