Jul 8, '09 by pokey82muchThank you Lisa. I understand the whole specialty thing, but I was looking for more of the social differences between the two cultures, especially Hawaii with it's own unique and diverse population. For example, (I don't want to make any assumptions/generalizations, but...) w/ Hawaii being known for it's laid-back attitude, does one also see that as a pt, nurse, doctor?

I'm honestly interested in hearing your reply.) Mahalo!
