An MI comlicated by AF and congestive heart failure
This sounds like a pleuritic type of pain. This can caused by a lung problem, but also by an inflammation following a heart attack, called Dressler Syndrome.
Whatever the cause, he shouldn't wait to see a doctor, so you must insist, go to a local ER or change to a doctor who is more attentive.
An MI that is complicated by AF and a form of heart failure called congestive heart failure, is serious business and should get a lot of attention in order to prevent other complications!
Hope this helps
