Family Nurse Practitioner Paul Burris has joined the medical team at the
Mountain Grove Medical Complex, located at 500 East 19
th Street, just south of Highway 60 in Mountain Grove. The clinic is an affiliate
of Ozarks Medical Center.
Burris joins clinic physician Michael Ball, DO, and Family Nurse Practitioner
Connie Armstrong in providing care to patients of all ages with chronic
and acute medical problems. Patients can be seen by appointment or the
facility offers a walk-in clinic from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week
for the treatment of minor urgent illnesses and injuries such as cuts,
sprains, burns, allergies, eye injuries, earaches and colds.
“I entered the field of nursing in hopes of making a difference in
somebody’s life,” Burris said. “My goal at the Mountain
Grove Medical Complex is to provide the best care possible and create
lasting bonds within the community. The new extended hours and walk-in
clinic will be a great benefit to the community so that they can receive
care close to home seven days a week.”

at OMC. Most recently, Burris has been a provider at the OMC Mammoth Spring
Clinic. Prior to becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner, he was a registered

patient care during surgical procedures.
“I have enjoyed working at OMC over the years and I am happy to be
a part of the organization’s Mountain Grove location,” he
said. “The employees of OMC work very hard in order to ensure the
best patient care possible.”
