Dear Kids First Patients and Families:

Kids First Pediatrics was established 16 years ago by Dr. Samarel and his wife, Fran, with the goal to provide personalized, efficient and compassionate care to pediatric patients in our community. We are all very motivated every day to achieve this objective, as well as establishing meaningful relationships with your family. We feel very fortunate to do what we love and to be a partner with you in the care of your child(ren).

The past several years have brought many changes in the field of medicine, for both the patient and the medical provider. After much thought and serious consideration, we have decided that it is in the best interest of the practice to join Novant Health. Unfortunately, we will not be able to keep our name.
Therefore, on September 19, 2018, Kids First Pediatrics will be renamed Novant Health Pediatrics Ardrey Kell. Our commitment to providing personal, high quality medical care for your children will not change.

We are excited about this partnership and the benefits that this will allow our patients to utilize, including the ability to access your child's medical record via the MyChart system and schedule appointments online. Our affiliation with Novant will also provide you with a wide network of subspecialty care for your children. All previously scheduled appointments will be transferred to the new system, and as always, you may call to schedule or to change appointments. We will be working very hard to make this change as seamless as possible for our patients.

We appreciate the confidence that you have placed in us over the years and look forward to continuing to care for your children. Our Kids First families and outstanding staff are the reason that we enjoy coming to work ever day! If you have any questions about this exciting news, please feel free to email us at
frontdesk@kidsfirst-nc.com. To see what Insurance Plans will be available, please see below.

Again, we thank you for the opportunity to care for your children and we look forward to providing care to your family as Novant Health Pediatrics Ardrey Kell!

Sincerely yours,

Matthew D. Samarel, MD
Elissa R. Levine, MD
Jennifer W. Lassiter, MD

At Kids First Pediatrics, it is our privilege and pleasure to work with your family to provide comprehensive pediatric care for your child(ren). Our philosophy is basic and straightforward: we realize that a parent knows their child best, and our role as healthcare providers is to utilize that strength and work with your family to enhance the well-being of your child. Every child is different, and we respect their individuality. Watching each child develop and achieve their potential is the most gratifying aspect of pediatrics.
By operating an efficient yet personable office, Kids First Pediatrics is able to offer patients and families one of the most precious commodities: time. As both healthcare providers and consumers, we understand how important it is to have ample opportunity in a warm and friendly environment to discuss various issues as they relate to your child.
