Q: I have three leaky valves, and the heart doctor said knee surgery would be risky. Should I get a second opinion?
A: It is always a good idea to get another opinion, especially when it comes to surgery. After all, it is your body, and you want to be sure the decisions made are the absolute best for you. Ask your doctor for another recommended cardiologist or visit the American College of Cardiology Web site (acc.org) to find someone near you. Blood Pressure Boosters
