About Dr. Corey Howard
Dr. Howard was born in New York but has been a Floridian since 1982. He attended the University of South Florida in Tampa where he graduated with a Bachelor in Science and was Cum Laude. He attended the University of South Florida College of Medicine (now the Morsani College of Medicine). After medical school he was an intern at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Long Island Jewish campus and then returned to Tampa to complete his Internal Medicine Residency. After completing a year as the Chief Resident in Internal Medicine he completed his fellowship in Gastroenterology. During his time as a resident and fellow he served on the Medical Executive Committee of Tampa General Hospital and was the President of the House Staff Association which had almost 800 resident and fellow trainees at the time. He moved to Naples in 1996 and began his Gastroenterology practice. He obtained additional training in Functional Medicine and completed a 300+ hour Professional Cooking Course on Plant Based cooing through Rouxbe with the world famous vegan Chef Chad Sarno.
Dr. Howard had a shift that began in 2005, when he found himself significantly over weight, out of shape and over stressed. He was mountain biking in Park City, Utah with his wife and his best friend, and just could not keep up. This was when Dr. Howard realized that something needed to change. After performing over 10,000 procedures in his gastroenterology practice he decided to moved from a procedural based practice to focus on health and wellness, Dr. Howard focused his practice on educating patients about health through essential lifestyle behaviors including nutrition and fitness and literally applied everything he was recommending in his practice to himself. By then, Dr. Howard was regularly training (running, biking and swimming), lost almost 50 pounds and was working with several athletes, specifically on their nutrition for endurance sports. Dr. Howard became an Ironman triathlete in 2009 finishing Ironman Florida in the top third overall. This endeavor taught him a tremendous amount about nutrition and sports medicine, and strengthened his commitment to help others discover the transformative power of lifestyle.
As an internist and diagnostician, Dr. Corey Howard, practices primary care for adults and his practice includes the evaluation and management of allergies, diabetes, heart disease, hormone care as well as full health evaluations and disease prevention. He is your full service doctor to get you healthy and keep you healthy.
Dr. Howard is currently the President of the Florida Medical Association and serves as the Chair of the Board of Governors of the FMA as well. He is often called to testify on behalf of physicians and patients in Tallahassee and actively promotes the need to put HEALTH back into HEALTHCARE.
Dr. Howard brings multiple dimensions to his philosophy and business of Howard Health and Wellness. He incorporates the principles of Lifestyle Medicine in his daily practice, asserting the need for a more proactive approach focused on overall health, the prevention of disease, and the attainment of optimal health and wellness. It was when healthcare began to focus less on prevention and more on prescriptions that Dr. Howard decided to make his desire to take evidence-based medicine and make it understandable and fun to each person he cares for, while teaching people how to live a healthy life.
Dr. Howard focuses on the need for his patients to be empowered and to take responsibility for their health. He created Howard Health & Wellness as a place to grow in mind, body and spirit and live beyond well while caring for all of the medical needs for his patients. He is an inspirational speaker and mentor to many who want to change and become the architect of their own lives, and is also a published author (fiction) and accomplished jazz musician.
