Dr. Lorie Fleck named president of the Southeastern Section of the American Urological Association

Dr. Lorie Fleck, a urologist with USA Health University Urology, has been inaugurated as the first female president of the Southeastern Section of the American Urological Association.

Fleck also is an associate professor of urology and an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine at the University of South Alabama and director of the urology residence program at USA Health.

The Southeastern Section of the American Urological Association is the largest geographic region, comprising almost 2,100 urologists practicing in nine Southeastern states, Panama, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

In 1992, Fleck was the first female urology resident at the Medical College of Georgia, where she earned her medical degree. In 2014, she became one of the first two urologists in the Mobile area to earn subspecialty board certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.

“There have been those who felt that urology was a ‘man’s world,’ and that I would never have many patients or be able to build a successful practice,” said Fleck. “But there were many others who have served as mentors and encouraged me throughout the years. I have found that when you give your best, your time, your ability and try to remain kind and caring, then anyone can build a successful practice, even if you are in the minority.”
