The decision to undergo coronary artery bypass surgery should never be taken lightly, particularly when the patient does not have symptoms, per se. You should seek a second opinion for your father's care. Consider seeing a cardiologist at another institution. Be sure to bring any images of angiograms as well as the stress test results. You're doing the right thing to make sure that your father's care is well-tailored to him!
