Not your usual request, but can anyone recommend doctors for the following:

Urologist - that over 50 thingy

Spine doctor - follow up to a surgery I had a year ago

Thanks 🙂

My understanding is that there is only one spine doctor and he is on stt and does not take Medicare.   Puerto Rico has some. Or stateside. Hubby goes to pavia In Puerto Rico. You call them up. Tell them what you need and they make the arrangements. I think they have an office in gallows bay. Viya has an online phone book to look up the number.  They set up the flight. The hotel room if needed and all the dr appointments. And they are super nice. We have been going there for well over five years 

things are backed up due to covid   Hubby has been trying since covid started to get something going.

@speee1dy Thanks, I did find one at VIOrtho, he's on island on Thursdays from STT and also at the same location I saw a pain management specialist last Monday.  I'm not at medicaid or medicare age for sometime.  They have a few specialist there as well, as they mentioned a cardiologist too as I have a history of high BP unfortunately and was able to get off all meds prior to my surgery through weight loss (40 plus pounds) and high intensity workouts.
