Norleena Poynter Gullett, MD

Clinical Associate in the Department of Radiation Oncology

I am a board-certified radiation oncologist specializing in the treatment of prostate cancer, breast cancer and tumors of the brain and spine. I am passionate about using the latest technology to deliver high quality radiation therapy and providing a holistic approach to care. My past research has examined cancer prevention using natural compounds such as green tea, curcumin and omega-3 fatty acids. I have published guidelines for cancer-induced cachexia – the muscle-wasting and weight loss seen in cancer patients. My current research is focused on the treatment of prostate cancer.
