Biography

“It is my responsibility to listen to my patients, present their diagnosis and treatment in a way they can understand, and care for them as individuals.”

Dr. Norleena Gullett views her relationship with patients as a partnership in which both doctor and patient work toward each person’s treatment goals. Dr. Gullett joined Erlanger Health System in December of 2014. She moved to Chattanooga to be closer to her parents.

“My responsibility as a physician is to provide cancer care using the latest technologic advances and expertise,” says Gullett. “It is also my responsibility to listen to each patient, present their treatment in a way they can understand, and care for them as individuals. My patients teach me their goals of care.”
