Many people don't know about the Community Clinic, which has offices in Kahului, Wailuku, and Lahaina. They are a blessing for the community, because they will accept all kinds of medical insurance. If you don't have medical insurance, they will help you get it or they will offer you a payment plan based upon your proof of income. No one looks down their nose at you here, they are just interested in making sure everyone gets the medical care that they need.
These folks are based out of Honolulu, but have offices on Maui and the Big Island. They understand that neighbor island people expect some "aloha" and they can provide it.

Gammie Home Care can supply medical equipment, including hospital beds, wheelchairs, walkers, and oxygen. They also sell lift chairs, the recliners you sit in and then a motor helps raise the chair so you can get out of it. These folks are really helpful, and will rent or sell you what you need.

Dr. Robert Atkinson is an outstanding specialist and the doctor you should see if you have an orthopedic problem with your hand. In my opinion, he's the best doctor on the island if you need to have hand surgery.
I know of several people who were evaluated or treated by this doctor, and their opinions were the same. He was rushed and didn't spend enough time with them, and he does a lot of evaluations where he was paid by insurance companies (not health care providers.) If you are looking for an orthopedist, it's my humble opinion you should keep looking.

In Hawaii, everyone knows if you get charged in a criminal case, don't fuss around. Get a good defense attorney, like Brook Hart, who has a lot of experience and wins under his belt. He may have a reputation as not being the easiest guy to work with, but he'll build a good defense case for you.
