I have been to Carolyn Merritt twice. She is good and helped me with my problem. 778-skin (7546)

We go to San Juan. Dr. Raphael Garcia Martine, Jr.. He's in the VI phone book yellow pages. Went to Mr. Merritt once, but prefer Dr. Martine. He does a much more thorough exam, and the plane ticket and office visit costs about the same as the office visit here. Any lab work is MUCH less expensive in SJU.

i guess it depends on what you're looking for. I went to see Carolyn Merritt for skin issues, i know that Dr. Daniel Johnston (who is a GP)does some dermatology. There's also the Plastic Surgeon Dr. Moorman and Saint Croix Plastic Surgery & Medispa (340.227.2778) that do dermabrasion.

I have been to Dr. Merrit for a Melanoma check up. It ended up costing alot because she took off a bunch of moles she said that I didn't need.
None of them were melanoma. She burnt one off my back that hurt for 2 weeks, I think she went to deep.
I have to get a check up soon and I was thinking of trying Dr. Moorman this time.
