I think I might have some minor skin cancer, or at least a big ol' mole that I want removed.

Does anyone have some idea as to how much it'd take to go and see a dermatologist here in BZ? from a recent thread it seems like Drs. Julitta Bradley & Peter Craig are the two Dermas that everyone recommends... Are they really expensive? How much should I bring with me for an initial consultation?

I would suggest the same two docs you mentioned above. Call their offices and ask for rates

Both are worth recommending, Dr Bradley quickly refers on and eases the way if she thinks her patient would benefit, Dr Craig (223-7870) recently gave me effective cryogenic treatment to remove a crop of moles. Around Bz$200 for both consultation and treatment, including liquid nitrogen, for a long session.

I called Dr. Bradley, unfortunately she's out of the country til the end of the month. So I called Dr. Craig instead.

Was pleasantly suprised that Dr. Craig MBBS MSc FAAD Tropical Disease Specialist (The guy must be some kind of immigration junkie) actually have an office here in OWK & is here today. So I made an appointment & will go see him later in the afternoon.

He was in the BDF and trained in MX and yes, is a specialist in tropical skin diseases. Very good. Dra Julitta, trained in Guate, splits here time between her practice here and her family in the States.

Went to see Dr. Craig, nice guy, very friendly & his rate is very reasonable. (60 dollars for initial consultation, cheaper than some GP)

The consultation didn't take long, the good doc just took one look & figured that my big ol' mole is a benign tumor (seborrheic keratosis) & not skin cancer. woohoo! (In hind sight I must say the two does look pretty different. I wish those skin cancer sites would give a list of properties that skin cancer LACKS)

will go get my big ol' mole cut off next week. will recommend Dr. Craig to everyone else.
