I went to four orthopedic doctors over the course of three years before Dr. Scarborough and he was the one to finally diagnose me with bone cancer. Three weeks after I was diagnosed, I had leg reconstruction surgery and another chance to live life normally. Him, his team and Shands are nothing...more
