What is the best way to get a stress test ekg I called up

Resolved Question:

What is the best way to get a stress test ekg? I called up the cardio wing at the hospital and they told me it would have to be requested by a doctor. So I went to my primary care physician and asked them and they said you don't just ask for one. I'm thinking well should I wait until I'm running around a track and having chest pain? My heartbeat feels somewhat irregular when the rate is elevated and I have risk factors.

Should I make an appointment with a cardiologist?
