Dr. Strecker’s roots are in Boston. Having grown up in Hyde Park, he attended Boston Latin School from grades 7 through 12. He then received his baccalaureate degree with honors from Harvard University, his medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine, and internship at Tufts University Hospitals. Dr. Strecker then ventured south to complete his ophthalmology residency training in Washington D.C. at the Washington Hospital Center where he served as Chief Resident. While in Washington D.C., he had the pleasure of training under such eye surgical notables as Marshall Parks, M.D., known as “the father of pediatric ophthalmology” and Mark Whitten, M.D., the LASIK surgeon for Tiger Woods.

Dr. Strecker is a board certified ophthalmologist who sees patients from ages one to one hundred. Even though his surgical practice is focused more on adult surgical candidates, he still sees children in his practice.

His offices are located in Cohasset and Plymouth and he operates out of his surgery centers in Sandwich and Quincy. He is affiliated with both South Shore Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth.

Dr. Strecker is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery. He is also a member of the New England Ophthalmological Society, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, and the International Society of Cosmetic Laser Surgery.

Dr. Strecker serves as an advisory board member and medical/surgical eye consultant for the Massachusetts Boxing Commission which oversees the safety of amateur and professional boxing in the Baystate. As the past chairman for the Laser Safety Committee at Jordan Hospital, Dr. Strecker insured the safe use of hospital lasers for ophthalmology and other medical/surgical subspecialties at Jordan Hospital.

Besides the practice of medicine, his passion in life involves gardening, fishing, and football. Although it has been many years since he has worn his cleats, he still enjoys going to Harvard football games reminiscing with his old Harvard football buddies about their past gridiron glory.

Dr. Strecker is married to his college sweetheart and has three wonderful children who keep him on his toes, mentally and physically.
