Dr. Burnett has been in practice for 16 years, starting his career at Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in nuclear medicine, graduating summa cum laude. Following, he attended National University in Chicago where he earned an additional degree in biology as well as his Doctor of Chiropractic. Since then, Dr. Burnett has had a passion to continue his professional growth to learn and implement the most cutting-edge care around to best serve all patients. With this vision, Legacy Medical Centers was developed to be a special place where patients are provided the best possible care in an integrated and collaborative patient-focused setting.

Dr. Burnett treats a wide range of patients, but has a special niche in the athletic world treating local and professional athletes. His experience started as an athlete himself at Wheeling Jesuit University, where he was a four-year varsity letter winner and NCAA Academic All-American with the men’s soccer team. Dr. Burnett continued his soccer career as the assistant men’s and women’s coach at Illinois Tech in Chicago while earning his doctorate.

Upon graduation, Dr. Burnett stayed on with Illinois Tech as their strength and conditioning coach until the 2010 season. After moving to Pittsburgh in 2004, Dr. Burnett quickly got involved in the soccer community. He started his local coaching career as the assistant coach for the girls varsity soccer team at Norwin High School, following thereafter with the Peters Township High School girls varsity soccer team from 2010–2013. He was fortunate to be part of Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) history in 2010, 2011, and 2012, when the team captured three consecutive PIAA state championships for the first time in WPIAL history. In addition to his successful coaching career, Dr. Burnett has had the privilege of working with hundreds of NFL athletes from all 32 teams. He continues to see athletes from the MLB, NHL, LPGA, PGA, as well as professional boxers. All of this experience, in turn, has had a huge impact on Dr. Burnett, expanding his array of knowledge of how best to help patients.

With practices in Peters Township, McCandless, and North Huntingdon, Dr. Burnett currently resides locally with his wife Tina and daughters Bria and Keely. On his time off, he enjoys trips to Seven Springs, the beach, and Disney World. Dr. Burnett is proud of what Legacy Medical Centers has become, and is always striving to better serve the needs of the Pittsburgh community.
