About Nassau Pediatric Associates

Your Pediatric Home Since 1953

Nassau Pediatric Associates first began caring for the children of our community in “The House Down The Block” in 1953 with Dr Harry King leading the way. As the practice expanded Dr Milton Spinner joined Dr King in 1960 and the families of the neighborhood welcomed them into their homes as house calls were the norm. The small practice in the small office continued to grow and welcomed Dr Frank Cappelli to the group in 1970, after he returned from a tour of duty in Vietnam.

By 1984 the practice had outgrown the “House Down The Block” and moved into new accommodations on Dogwood Ave . House calls were no longer the norm as parents brought their children to Nassau Pediatrics from all over the New York area. With the move to the new “Red Brick Building With The Green Front Door”, the practice added Dr William Kuncewitch in 1985 and continued the practice of compassionate care to the children of our community.

Drs King and Spinner retired in the 1990s and Dr Elizabeth Katz joined the group in 1994 as our first female pediatrician. Dr Dan Camillery became a member of the Nassau Pediatric team in 2001.

After 42 and 30 years of service to the local community , Dr Cappelli and Dr Kuncewitch retired . Dr Blonder and Dr Tavlan joined with us in the summer of 2016 keeping up with the tradition of quality and compassionate care. Because illness never takes a vacation, Nassau Pediatric Associates is always available to our children- with seven day a week care, urgent hours on Sunday mornings and holiday mornings, phone availability 24/7 with our physicians answering parents’ concerns.

We are proudly affiliated with Cohen’s Childrens Hospital at LIJ in New Hyde Park, Winthrop Childrens Medical Center in Mineola and North Shore University Hospital at Manhasset.

We are proud to be such an important part of our children’s families and lives. If you are interested in having your family become part of our family, please call us at 516 481 3660 and set up an appointment.
