I love Dr. Straker when I first saw him at CMMC while doing my internship. All it took was one look at his mannerisms and I was hooked. It took me a few years to find him though since I didn't know his name. I have been with him sShow moreince and now as a primary care provider, I refer my patients to him. If he's good for me, then he is good for my patients. With all my interactions with Dr. Straker, he has always been warm, approachable, informatiive, pleasant, and puts one at ease even during the most vulnerable and uncomfortable part of the visit. Thank you, Dr. Straker and staff.

Dr. Straker and Massiel De La Cruz are exceptional. I have been seen by both for over eight years and had all three of my kids delivered by Dr. Straker. Both doctors are patient. I never feel rushed or dismissed when I am there. TShow morehey always listens to my concerns, address and clearly explain things. I always feel comfortable talking to either doctors. I don't live as close as I use to and can easily find a closer obgyn, but I refuse. When you find great doctors, you will drive the distance. If you are considering this practice, you won't be disappointed.
