Unfortunately I scored much lower than expected. Thought Id atleast hit 240s based on all my practice scores. Do I need research to make up for the lackluster step score? or will doing well in grades and step 2 be enough to match a mid- low tier DR program?

By the way I am an MD at a top 50 school

You'll be fine, man. Your score is below average for rads, but you can still match to a good program. Top 50 helps also.

Im in the southeast (Florida area) so I have the best shot there. I would be completely content at matching at USF,UF,UM,FSU,FAU,FIU.
However I am open to any academic program that is reasonable.

You should definitely get interviews at a lot of South-East programs with that step score. I was also in the Southeast with a similar step score and got interviews at pretty much everywhere I applied in the SE except for Duke.
