Membership medicine built on a foundation of trust.
Michael Hundert, MD, has joined Castle Connolly Private Health Partners to deliver personalized, comprehensive care.
Welcome to our Concierge Program
Collaborating with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners (CCPHP) has allowed Dr. Hundert to create a more optimized healthcare experience for you. The Membership-based or “concierge” model we practice gives your provider more time to build the strong doctor-patient relationships that are essential to helping you achieve optimal wellness.
The structure of our Membership Program is designed with one simple focus: you.
DR. MICHAEL HUNDERT
Dr. Michael L. Hundert’s desire to practice as an internist stems from his reverence for his Jewish parents, who survived the Holocaust and encouraged him to strive for greatness. Dr. Hundert was raised in Chicago and went to medical school at Rush Medical College, graduating in 1975. He then completed an intensive internal medicine residency in 1978 in New York at the Cornell-affiliated program at North Shore University and Memorial Hospitals. In 1978, after receiving his internal medicine board certification, Dr. Hundert began his private practice. In addition to caring for his diverse patient base, Dr. Hundert was the director of critical care medicine at Flushing Hospital from 1980 to 1990. After obtaining a board certification in critical care medicine, he then decided to return to primary patient care full time. Because of the nature of his practice, Dr. Hundert became board certified in geriatric medicine in 1992, with two subsequent geriatrics board re-certifications in 2004 and 2015.
Dr. Hundert is currently a member of the American College of Physicians, The Medical Society of the State of New York, American Geriatrics Society, and Society of Critical Care Medicine. He has also been elected as a fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP), a lifetime award for achievement. Dr. Hundert has been listed as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor® since 2014, as well as in Newsday and other local newspapers as a top physician in the Little Neck community. Dr. Hundert also serves the community by volunteering as the medical director of the Little Neck – Douglaston Community Ambulance Corps.
He credits his mentors—Dr. Donald Tarun, Dr. Milton Levine, Dr. Philip Lieberman, Dr. Lawrence Scherr, and Dr. Ralph Mastrangelo—as those who have helped to shape his career in medicine. In addition, Dr. Hundert acknowledges the support of his children, Joshua, Gregory, Julie, and Jess; his grandson Max; and most of all, the only person who believed in him and shared every day of his life, his wife, Amy.
