Doogie Kamealoha MD season 1 episodes list:
For prodigy Dr. Lahela "Doogie" Kamealoha, juggling a budding medical career with the daily challenges of teenage life is never easy. She's excited to celebrate her 16th birthday and experience some of life's firsts, such as passing her driver's license test and attending a high school dance (with a cute surfer named Walter!). However, her responsibilities at the hospital and her loving but overprotective parents, Benny and Clara, are bound to disrupt her plans.
Lahela is determined to solve professional and personal mysteries. An athletic young man named Caleb, who is visiting Hawaii to hike the famed Stairway to Heaven, has lost all feeling in his legs for no apparent reason, and tests results are inconclusive. While Lahela is over the moon after sharing a first kiss with Walter, she's unsure of his true feelings. Lahela applies the scientific method to solve both enigmas and ultimately discovers that matters of the heart can't be explained by logic.
Now that Lahela has her driver's license, she yearns for a little freedom — specifically, access to her mom's car and a trip to Starbucks with her best friend, Steph. However, Clara is hesitant to hand over the keys. When Lahela's patient, local celebrity weatherman Rip Tide, recommends that she take more risks and get behind the wheel of her own life, Lahela takes his advice quite literally. She takes the family car without permission.
Lahela wonders if it's time to define her relationship with Walter. That thought is suddenly sidelined when Walter is rushed to the hospital for an appendectomy — that falls on Lahela to perform. After Clara's work conflicts with yet another family milestone, she decides to go part-time, much to everyone's surprise. However, a big announcement at the hospital may change her mind. Both Lahela and her mom confront the challenges of being strong, smart women in today's world.
Clara is determined to lock down the Chief of Staff position. While she tries to win over the outgoing Chief of Staff, Dr. Choi, Benny learns that Lahela is pursuing a new passion. She's intrigued with DripFlip, a website sneakerheads use to buy and sell limited-edition shoes for profit. He jumps at the chance to enjoy quality time with his daughter and impart wisdom from his stock-trading days. When Lahela takes it too far, Benny shares a lesson about balance and what's most important in life.
Lahela struggles to figure out where she fits in; she's not a normal doctor or a typical teen. She's too young to attend Dr. Lee's party with her medical colleagues, yet she's hosting an alumni booth for career day at her former high school. When Lahela decides to join the popular dance team at the high school, tension builds with Steph. At the hospital, Lahela tries to reconnect two estranged sisters for a kidney transplant, and finally realizes where she's fit in all along.
Lahela and Clara work in sync and share a vision for their medical careers. That abruptly changes when Dr. Arthur Goldstein, a Seattle surgeon on the cutting edge of medical technology, visits the hospital. Benny is gearing up for his favorite surf competition only to discover that he's been placed in the seniors division. While Lahela contemplates a fellowship to study alongside Dr. Goldstein, Benny considers surfing 12-foot swells with Walter and his buddies to show he's still got it.
