Dr. Straka is a Clinical Radiation Oncologist based at our 4S Ranch Treatment Facility. He treats a wide variety of cancers including Head and Neck Tumors and Prostate Cancer. He also has an interest in the treatment of Dupuytren’s Contracture, a non-malignant (benign) condition.

His research interest focuses on improving patients’ and caregivers’ experiences as they receive cancer care. He has developed novel, patient-facing smartphone apps, and he believes that current and emerging technologies will synergistically improve patient care and ultimately deepen the doctor-patient relationship.
