Meet Corey Howard, M.D.
Initially double-board certified in Internal Medicine Digestive Diseases and Nutrition, Naples Bioidentical Doctor Corey Howard, M.D. brings multiple dimensions to his philosophy and business of Lifestyle Medicine. As Founder and Director of Howard Health and Wellness in Naples, Florida, he brings this multi-dimensional expertise to his clients, offering programs designed to help people live a better life.
Corey Howard, M.D. asserts that “Most physicians today are reactive, focusing solely on disease management”, and argues the need for a more proactive approach – comprehensive programs focused on overall health, the prevention of disease, and the attainment of optimal health and wellness.
Dr. Howard 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.
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. This was when Dr. Howard realized that something needed to change. After alifestyle change, 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.
He used his knowledge in endurance training and nutrition (after losing almost 50 lbs) to his patients and evolving his practice to prevention and nutrition. This mission taught him a great deal about nutrition and strengthened his commitment to help others discover the transformative power of lifestyle.
