Dr Funk has been my Dr for 30 years! He and his staff have not only taken care of me, but my whole family. He is a skilled physician, and cares about his patients. Dr Funk has care for my children since they were infants, and now they are in their mid twenties and he continues to provide care for them. He is one in a million <3

Wow, after being a patient there for years (since I was born) they told me I could no longer be seen. I hadn't been seen for a couple years (2012) as I had been in Florida but the rest of my family has continued to go there. I used to know everyone on staff and everyone used to be very friendly and accommodating. Not any longer

Dr. Funk says...

I practice Family Medicine in a private office setting.

I care for newborns to geriatrics. In the 1980's, I practiced obstetrics and those babies are now adults and bring their children to my practice for care. 

In addition, sports medicine has been part of my practice to include working with the profession soccer team when in DE with continued involvement in the Blue- Gold Games that support Special Olympics.  

Since 1986, and recurring every year have been voted Top Doc by Delawere Today. 

In 1993, I was elected President of the Delaware Academy of Family Physicians and again elected President in 2015.  

I am a preceptor to Jefferson University medical students and Nurse practitioner students from various programs.  Educating our future providers.

I am an avid runner to include the Boston Marathon.

I enjoy spending time with my family and playing with my grandchildren.
