Dr. Ronald Stas needs no introduction and has been the pillar of Lakeview Animal Clinic for nearly 30 years. He has been a mainstay in the Latrobe community ever since purchasing the practice in 1987 and has become somewhat of a local celebrity. His compassion for animals spans generations and he continues to practice progressive and exceptional veterinary medicine. Dr. Stas earned his veterinary medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania, class of 1985. Shortly after starting his veterinary career he purchased Lakeview Animal Clinic from the late, great Dr. A. Wayne Mountan in 1987. Dr. Stas picked up right where Dr. Mountan left off and has grown the practice into what it is today. His experience in veterinary medicine is unmatched and he continues to learn new techniques and modern standards of care on a daily basis. Dr. Stas is still practicing both medical and surgical veterinary medicine full-time as well as offering the much needed voice of experience and guidance within the practice. Outside of the office he enjoys spending time with family and friends as well as a multitude of outdoor activities, gardening, and tinkering around his farm. Throughout his career he has been involved in many local organizations and youth education programs and has served the Latrobe community and his local church for the past three decades.
