Independent Clinical Examiners

{Updated: January 2012}

The psychiatrists and psychologists listed below have indicated their willingness to serve as independent examiners (often referred to as "independent medical examiners" or IMEs) in civil commitment, guardianship and "substituted judgment" proceedings. Several agencies and group practices that may be of assistance also are listed. Counties in which service is preferred are noted to the right of the clinicians' names, as are self-described specialties. Inclusion of any particular clinician on this list should not be construed as an endorsement of his/her professional expertise by the Committee for Public Counsel Services.
