Really the best person to tell you this is yourself. What do you really want to do?? If you want to practice clinical medicine in the US, then the last thing you want to do is not apply. Let the programs make the decision for you. You have amazing scores, focus on what the issue is with CS and face it. Go out there and talk to prog directors, or established physicians and expand your networking.
I definitely would apply if I had your scores.
What is your visa status??

Don't give up, you have perfect step 1 and 2ck scores. get some US LORs and work on your CV (observership, papers..) you will be fine. Trust yourself and apply widely to multiple specialties.

If you failed CS for the 2nd time and you have double 99 scores this mean there is a problem in the way you are dealing wiht the SP s in the exam, take a look at the AMG instruction sheeth they use to pass the exam:
