I am Dr. Sarah Burnett
I joined the Putney team in 2009 after they upgraded to a digital x-ray system and now provide reports on both x-rays and MRI’s. Aswell as my experience in Radiology I also have a Diploma in Photography and an MA in Creative Writing.
I have written for the national press, and if you tune in, can be heard regularly on the radio. I live in South West London, with my husband, two children and two dogs.
Experience and Achievements
- Dr Sarah Burnett joined the Putney Chiropractic team in 2009 when we upgraded to a digital x-ray system. She reports on every study taken at Putney Chiropractic which ensures nothing is missed and an expert second opinion is given with every study. It is through Dr Sarah and our relationship with the King Edward VII Hospital, London, that we have direct access to MRI studies where Dr Sarah reports directly on the MRIs for us.
- Dr Sarah studied medicine at King’s College on the Strand, followed by her clinical years at Westminster Medical School, now part of Imperial College. She qualified in 1985, with the Silver Medal for London. Following work as a GP and general physician for three years, and obtaining her Membership of the Royal College of Physicians, Sarah started in Radiology at St Bartholomew’s Hospital.
