.without seeing an ECG or with no being a cardiologist

I know my wife has been misdiagnosed with various things, which were later overturned or re-diagnosed as something different when we went to a specialist. She was even misdiagnosed as having asthma once for what turned out to be a benign heart valve issue. Always get a second opinion, that's my opinion.

For heart murmurs, the family doctor's advice was to take a pill called (IIRC) something like Isosorbide dinitrate, and it will pass.
it seems a bit odd to me to advice anything without seeing an ECG or with no being a cardiologist, but I thought because he has numerous years of experience behind as a family doctor.
What do you guys think ?
