9 month visit

July 14, 2017 Edith Germain

I have had lots of parents in recent weeks tell me that they are enjoying reading my posts.  I appreciate the positive feed back and I hope we can keep the momentum going.  Our baby is now 9 months old.  At earlier visits we were monitoring the early stages of development, but at 9 months …

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!

Joanna Varda

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Best pediatric clinic I have ever been into. I love the doctors & staff.

Annie Tajre Aly

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.

Penina Gaffen

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
