Algernon O. Steele, MD
I speak: English
My gender: Male
Where I practice
I am a native of southwest Georgia. I grew up in Albany, where both of my parents were college professors. My undergraduate degree in biology is from Albany State College. I attended Emory University for medical school and my Ob/Gyn residency was completed at the Medical College of Georgia. My wife is also a physician, and we met each other during residency. My first practice experience was with the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) in Cleveland, Ohio. After two years with the NHSC, I was in private practice in Cleveland for three years. The warm weather of my native state brought me back to Atlanta, and I have been in practice here since 1993. I have two sons and have been at Kaiser Permanente since 2000.
About my practice
I practice general Ob/Gyn, and I chose this specialty because of the wide variety of medical challenges I see each day. I like surgery and am constantly amazed at the advances in minimally invasive surgery and office procedures. My practice involves taking care of women during pregnancy and dealing with a wide variety of gynecologic problems. My goal is to approach each member as an individual and to tailor my treatment plan to her unique circumstances.
How I thrive
I try to practice what I preach by finding time to exercise at least three to four times per week. I enjoy reading and listening to audiobooks. I like to play golf, despite not being very good at it. Spending quality time with my family has always been a top priority for me.
