Question Body Shop / Collision Repair Suggestions

So yesterday someone rear-ended my brand new Ford Fusion.
The back bumper has scratches, scuffs, etc. The paint is taken off down to the metal. The thing behind the bumper under the car (I think it's the actual bumper) is hanging down. I also have back up sensors but they seem to be working.

To the point..
I want to get the body/ collision repair done to make my car as close to new as possible. Money is not an issue because I would rather have this done perfectly than try to save some money and lose value of the car or have other problems down the line.

Any recommendations on who to go to for repair? I checked Yelp for some good reviewed body-shops but I wanted your input.

I am in San Jose / Santa Clara, California area.

Thank you.

Id say take it to the dealer if your not worried about cost, especially if insurance is gonna cover it. My brother has an 03 stratus coupe and he hit a dog on the highway and it tore the front end of his car up pretty bad. He took it to the dealer and they replaced things that didn't even need replaced (headlights, chromes). When he got it back it looked and drove amazing. They've got everything they need and quality parts.

My dealer won't do it because they don't have a body shop. There's another ford dealer who has a body shop but I feel weird going there for service because I originally got a quote from there for the purchase but then bought it from the other dealer
