About Dr. R. Patrick Lucas

I joined Hawthorne Medical Associates in 2005 and am originally from Cochran, Georgia. I enjoy church and family activities, as well as outdoor hobbies, especially involving horses. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the members of this community in such a meaningful way.

I'm also proud to serve as Medical Director of Compassionate Care Hospice and as President of the Crawford W. Long Medical Society. I previously served as the Chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine at Athens Regional Medical Center and on the Medical Executive Committee here.
