  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  the  evangelist,  was  a  Gentile.  The  date  and  circumstances  of  his 
  conversion  are  unknown.  According  to  his  own  statement  (Luke 
  1:2),  he  was  not  an  "eye-witness  and  minister  of  the  word  from 
  the  beginning."  It  is  probable  that  he  was  a  physician  in  Troas, 
  and  was  there  converted  by  Paul,  to  whom  he  attached  himself.  He 
  accompanied  him  to  Philippi,  but  did  not  there  share  his 
  imprisonment,  nor  did  he  accompany  him  further  after  his  release 
  in  his  missionary  journey  at  this  time  (Acts  17:1).  On  Paul's 
  third  visit  to  Philippi  (20:5,  6)  we  again  meet  with  Luke,  who 
  probably  had  spent  all  the  intervening  time  in  that  city,  a 
  period  of  seven  or  eight  years.  From  this  time  Luke  was  Paul's 
  constant  companion  during  his  journey  to  Jerusalem  (20:6-21:18). 
  He  again  disappears  from  view  during  Paul's  imprisonment  at 
  Jerusalem  and  Caesarea,  and  only  reappears  when  Paul  sets  out 
  for  Rome  (27:1),  whither  he  accompanies  him  (28:2,  12-16),  and 
  where  he  remains  with  him  till  the  close  of  his  first 
  imprisonment  (Philemon  1:24;  Col.  4:14).  The  last  notice  of  the 
  "beloved  physician"  is  in  2  Tim.  4:11. 
  There  are  many  passages  in  Paul's  epistles,  as  well  as  in  the 
  writings  of  Luke,  which  show  the  extent  and  accuracy  of  his 
  medical  knowledge. 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
