Edward W. Howard ,

  • General Cardiology
  • Interventional Cardiology
  • Vascular Disease

Edward Howard specializes in interventional cardiovascular disease and is board certified in interventional cardiology, cardiovascular diseases, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology and peripheral vascular ultrasound interpretation. He has a special interest in the management of coronary artery disease, critical care cardiology and peripheral vascular disease management. 
Born in the United Kingdom where he completed his early training, Dr. Howard became interested in peripheral vascular diseases when he realized that this is an underserved area of medicine. He witnessed high rates of uncontrolled diabetes and limited (or no) access to modern limb salvage techniques which exposed him to the frequent and devastating personal and societal consequences of amputation. The combination of these experiences, plus years of U.S.-based training in critical care cardiology and cardiac interventions, led to his passion in treating ischemic heart disease, angina and extending those same life-saving techniques to efforts to prevent limb loss. 

Dr. Howard also enjoys running and recently completed his first marathon. He also likes to travel with his family, and enjoys supporting Arsenal FC, the premier league soccer club of his native city, London.
“As a general and interventional cardiologist, my goal is to preserve the lives of the desperately ill in the hospital and to help my patients in the office to achieve health and well-being in a personalized manner.”

 “I believe listening to patients is so important because I want to know how their condition is impacting them as an individual.”
