NJ Monthly Top Doctor 2013

Michael J. Straker, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

At Bestcare OB/GYN, Dr. Michael Straker believes in a personalized and sensitive approach to women’s health, a philosophy that is always desired but not always achieved in every practice. In addition to delivering babies, he uses minimally invasive gynecological techniques, including robotic surgery, to perform hysterectomies and fibroid removal, endometrial ablation for heavy menstrual bleeding and Essure® hysteroscopic tubal occlusion for permanent sterilization. “These types of procedures decrease complication rates and surgical bleeding,” he says. “They also allow for faster recovery so patients can resume normal activities sooner.”

Treating patients from adolescence through postmenopause, Dr. Straker is supported by an enthusiastic and experienced staff in his state-ofthe-art office. He has been using electronic medical records for scheduling, charting and patient communication since opening his practice in 2005.
