Welcome to Kids First Pediatrics

Message from
Dr. Samarel Below**

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.

**Dear Patients and Families:

It is with mixed emotions that I inform you that Dr. Holly Smith has resigned her position at Kids First Pediatrics. Dr. Smith’s last day at Kids First will be December 21, 2016.

We are actively looking for a new provider at Kids First, and anticipate someone joining our team shortly. In the meantime, I am confident that your child’s healthcare needs will continue to be met by the excellent team of doctors that we have at Kids First.  Drs. Levine, Wheeler and Lassiter and I are ready to provide care to your family in a seamless fashion.

We appreciate the wonderful care that Dr. Smith has provided to our patients and wish her the best in her new role as a concierge physician for Signature Pediatrics. If you have any questions, please feel free to discuss them with Fran, Cathy or any member of the Kids First Pediatrics team.

I am wishing your family a happy and healthy holiday season.

All the Best,
Matthew D. Samarel, MD, FAAP
