Connie Lutkevich, MD“People here are down to earth and trusting. This is a great place to work and I can’t imagine being in a better place to raise a family and work than live here on Kauai.  Why did I want to become a doctor? At age 17 I needed to have my appendix out and I remember waking up after the surgery, feeling way better and the admiration I had for my surgeon. I remember thinking, … that is what I’m going to do.  I’m going to become a surgeon … and I did!”
