With this vision, Legacy Medical Centers as 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 an overall special niche in the athletic world treating local as well as 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 soccer coach at Illinois Tech in Chicago while earning his doctorate degree. Upon graduation, Dr. Burnett stayed on with Illinois Tech as their Strength and Conditioning Coach until the 2010 season.

He started his local coaching career as the assistant coach for the girls Norwin varsity soccer team, following thereafter with the Peters Township High School girls varsity soccer team from 2010-2013.  He was fortunate to be part of WPIAL history in 2010, 2011, and 2012, where 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 earned the great privilege of working with over a hundred NFL athletes from 9 different teams. He continues to see athletes from MLB, NHL, LPGA, PGA, and professional boxers. All of this experience, in turn, has had a huge impact on Dr. Burnett, but most of all, expanding his array of knowledge of how best help patients.

With practices in both Peters Township 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 to be part of the special place Legacy Medical Centers has become, always striving to better serve the needs of the Pittsburgh community.
