What to Expect During Your Stay
Patients who live outside the Denver area are generally scheduled for a four to seven day visit. This often requires you to stay over the weekend. In addition, two to three appointments with your treating physician as well as diagnostic testing, health education, specialty physician consultations, and rehabilitation treatment may be scheduled. The clinic staff will provide you with a written schedule of appointments every day.
