with Dr. Gullett

Dear Patients:

I am writing to let you know I will be leaving Erlanger in June to pursue a position in academics. It has been my privilege to participate in your cancer care. Please know the decision to leave has been difficult to make. I am proud of our work and the compassionate care my team provides.

Dr. Ryan Cleary with Tennessee Oncology will be taking over my practice. I am pleased that you have the opportunity to have him as your physician. Dr. Cleary is a well‑trained radiation oncologist from Vanderbilt. I leave you in his capable hands and hope you will stay with our Erlanger cancer team for treatment.

As always, your medical records are confidential. A copy can be transferred to another doctor or released, only with your permission. If you choose to see a different physician, you can sign an authorization form to release your files at any time.

I have greatly valued our relationship, and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years. You can follow me online at

Best wishes for health and happiness.

In Their Words

“From the moment I met her I knew that she had my best interest at heart. She clearly explained that I had different treatment options…She was with me every step of the way. So compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable. God truly blessed my circumstances when Dr. Gullett became my Radiation Oncology doctor. She is top notch!”

“My daughter has stage 4 gliablastoma and had it not been for the care she received from Dr. Gullett and her staff she would probably not be with us now. I would highly recommend her, she is a wonderful caring doctor who does what is best for her patients. If you ever had the need for a Radiation Oncology doctor she would be my choice.”
– Jackie K., Google Review

“Dr. Gullett is compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. She listens and then develops a plan with you, taking into consideration what will work best for you. She suggested the Live Strong program at the YMCA, which was a wonderful program. Dr. Gullett is willing to think of healthcare in an expanded way, and to encourage the patient to do the same.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed my appointment with Dr. Gullett. She made me feel so at ease and comfortable. In this day and time doctors are in such a hurry to meet quotas or RVU’s that they forget patients are people and just want someone to listen to them. So thank you Dr. Gullett for your time and patience!”
