With all the germs going around in our area right now, the good news is that parents and child care providers can help prevent and slow the spread of these germs–even the flu. The flu (influenza) is a respiratory illness caused by a virus. Flu infections are highly contagious. They spread easily when children are …
Between 2004 and 2008, annual influenza vaccine recommendations were gradually expanded to include all children aged 6 months or older. In the Pediatrics study, “Influenza-Related Hospitalizations and ED Visits in Children Less Than 5 Years: 2000-2011,” from the January 2015 issue, researchers studied vaccine uptake and influenza-related hospital visits among children age 6 months to …

I recommend this peds office to anyone that wants a professional, clean respectful environment for their children. Kudos to Dr. Cathy D and Kids First Pediatric Partners.
Anytime I need a last minute visit, they find time for me to come in. Also, the doctors and nurses are super friendly, and my kids are actually excited to go to their appointments!

Just came home from my daughter’s visit with Dr. Cathy ,and after 13 years of having her as my children’s doctor, I’m still lovin’ the good medical advice and care she provides to our family.
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.

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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
