Dr Michelle Crockett
Dr Crockett grew up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney completing her schooling at Stella Maris College in Manly. On completing her medical degree at the University of Sydney, she spent her years as junior doctor at Westmead, Blacktown and Mt Druitt Hospitals. Michelle enjoyed working with the people of Western Sydney and set up a Practice in St Marys, later joining a group practice in Penrith. During her training as a GP Michelle developed an interest in managing work injuries and did further training in this area through WorkCover NSW. She currently lectures to other GPs on managing work related injuries. With a growing burden of mental health problems in the community and a limited number of psychiatrists in Western Sydney, Michelle developed an interest in mental health and has completed extra training including delivering focused psychological strategies. Having worked in Western Sydney for over 20 years Michelle has many long term patients and continues to enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds as well as teaching the doctors of the future. She has been the president of the Nepean Medical Association since 2008.
