R and stata are clearly doing different things.
Look up how stata calculates its standard errors (which I note are described as '_robust_ ') and compare that with the documentation for the R function.
Without knowing anything about stata or your data set, my guess would be that R's quasibinomial family is allowing for overdispersion and stata is not.
