The Many Colors of Poop

Screen Shot 2015-02-27 at 1.37.45 PM

Long after adjusting to parenthood and your role as principal poop watcher and wiper, you may still find yourself fretting over changes in the color of your baby’s poop. In reality, once your baby has pooped enough to get rid of the tarry meconium, all the varying shades of yellow, brown, and even green are …

A ‘Perfect’ Parent

While in reality, most of us know there are no perfect parents, we often fool ourselves into thinking we should be just that. The ideal mother and father who raise happy, well-adjusted problem-free children. In truth, there is no such person as a perfect parent – or a perfect child. Problem behavior is common among …

We love Dr. DiVincenzo and her staff. She was recommended by my OB/GYN and my internist. You know she is a special doctor when the internist’s children write you a letter about her and her practice. It was a for-sure choice for us. We lost our first child and with our second healthy daughter, we were looking for an extra special doctor, and we found her. She is excellent. She goes above and beyond to make your child feel welcome and special and at ease. We don’t live in Illinois but still come for routine visits.

As a mother of two children and the director of a large, local early childhood center, I am keenly aware of the importance of high quality pediatric care and support. Kids First Pediatric Partners has consistently exceeded my expectations on every level. Prior to joining the practice in 2010, my children had been to two different physicians. What sets KFPP apart is that each member of their staff takes the time to get to know your child and family on a personal level. As an educator focused on child development, I can attest to the fact that building solid and trusting relationships with families is crucial to being able to provide exceptional care. The entire business model of KFPP reflects their family-centered care- they are open 7 days per week, offer sick call hours and extended office hours (for us busy working parents!), free monthly parent workshops, and an excellent team of nurse practitioners who see patients and consult over the phone. I confidently have recommended this practice to dozens of our clients, and they too will rave about their experiences at KFPP. I am expecting my 3rd child and am so excited to have Dr DiVincenzo personallycare for my newborn. Even if you love your current doctor, if you are not already a KFPP client, I highly recommend you make the switch now!

We love Dr. DiVincenzo and her staff.

As a first time mother, Kids First was there from day one. Dr. Aronson saw my daughter in the hospital after her birth, and I haven’t considered going anywhere else. The amazing staff and clean, friendly office will see my daughter and my son for their medical needs. Yay kids first!

Daye Williamson

Have been using this practice since day one for my children and have been very happy with them. The doctors and NP’s are super friendly and take the time to address any questions I may have. I have never had trouble getting in touch with anyone over there, nurses have called me back promptly, and they have great info on all kinds of child issues. I also love the availability of the sick walk in hours and they have long days for regular scheduled or last minute appointments.

Dr . Cathy and Co. are awesome! We’ve been with her for over 14 years – first when she was with Dr. Mark Swisslow and later when she started her own practice. She’s like my sister/mom/best friend/pediatrician all rolled into one. Not only as a great diagnostician, but also amazing with just plain old advice on lots of parenting and non parenting issues! The staff at Kids First is equally impressive but Dr. Cathy we’ll always be partial to you! We love you!

Sori Hochberg

Before we found Kids First we had gone to two different pediatricians. Since we came to Kids First, we have been so thrilled. The nurses are so sweet, friendly and caring. The staff in the front is so nice and helpful. The nurse practitioners are super knowledgeable and amazing to work with. And of course the doctors- really they are outstanding. We have seen all of the doctors many, many times- and I can honestly say that every single one of them cares for my kids the same way they care for their own kids. As a matter of fact- when discussing with the doctors, it is very common to hear them say, “well- with my kids I do…” And that makes me know that my kids are in good hands!

Miriam Lipnick

The staff at Kids first is totally proactive and does not have a “wait and see” approach to problems. They look for solutions and refer kids to appropriate diagnostics, therapy, doctors, therapists, whatever is needed as soon as it is needed. The doctors and staff are warm, smart, proactive and encouraging. This practice is a most impressive one! Parents and children are in excellent hands with Kids First Pediatric Partners!

Since moving to Chicago in 2006 we’ve exclusively taken our kids to Kids First. We’ve seen the practice grow over the years and the level of care has continued to be stellar.
