Our Story


Redwood Family Health Center is the byproduct of family collaboration.

Our founder, Dr V.A. Vallury, was part of the hospital health care system for two decades, caring for patients all throughout the city of Chicago. His patients continued to follow him, wherever he went.

With a dedicated patient base, he decided to break free from the hospital system, and become a pioneer of physician managed health clinics. He opened the Southtown Medical Center in 1999 and for 11 years, grew a dynamic practice that was beloved by his patients.

As the business grew, so did his responsibilities as a business owner, which led to him selling the practice and moving to Texas, where he had been licensed since 1989. With the aim to ease into retirement, the itch to develop his healthcare model continued to grab his attention. And with the lessons learned from Southtown, he enlisted some help.

First, he called upon his son, Anand, an entrepreneur with a keen eye for strategy and together, they re-worked the management process to ensure physicians could focus solely on healthcare. Anand would focus on road mapping the future, which has been his strongest skill.

To communicate the brand message, Dr Vallury looked to his daughter-in-law, Natasha, whose approach to marketing calls upon her history as a marketing executive and her dynamic voice as a visual artist. Natasha brings a sense of calm to our practice that is reflected in our language, presentation, and continuous focus on you, the patient.

To keep day-to-day operations running smoothly, Dr Vallury called upon Steve Dobias, who is a detail-oriented thinker who also possesses a deep love of people. Steve has previously supervised small teams with large patient bases, focusing specifically on initiatives to improve patient experience and also aligning patient care objectives with all state, local, and federal guidelines.
