As a graduate of Michigan State University and winner of 'Best Veterinarian' on Long Island for the third consecutive year (2014, 2015 and 2016) Dr. Michael Funk uses an excellent set of core values to balance progressive medicine with practicality. Following Hurricane Sandy, Dr. Funk organized a relief effort for the animals of Long Island by recognizing the medical needs of animals affected by the disaster, but also the irreplaceable bond shared between a person and their companion. By blending open and frequent communication with a strong base of knowledge and experience, Dr. Funk guarantees supreme medical care for your pets. Trained and certified to perform Zeuterin, an FDA-certified non-surgical sterilization method, Dr. Funk is able to offer an alternative to the traditional neutering procedure for certain dogs. He also has professional interest in neurology and seizure management, as well as surgery involving wound-repair. At home, Dr. Funk and his wife, Bernadette, have two canine family members, Sushi and Juno. When he is away from the hospital, you may find him on the softball field or hockey rink. An avid sports fan, Dr. Funk follows Michigan State football and basketball, New Jersey Devils hockey, and New York Mets baseball.
