Have been using this practice since day one for my children and have been very happy with them. The doctors and NP’s are super friendly and take the time to address any questions I may have. I have never had trouble getting in touch with anyone over there, nurses have called me back promptly, and they have great info on all kinds of child issues. I also love the availability of the sick walk in hours and they have long days for regular scheduled or last minute appointments.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

We love Dr. DiVincenzo and her staff.

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!
