Dr. Hutcheon practices Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus in Maryland and the Washington DC Metro area.
Dr. Hutcheon is Board Certified in Ophthalmology and licensed to practice Medicine and Surgery in Maryland. Dr. Hutcheon has privileges at the Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and the Montgomery Surgery Center, both located in Rockville.
She is an active fellow in the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Her name has been included in the Washingtonian Top Doctors list beginning in 1995, and her patients have repeatedly elected her to the Consumer Report Check List.
Dr. Marcia Hutcheon began her solo practice of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus in the mid-80s. For the first four years she rented space from a group of pediatricians in Gaithersburg that included Drs. Pedreira, Mella and Feroli. These kind and supportive doctors gave her the opportunity to establish a Pediatric Ophthalmology practice that grew rapidly. Eventually, however, she outgrew her space within their practice and moved out on her own. Her office is now located in King Farm.
Dr. Hutcheon graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. She completed an Internship in Neurology at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC under the tutelage of Dr. James Toole. Dr. Toole was a leading expert in stroke research and led the most lively and enlightening morning rounds.
This Internship was followed by a Residency in Ophthalmology at the Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC. The chairman of the department at that time was Dr. William Glew who headed and was responsible for a strong teaching program that included great academicians and local private practitioners of ophthalmology. Among the “greats” were Dr. Lorenz Zimmerman (Ocular Pathology) and Dr. Marshall Parks (Pediatric Ophthalmology).
After finishing her residency, Dr. Hutcheon received Fellowship training in Pediatric Ophthalmology at Boston Children’s Hospital Harvard. Boston is a hub for pediatric medical referrals, and with the guidance of Drs. Richard Robb, Robert Petersen, Anne Fulton and Lois Smith she received excellent training in the medical and surgical treatment of pediatric eye disease. Dr. Hutcheon returned to the Washington DC area in 1985 and opened her practice shortly thereafter.
