Cardiologist insisting on chemical stress test

Dr thinks I am at high risk for heart attack but wants me to do a chemical stress test in case in need a cath which he also thinks I am at high risk for!
His nurse keeps saying telling me this and I said I want a consult with him before I have any procedure done and she said he has no time. He wants you to have stress test then said we will talk about it.
I have my rights as a patient to consult due to my disability of spasticity and wheel chair bound and heart failure and I dont understand why this Dr wont give me the time to consult before i take such a major step that can give you a heart attack.
