What’s the best way to find a great doctor? Often, the smartest way is to ask your doctor for a referral when you need a specialist.

That’s exactly what Connecticut Magazine® does. Every year, they ask respected physicians to name the specialists in their field to whom they would refer a family member. The results of the survey are compiled into a Top Doctors list representing the best of the best.

For the 2014 survey, more than 5,000 questionnaires were sent to Connecticut doctors in eight specialties. We are delighted to report that four Danbury Orthopedics physicians have been named Top Doctors on this distinguished list. They are: Michael Brand, MD, Joseph DiGiovanni, MD, Ross Henshaw, MD, and John Lunt, MD.
