Dr John-Paul Darby

Dr JP Darby studied medicine at The University of Melbourne, graduating in 1996. He spent his clinical years at The Austin Hospital beginning in 1997. The next 11 years were spent working as a GP in Drysdale, Victoria. From early 2012 until July 2015 he worked mostly as a rural and remote area locum GP. He has worked periodically for GMHG since 2004, but commenced permanent work at The Cottage in mid-2015.

JP enjoys all aspects of General Practice, with a particular interest in Mental Health, Relaxation Training and Medical Hypnosis.

Outside of work JP enjoys living in the moment, following his “highest excitement”, spending time with his beautiful wife and family and enjoying nature in any way, with as much surfing, backcountry snow skiing and tree hugging as he can fit in!
