TYLER, TX (KLTV) - At a time when affordable healthcare is a common topic in everyday conversation one local group dedicated to offering physical and spiritual healing is celebrating its mission.

Bethesda Health Clinic has been offering its services to East Texans in need since 2003. Thursday, one of the doctors instrumental in establishing the clinic was honored for his efforts. Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Todd Raabe is credited with having the caring spirit needed to help those in need.

"Clearly this was God's project," said Dr. Raabe, with Azalea Orthopedics. "It wasn't our project...the hundreds and thousands of people who received healthcare that weren't able to receive elsewhere is truly the blessing in Bethesda."

Dr. Raabe was surprised with the Dr. Luke Award at his office at Azalea Orthopedics.
