About the Doctor Luke Society

Inspired by the reference in Colossians 4:14 in which the Apostle Paul refers to Saint Luke as “the beloved physician,” the Doctor Luke Society is a unique opportunity to express esteem and appreciation to these exceptional medical professionals.

In 2004, Bethesda Health Clinic began a program of honoring local physicians through the Dr. Luke Society. Honorees are chosen because they reflect the characteristics of Luke in Colossians 4:14. Luke’s writings reflect his commitment to respect all people; his concern for the poor; and his hope for God’s mercy and forgiveness for all.
