What's is the best test to see if I got heart issues? ?

I just got my medicare card and my dad's side of the family all had heart issues. I want to check if I have heart issues since I'm still young. What is the best test to find out?

    That is something your doctor should decide, not you.  What kind of "heart issues"????  An EKG is the first test.  That will look for electrical abnormalities.  A chest X-ray can help to identify hypertrophy.  An echocardiogram is useful in identifying valve issues and many chamber abnormalities.  A stress test is part of a complete cardiac workup.

    Again, you don't tell the doctor what tests to order.
