Anxiety disorder or heart disease

I have been experiencing symptoms such as pounding feel (on the chest), shortness of breath, occassional palpitation, etc. especially when I get tensed/excited. Looks like I have anxiety disorder but I want to meet a doctor to rule out heart conditions. However, for some reason, I feel nervous about meeting a doctor. I fear that on entering the doctor's room, I might get tensed and experience breathlessness, palpitation,etc. I feel if I can contact the doctor over email/phone,etc and introduce myself before actually meeting the doctor, I would feel better. Since I live in Chennai, can someone help me in this regard?
