For more than 50 years, Levittown Animal Hospital, located in Levittown, NY, has cared for Nassau County's cherished companions with the highest quality veterinary services. Dr. Meyer ("Mike") Kaplan and his brother, Dr. Warran Kaplan purchased the hospital in 1974. After Dr. Warran Kaplan pursued other veterinary endeavors, Dr. Meyer Kaplan continued to grow Levittown Animal Hospital into one of the premier veterinary facilities in the New York City Metro area. As one of the first veterinary surgeons on Long Island, Dr. Kaplan received patient referrals from all over the region. He often hosted visiting veterinarians looking to observe the advanced surgical techniques being employed at Levittown Animal Hospital. In 1993, Dr. Kaplan invited specialists to practice out of Levittown Animal Hospital who would later go on to found Long Island Veterinary Specialists. As a child, Dr. Funk's recalls memories of his own family pets being beneficiaries of the routine and specialty services available at Levittown Animal Hospital, which permanently impacted his desire to become a veterinarian. After Dr. Scott Sofferman's tenure, Dr. Dennis Leon became the owner of Levittown Animal Hospital in 2005 and cultivated many of the advancements in patient care in place at the hospital today. He remains a friend of the practice since he left for the West Coast in 2015. Before leaving, and unbeknownst to both parties, Dr. Leon, Veterinary Practice Partners, and Dr. Michael Funk were all hoping Dr. Funk would take Dr. Leon's place and it was a natural fit. During Dr. Funk's service at Levittown Animal Hospital, he became a partner of the hospital in 2016 and partnered with VPP again in 2022 to develop and found Oath Animal Hospital. By late 2022, Dr. Funk signed on as Medical Director of Levittown Animal Hospital where he plans to support Levittown Animal Hospital and embrace the future of veterinary medicine.
