Cardiologist 's  Response
Thanks for writing in. I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your question with diligence.
I think you should be concerned to the extent that the investigations which have been advised to you, you must undertake. If these turn to be normal then this computer generated 'borderline' will be interpreted as normal. If any of the investigation is abnormal you will get to know what should be done before any disease develops and thus the disease can be prevented. Among the various data of EKG report you have written unconfirmed Left Atrial Enlargement is of any significance others are normal variants. Good Luck

Best Wishes
