The doctor did her Internship in Hospital General Del Estado de Sonora in Hermosillo, Sonora, and did her required Social Service at the General Hospital Nogales, Sonora.

Dra. Quintero continued her education with a post graduate degree in her Specialty of Ophthalmology at the Associacion Para Evitar la Ceguera en Mexico Hospital, under Dr. Luis Sanchez Bulnes guidance, in Mexico City, Mexico. Upon completion of her post graduate degree in Ophthalmology the doctor did a year of Fellowship in the same hospital in Cornea, External Eye Diseases and Refractive Surgery. The doctor was able to learn and practice the latest procedures using the state of art Ophthalmology equipment.

The doctor started her career early as an assistant to her father, the prominent Ophthalmologist, Dr. Rigoberto Quintero Chavez. As a little girl she always wanted to be a doctor and was at her father's side learning all she could about Ophthalmology from about age 4. Upon completion of her extensive formal educational pursuits, and earning her Doctorate, she joined her father's clinic and, just recently, took over the practice.

Dra. Quintero uses the state of the art equipment to determine the correct prescriptions for eyeglasses and contacts. She also maintains a very large inventory of frames and contacts to accommodate her patients. As her practice continues to expand, she plans to add an Optometrist to assist her with patients seeking glasses or contacts.

An important reason that the doctor has such high tech equipment, such as the The TopCon KR7000, in her office 100_1714.jpg (78746 bytes)is that she uses it to evaluate patients that are seeking permanent vision correction. All patients are screened in her clinic to determine their suitability for the procedure (LASIK eye surgery, LASEK eye surgery or Laser eye surgery.) 

Pictured to the left is the new Neo-Tech Medical chair the that the doctor can use in examination and some treatments.

Dra. Quintero is the only Ophthalmologist in Nogales that offers the safest and best alternative to prescription glasses or contacts. She is an Ophthalmology Surgeon that exclusively offers the latest technology in Laser surgery for Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism, LASIK Laser Surgery. This is the safest procedure available and it is performed the same as any top rated Ophthalmologist in the US, in fact, over 1,000,000 procedures are performed in the US each year.

The beauty of this procedure is that you will immediately see 20/20 or better. The procedure is quick, usually in less than a hour and you are immediately ambulatory, ready to go home. Eye drops are used to numb the eye and the patient only reports feeling slight pressure.   

All the surgical procedures are performed in a Sonora hospital using the Visx Star S4 Excimer Laser System, under the strictest, hygienically sterile conditions demanded by Dra. Quintero (meeting orexceeding USA standards.)

Why we've chosen the VISX STAR S4 Excimer Laser System:
  • The STAR 4 variable beam technology allows the doctor to treat patients with different laser beam sizes and shapes, determined by each patient's visual needs.
  • The VISX Exclusive SmartBeam™ technology adjusts beam size according to treatment, minimizing the amount of corneal tissue that needs to be removed.
  • With ActiveTrak™ 3D eye-tracking technology, the laser detects and compensates for small eye movements by guiding the laser beam to keep it centered precisely over the treatment area.
  • VISX's exclusive Active Trak™ is the only system that allows the doctor to track eye movement in all three dimensions. Having the beam centered correctly on the eye at all times helps ensure precise results.
  • Unlike other lasers with eye-tracking technology, ActiveTrak requires no pupil dilation, leading to an even quicker recovery time.
  • VISX laser systems produce an extremely smooth surface on the cornea after the procedure. Smoother ablations, as they're known, promote faster healing and result in better visual outcomes.
  • VISX laser systems achieve an optical zone that may result in reduced problems with night vision.
  • VISX laser systems require a shorter procedure time than many lasers, which enhances comfort and may reduce the risk of postoperative complications.
