Placing our patients first in every situation and delivering extraordinary quality care.

Our History

In 1998, Dr. Cassia Portugal started First Choice Pediatrics in a small office next to the Winter Park Hospital.The overwhelming success of returning patients motivated Dr. Portugal to expand her practice by the year 2000. She needed more space, and so she relocated the practice to our main location on Semoran Boulevard. Her next endeavor was to extend services to patients in the Sanford area and opened a new office on Medical Plaza Drive in 2005.


With the success of her first two offices she decided to add two more locations in 2012; Alafaya and Metrowest. In 2014, she opened a fifth office in Kissimmee and a sixth office in Oviedo the following year. First Choice Pediatrics has Board Certified Pediatricians practicing at all locations across the Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties.

Nick: I would describe Dr. Portugal as a determined, ambitious, physician owner. She started the practice in 1998 in a very small, humble clinic over by Winter Park Hospital. From there, inspired by growth she opened a larger office and its business boomed.

Natalie: We have five different locations. Our first location was on Semoran Boulevard in Orlando. Our second location is at Sanford. We also have here in Alafaya, Kissimmee Metro West and Oviedo coming up soon.

Esther: Because we were growing so quickly that she did have to hire more doctors to work with her. She is very renowned in Central Florida Area. She is very passionate about patient care, community service and preventive medicines.

Natalie: She really cares about not only while you’re working, but she also cares about you. If there’s anything that we’re ever concerned about or anything that we ever need to speak to about she definitely has an open door and we can always go with her with any suggestions, opinions. She’s very open to ideas. Anything that we can do for the office to make the office a better working place, she definitely is very open with that.
