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!

We have been seeing Dr. Cathy since my oldest boy was born 12 years ago. Everyone is so caring and wonderful. My husband has a job that leads to us changing health insurance fairly often. I have had to switch my own doctors, but my one requirement is that whichever plan we take is accepted by Kids First. I would be too sad to leave.

Julie Han

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.

Penina Gaffen

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

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

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.

Chula Nolove Danguilan

Dr. DiVincenzo is the best! Walk-in hours are so convenient, and I’m able to ask as many questions as I need to during appointments. Nurses are always answer my questions when I call. Couldn’t have asked for a better doctors office for my daughter!

Megan Doody Romero

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!

Deb Lichtman

Great doctors, nurses and staff! Dr. DiVincenzo has seen my girls since day one. Even though we don’t live that close anymore, I still make the 45 minute drive so my girls can see their favorite doctor.

Maria Amoa

Our visit is never rushed! The doctors take as much time with us as needed.
