Qualified Medical Examiner
Dr. Stancil J.L. Hutchinson, Psy.D., QME
Dr. Hutchinson has experience with a variety of types of medical-legal evaluations, including fitness for duty, retirement disability, and workers' compensation. He has provided psychological and neuropsychological evaluations as a Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) since 2015 and is increasingly used as an Agreed upon Medical Examiner (AME). Dr. Hutchinson has particular expertise in clinical diagnosis and has taught “Adult Psychopathology” at California Northstate University (CNSU) (2019), a school for professional psychology. He will teach “Neuropsychology” and “Intellectual Assessment" in the 2020-2021 school year at CNSU. He currently provides supervision for two practicum students.
Dr. Hutchinson has experience with psychological and neuropsychological evaluations in private practice as well, concerning a variety of issues, including but not limited to addiction, ADHD, anger, anxiety, autism, Bipolar, depression, dementia, dyslexia, eating disorders, learning disabilities, personality issues, PTSD, sleep disorders, and traumatic brain injury. He works with children ages six and up, adults, and elderly adults.
Dr. Hutchinson has experience providing evaluations for academic and employment accommodations, pre-surgical clearance (gastric bypass, spinal cord stimulator, etc.), and pre-employment screening (peace officers, aviation professionals). He also produces reports for psychotherapy clients who have never been in therapy before or are in therapy but not making the progress they expected.
Dr. Hutchinson has experience providing both evaluations and treatment for police officers, first responders, and veterans for evaluation of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). His expertise in psychological testing is particularly unique, having provided thousands of psychological test reports over the years, based on demographic and psychometric data alone, for clinicians who wish to defer this process to a third-party specialist.
Dr. Hutchinson also provides individual therapy, based on empirically supported ("best practice") treatments and taught “Best Practices for Adults” at CNSU (2019-2020). He has particular expertise in treating workers' compensation applicants but is open to treating clients whether it be through insurance or private pay. Dr. Hutchinson has provided over 50 lectures to a variety of audiences over northern California and the Bay Area in the last several years.
Dr. Hutchinson's central office is located in downtown Sacramento at 717 K Street. He has other offices in Northern California, virtual offices used on an as-needed basis, mostly for medical-legal evaluations. Telemedicine is offered!
