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!

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

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

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

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

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!

Nancy George

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!
