Paige Nealy Quintero, MD
Paige Nealy Quintero, MD is a proud resident of Lexington, KY, where she attends Greater Faith Apostolic Church under the pastorship of Wiliam C. McGraw.
She has been employed at Baptist Health Lexington since 2016, where she practices Bariatric, Minimally-invasive, and General Surgery. She has a special burden for patients who are struggling with obesity, as she herself is a sleeve gastrectomy patient and has taken the same weight loss journey as many of her patients. She is known locally and regionally for her empathy and compassion in this special patient population, as well as her technical skill.
She is a Fellow of the American College of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons, where she serves as a member of the national Private Practice Committee andis also active in the Kentucky-Ohio Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons.
Dr. Quintero was born in Louisville, KY. She was raised by her wonderful parents, Donnie and Garry Nealy, who were and are a huge support to her career. During her youth she attended Calvary Apostolic Church, pastored by Rev. G.L. Vittitow. After earning a Bachelor’s in Biochemistry with secondary concentration in Russian Literature at Smith College in Northampton, MA, she completed her MD at the University of Louisville in 2008. She completed General Surgery residency training at Loyola University in Chicago, and also did a Bariatric Surgery fellowship at the University of Missouri.
While in Surgery residency in Chicagoland, she miraculously managed to meet and marry the love of her life, Bryant, in 2011. She is mother to two precious children, Rhett born in 2014, and Scarlett born in 2016, who are the lights of her life. Scarlett has already expressed her desire to be a surgeon like her Mommy, and frequently does operations on her doll babies.
Dr. Quintero has had the pleasure of experiencing many different Oneness Apostolic churches across the country while moving around during her schooling and training. She has been playing the piano and singing in church since she was 10 years old, and has worn many hats, including music director, choir director, and sectional Hyphen leader, along with her husband. She currently serves as pianist and pre-teen girls Sunday School teacher.
Dr. Quintero is so excited to join Apostolic Healthcare International’s executive board, and to be an encouragement and resource for other Apostolics in medicine.
