Responsive, caring, nurturing staff make Kid’s First so special. It’s outstanding care – worth driving a far distance for, like we do!

Christine Gloriosa Nogal

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.

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

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

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.

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!

Melissa Gallagher

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

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

Since moving to Chicago in 2006 we’ve exclusively taken our kids to Kids First. We’ve seen the practice grow over the years and the level of care has continued to be stellar.
