We are a Doctor's office serving Hawaii Residents only.
We are not a dispensary.
At Hawaii Compassionate Care, Hawaii residents seeking evaluation for medical marijuana registration can meet with a highly qualified and empathetic physician who will guide them through every step of the state’s process. Dr. Baiko and the entirety of Hawaii Compassionate Care are committed to providing their Kauai and Big Island resident patients with the best and most educated access to medical cannabis certification to help them regain their quality of life.
Dr. Kevin Baiko achieved his Doctorate from the Eastern Virginia Medical School and has practiced family medicine since 2000, establishing his first clinic, Big Island Mobile Clinic (which then became Hawaii Compassionate Care) on the Big Island of Hawaii in 2009. He opened his practice on Kauai Island in 2010. While working with patients, Dr. Baiko observed that many narcotics that patients used were responsible for terrible side effects and substance addiction. When researching alternative options, he discovered that cannabis has proven to be a much safer and less addicting medicine than most, if not all prescription drugs on the market today. He vowed then to stop prescribing narcotics for pain management or other ailments where cannabis could be a much more efficient substitute. Since this change, Dr. Baiko has successfully treated over 2,000 patients, become a certified Diplomat of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine, and helped his patients obtain a higher quality of life by reducing their dependence on medications and alleviating their symptoms and even some ailments completely.
The Hawaii Compassionate Care office is a clean, friendly and accessible space for any patient seeking medical marijuana evaluations and registration. The doctor evaluates both medical history and physical wellness for each patient, new or established, to determine qualifications for the Hawaii State medical cannabis registration laws. Passionate about medical cannabis’ improvements over concentrated narcotics, the doctor and clinic staff work with patients to find how medical marijuana can best treat their symptoms as well as taking the time to explain the science behind its effects and differences between various cannabinoids and consumption methods. Risks of medical cannabis use, rules pertaining to it's use, and suggested individualized treatment options are also covered during the appointment..
The Hawaii Compassionate Care office encourages Hawaii resident patients to call with questions regarding fees for the 329 marijuana card registration process. Discounts are available to renewal patients, and Dr. Kevin Baiko at Hawaii Compassionate Care is more than happy to answer any patient questions during and following evaluations. Patients are seen by appointment only.

Kauai is one of the Hawaiian Islands, nicknamed "the Garden Isle” due to its vast area of tropical rainforests. The Na Pali coastline is a cinematic staple in Hollywood films, and the island attracts millions of visitors each year, passing through the Lihue Airport. The Huleia National Wildlife Refuge lies adjacent to the Menehune Fishpond and the Huleia Stream, a bit further south of the Puakea Golf Course and Kilohana resort. The Island boasts many beautiful national parks, including Kalepa Mountain Forest Reserve, the Wailua River State Park, the Lihue-Koloa Forest Reserve and the Alaka’i Wilderness Preserve, all framing the volcanic mountain peak of Kawaikini on Mount Waialeale. All across the beaches of Kauai, Hawaii Compassionate Care is here to provide patients in need with access to medical marijuana certification.
We are by appointment only. Our hours vary so make sure to call us in order to see the doctor.
