Patient Education and Support Groups

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Department of Medicine

Where to go for your rehabilitation care is a big decision and a long commitment. To ensure that you’re well informed when you make this healthcare decision, Danbury Hospital provides our patients comprehensive patient orientation, including education regarding what to expect before, during, and after your rehabilitation treatment, and how to reap the greatest benefits from your treatment with us.

Ask your doctor today to make sure you have a complete list of all our educational seminars and support groups available for physical medicine and rehabilitation patients. All of our support groups are held at our Main Street Physical Rehabilitation Center located at 235 Main Street in Danbury.
