Valley Medical Group’s Wayne Primary/Urgent Care Center Welcomes Internist

Board-certified internist Frances Anerousis, M.D., has joined Valley Medical Group’s Primary/Urgent Care Center in Wayne.  The center is located at 759 Hamburg Turnpike, in the Ramapo Plaza across from Office Depot. 
Valley Medical Group (VMG) is a multispecialty group practice comprising doctors and advanced practice professionals representing more than 30 medical and surgical specialties.
Dr. Anerousis has been practicing at the VMG Wayne Center since April 2013 in a part-time capacity.  On December 1, she became a full-time member of the medical staff, caring for patients from adolescence to geriatric age. 
Dr. Anerousis received her medical degree from Siena University School of Medicine and Surgery in Italy.  She completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at the Brooklyn Hospital Center/Weill Medical College of Cornell University.  Prior to joining Valley Medical Group, she had been associated with several medical practices in Morris, Somerset, and Mercer counties.  She is a member of the Medical Society of New Jersey, the American Medical Association, and the Hellenic Medical Association. She speaks English, Italian, and Greek fluently. 
“Internal medicine is the health care gateway for many patients and gives me the privilege to provide medical care that directly impacts patients’ health over the course of their lifetimes,” says Dr. Anerousis.  “The challenges of diagnosing and treating chronic diseases and acute illnesses – which sometimes involves investigation that resembles detective work – keep me on the cutting edge of new developments in the medical field that I love.  There is a tremendous amount of support here at the Wayne center and stability within Valley Health System that has made me feel incredibly welcome.” 
Valley Medical Group (VMG) comprises doctors and advanced practice professionals who practice at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, Valley’s Blumenthal Cancer Center in Paramus, seven primary/urgent care centers, and community-based practices throughout the region.
