J. Wayne Burris, MD, MPH, FACEP

Dr. Burris is a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician and Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians with over 10 years experience providing care in emergency rooms in California and Hawaii.  He attended medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel-Hill and completed his residency training at Loma Linda University Medical Center & Children's Hospital.  

While working in all three emergency rooms on Kauai, Dr. Burris found that he treated numerous patients with minor illnesses or injuries that could have easily and safely been cared for outside the ER.  Patients spend valuable vacation time driving to hospitals and sitting in waiting rooms, seeking help for their minor medical needs, often ending up with enormous bills.  Recognizing the need for a better alternative, Poipu Mobile MD was born.  Dr. Burris seeks to help people with their basic urgent care needs within the comfort and privacy of their home, hotel, condo, or vacation rental while sheltering them from the expense and stress of a trip to the ER.

When Dr. Burris is not treating patients you can find him surfing at his favorite breaks in Poipu, running in preparation for the next Kauai Marathon, or spending time with his wife and children.
