Why does it differ between states or even cities?  Worse yet, why does it differ at the same exact hospital when two different people come knocking at the door?  Additionally, how does a person find a doctor or dentist at home or abroad?  What are the qualities that make a good doctor?  Three of us Lauder-Preneurs (Alejandro-Portuguese ’09, David-Chinese ’09, and Gabriel-Portuguese ’09)…
