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.

We love Dr. DiVincenzo and her staff.

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

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

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.

Neil Harris

Dr. DiVincenzo is the best! Walk-in hours are so convenient, and I’m able to ask as many questions as I need to during appointments. Nurses are always answer my questions when I call. Couldn’t have asked for a better doctors office for my daughter!

Megan Doody Romero

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 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

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!
