D. Russell Locke, M.D.

Dr. Locke is a native Floridian. He attended Florida State University where he was selected for the Program in Medical Sciences. During this time he was awarded the opportunity to pursue an accelerated path leading to a Bachelor of Science and completion of the first year of medical school. The remainder of Dr. Locke’s formal medical education was completed at the University of Florida where he received the degree, Doctor of Medicine in 1983. He also completed his surgical and urological training at the University of Florida and is certified by the American Board of Urology. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Locke was actively recruited to the Ocala area by Dr. S. A. (Moses) Shashy, founder of one of the oldest urological practices in the Southeastern United States. Upon Dr. Locke’s arrival to the area in 1988, he developed a uniquely progressive and innovative approach to urologic healthcare. During this time, he introduced numerous technological advances and surgical techniques, which had regional impact on the diagnosis and treatment of urologic disorders.

Through this experience, the concept of a comprehensive approach in the diagnosis and treatment of urologic disorders utilizing the most modern and innovative techniques was formulated. To date, Dr. Locke has devoted his career to the practice and development of this method of urologic healthcare.
