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

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

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

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

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

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 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.

I love the way you take care of my sweet Annie White ( my granddaughter)! Walk in hours are great! Never had that with my kids

Margaret White

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.
