Dr. Gene Witiak practiced in the Lehigh Valley since 1963. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, he worked in another practice for several years. Then in 1969, Dr. Witiak founded Lehigh Valley Animal Hospital in Kuhnsville, with one other employee – his wife Joan! The practice grew, and he opened a second office at his home on Bath Pike north of Bethlehem. In 1997 he sold his former practice to its current owners and worked for them. However, in May 2016, he started anew and became the joint owner of HanoverView Animal Hospital, in partnership with Dr. Denae Ervin, working with an awesome staff of Certified Veterinary Technicians and Receptionists, who had been with him for a long time.
Over the years, Dr. Witiak saw an astounding change in veterinary medicine. Advanced imaging, dentistry, laboratory tests, specialized surgery, to name a few, have had a positive effect on the health of our pets.
In 2019 Dr. WItiak retired after over 5 decades of service to the Lehigh Valley. The staff of HanoverView Animal Hospital continue to strive daily to live up to the standards that he set with his impeccable client/patient care, tremendous compassion and vast medical knowledge.
