About Mija

Growing up in Paramus, I had always heard of Valley’s reputation being the best. Once I started working here I saw it firsthand. I appreciate how the staff here are encouraged to give exceptional care, not just treating a patient’s diagnosis but the person as a whole. Working at the Valley Gamma Knife Center has given me the opportunity to see the resilience in our patients, and it’s been an honor to be part of their care team.
