In brief: Differences are few
Not all cardiologists are specialists in HTN but most have expertise in treating complex blood pressure and heart problems.
Htn specialists can be cardiologists, internists, or nephrologists (kidney). A cardiologist is expert in all types of heart and blood vessel problems.
