Do you struggle getting your child to eat their fruits or vegetables? Does your child protest food until he gets what he or she wants? Will your child only eat carbs or “beige” foods?¬†Picky eating is a common problem amongst kids of all ages, but it can start as soon as we begin to introduce …

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.

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

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

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

We just love everything, great location, wonderful and clean office. Most especially the best doctors, nurses and staff, they are the kindest, most caring and warm-hearted people. Just love way they already are.

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

Erin Menet

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

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

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!
