One thing that sets CC Young apart from our peers in senior living is our on-campus clinic. Residents have the opportunity to select CC Young clinic physicians for their primary care physician – and therefore benefit from the ease and convenience of having their doctor on campus. A key component of the clinic since its inception is our affiliation with Dr. Grady Goodwin to bring physician services to our campus.

Dr. Grady Goodwin is board certified in internal medicine and has practiced medicine since 2003. He earned an undergraduate business degree from the University of Texas at Austin and worked as a certified public accountant before returning to school for his medical doctorate at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

He completed his post-graduate training at Baylor University Medical Center and remained on staff there as a hospitalist until 2012. Since that time, he has focused on caring for patients in senior living communities and is committed to helping his patients remain as active and independent as possible.

A more recent addition to The Clinic is Dr. Syed Asif Hassan. Dr. Hassan is a board-certified family physician in practice since 2013 with a special focus on geriatric care. Originally from New York, he earned undergraduate degrees in chemistry and Arabic studies from SUNY Binghampton University before receiving his medical doctorate from Saba University School of Medicine.

He completed his residency training in family medicine at The Institute for Family Health in Kingston, NY before working several years managing complex patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings for the Columbia Memorial Health System.

Both of these physicians are supported by nurse practitioner, Audrey Roodhuyzen. Audrey was born and raised in southwestern Connecticut. She attended the University of Massachusetts Lowell for undergrad studies and received a BS in nursing in 2006. While at the University, she played soccer for the River Hawks. She became a certified registered nurse in 2006 and traveled the country working as a cardiac nurse for several years.

She and her husband, David, moved to Dallas in 2009 to escape the New England winters. In 2012 she began her graduate training at the University of Texas Arlington. During that time she also worked for quality management as a performance improvement coordination RN at Medical City Dallas Hospital. She received her MS in nursing in 2014 and became a certified adult and geriatric primary care nurse practitioner that same year. She spent the last six years working as a nurse practitioner in the medical observation unit at Baylor University Medical Center Dallas.

Rounding out the clinic staff, is Brandy Valadez. Brandy is a nurse as well as the office manager for the clinic. She schedules appointments, assists the medical staff as necessary, orders supplies, and generally keeps all the balls in the air. No small task!

The ease and convenience of these on-site services benefits our residents and families simply by reducing the stress of getting to and from appointments away from campus. Reducing stress in itself is a benefit and promotes wellness. Heartfelt thanks to our entire clinic staff for the services they provide.
