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!

Miriam Lipnick

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

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

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.

Rachel Podgursky Spiro

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!

Deborah Bassuk Michael

We love Dr. DiVincenzo and her staff.

Nancy George

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

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

Erin Menet

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!
