Patient Reviews
Oct 01, 2019
Dr. Straka was a real help to my hearing problem. I had fluid behind the right ear drum and the last "doctor" just talked down to me and tried to blame the entire issue on me. Well, Dr. Straka was not like that at all. He was professional, thorough, and cared about the treatment solution he suggested. He ended up putting a tube in my ear, but only after he checked my sinuses (not done before) and inspected the ear drum. Putting in the tube caused a little discomfort and he was concerned. Over all, I felt I had visited a true health professional. I will recommend Dr. John Straka to anybody. Go there!!
