Dr. Sarah D. Cullen, DPM
Dr. Cullen earned her B.A. at Bates College in Lewiston, ME. She then worked as a laboratory technician at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Cancer Center while simultaneously completing her post-baccalaureate medical courses.

She also worked at her Uncle’s podiatric practice in Massachusetts, where she fell in love with the diversity podiatry has to offer. Dr. Cullen states, “you can evaluate and help treat a bunion, ankle fracture, arthritis, tendonitis, dermatological conditions, pediatric patients, and diabetic wounds all in one day. That is unique to podiatry!” Dr. Cullen obtained her doctorate at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. She then earned her surgical diploma subspecializing in reconstructive and revisional foot and ankle surgery in Boston, Massachusetts, at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, an affiliate of Tufts University. As a resident, she served as an academic coordinator and chief resident. She is fortunate to have trained with some of the most well-renowned surgical practitioners in podiatric surgery and orthopedic trauma. She is board qualified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

She also loves volunteering in the community and has worked multiple years at the Boston Marathon in the medical tent and for homeless shelters in Philadelphia.
