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 going to this practice for the last 6 years. We moved 45 min away and still go. They staff and doctors are the kindest and warm people. I’ve never had one complaint or bad experience–my boys never mind going and look forward to it. Every single person that works here really cares, and it shows.

Jenny Mojica

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

We just love everything, great location, wonderful and clean office. Most especially the best doctors, nurses and staff, they are the kindest, most caring and warm-hearted people. Just love way they already are.

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

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

Erin Menet

We have been with Dr. Cathy since our oldest was born 13 years ago! Great service, wonderful staff and amazing availability! Thanks team KFPP!

Aisha Ghori Ozaki

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.

Nabeela Arain

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

We love you guys because you take the time to listen and genuinely care for my son with special needs….plus you never make me feel like I’m crazy for asking or feeling a certain way! Love, love, love you guys!
