About the Professional and Compassionate Leaders at GaPA

Charles Lobeck, DVM—Co-Owner and Operator

Raised in Topeka, Kansas, Dr. Charles Lobeck originally intended to have a career in advertising and marketing. In 2001, he received his undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas and started his journey into his desired field.

However, Dr. Lobeck’s true passion has always been animal care, so he went back to school and received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Georgia. Since 2009, he has provided exceptional veterinary services to residents throughout the Atlanta, GA, area.

As an experienced veterinarian, Dr. Lobeck serves pets and their owners from when they receive their first kitten or puppy exams until their later years, when chronic pain is a near-daily occurrence. Feeling blessed to care for animals through every life stage, Dr. Lobeck felt end-of-life care was a natural step in his career.

Dr. Lobeck and his loving wife have three children, and they are also pet parents to Lego and Batman, the family’s dog and cat, respectively. Dr. Lobeck likes to travel and dine in local restaurants in his spare time. He’s also a cheerful fan of the Kansas Jayhawks and Georgia Bulldogs.

Meredith Stallings-Pavlovsky, DVM—Co-Owner and Operator

Dr. Meredith Stallings-Pavlovsky is a skilled veterinarian born in Kansas and raised in Blairsville, GA. During her youth in Blairsville, Dr. Pavlovsky spent many of her days exploring and playing outdoors with her siblings. Even at a young age, she had a passion for animals, regardless if they were furred, feathered, finned, or scaled.

However, it wasn’t until a high school science fair project that Dr. Pavlovsky considered a career in veterinary services. To provide his daughter with the research necessary for completing the project, Dr. Pavlovsky’s father introduced her to a local veterinarian in Ellijay, GA.

Spending time in that veterinary clinic is what prompted her to explore a career in veterinary services. Dr. Pavlovsky worked in the clinic through high school and her first two years of college. By then, she knew she wanted to help animals while preserving the environment.

Dr. Pavlovsky received a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master’s in Art of Teaching from Georgia College and State University. Later, she accepted an invitation to earn a doctorate in mixed animal medicine from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Since 2011, she has been practicing veterinary care in the Atlanta, GA, area.

Today, Dr. Pavlovsky still maintains a love for animals and the environment. She and her husband are married with two children. When she’s not enjoying the company of her family, pets, and friends, Dr. Pavlovsky likes staying active, reading, and exploring the world.
