oxygen levels/heart rate
Is is possible to have a great heart rate, 99% oxygen saturation but still have a heart issue?

I have 4 stents and take two blood pressure medications, 2 cholesterol medications, Plavix, Crestor, Zetia, aspirin and
various vitamins and minerals.  

My heart rate and oxygen levels were good at the Doctor's office but I have pain down my left shoulder and feel dizzy.
Should I be concerned?

The concentration of oxygen in blood vessels is fine being 99% but if an artery has a severe blockage, then that oxygen isn't going anywhere. The heart pumps oxygenated blood around your body, which means it is doing its job, but the heart obviously needs that fuel supply too.
So the simplest answer to your question is 'yes'.
