Suggest treatment for stomach pain

My husband (age 75) has been getting stomach pains and a feeling of nausea after overheating (playing golf, working in the garden). It starts when he sits down after overheating and lasts about 3 minutes. He also has coronary heart disease. Should I contact his primary care physician who is a gastroenterologist or his heart doctor?

Hi,
From history it seems that this problem might be due to some coronary problem like angina pain as it appears after heavy exercises.
consult cardiologist and get EKG done.
Meanwhile avoid heavy exercises.
Ok and take care.
