Lynn Sanderson, VMD grew up in Nanty Glo, PA.  He earned a B. S. in Animal Science from The Pennsylvania State University in 1974.  In 1978, Lynn graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. He began his veterinary career at a general practice in Pittsburgh, PA, where he also did work at the Pittsburgh zoo.  In 1980, he joined The Richland Veterinary Hospital as an associate.  He became a partner at Richland Veterinary Hospital in 1991 and the proprietor in 2006.

Lynn's driving force is to minimize any stress a visit to the veterinarian may cause the patient or the owner.  Having so many years of practical experience, he still realizes the value of continuing education to always be aware of the latest medications and techniques as it allows him to provide the best quality of medicine possible.  In keeping with his belief that there can be a benefit to advancements in technology, he brought MLS Laser Therapy to Richland Veterinary Hospital to provide patients with additional treatment options.

Lynn resides in Portage, PA with his wife Paula of 33 years and their dog, Roo and cat, Rainey.  They have a son who is married and practices law.  When not practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Sanderson enjoys fishkeeping in both aquariums and his pond.  His gardening interest has created a beautiful property where they can enjoy wildlife from birds to bears.
