Danbury Orthopedics’ Physicians on Connecticut Magazine’s 2015 “Top Docs” List

For the 2nd year in a row, Danbury Orthopedics is delighted to announce that four of their doctors have been named in the 2015 “Top Docs” list by Connecticut Magazine.  Michael Brand, MD, Joseph DiGiovanni, MD, Ross Henshaw, MD, and John Lunt, MD were each awarded the honor within their specialty of Orthopedic Surgery in the April 2015 issue of the magazine.

The annual “Top Docs” list is based on survey results from more than 5,000 questionnaires that are distributed to physicians across the state that asked respondents to name providers they would recommend, other than themselves, to whom they would send a loved one for “expert medical care.”

“Danbury Orthopedics is honored to once again have four of our physicians recognized as the top in their specialties in Connecticut.” said Dr. Michael Brand, President of Danbury Orthopedics. “To have doctors that are highly-recommended among their peers in each of their specializations is the best compliment to our office and a testament to their outstanding clinical expertise and patient care.”
