    Your father is doing what most men do...deny. This type of action is the reason most men die younger than most women. We do all the wrong things and then deny the problems when they first appear. Really really stupid.

    Get dad to a good heart specialist. Don't take no for an answer.

    Your father is in denial. Your sister in medical school may be the best one to convince him. They should have determined in the ER if he had a heart attack or not and would have probably kept him unless he signed himself out against medical advice
