I think that there's no specification of doc format. Pdf and doc are also
different class of formats. So you can extract text (with ghostscript
frontend ps2ascii and hope in right encoding), and pictures. Typesetting
of word document is your work.

Maybe conversion pdf to html and import of html to word can be better
way - but again, you go from stronger language to weaker.
