Dr Gleeson has a special interest in multiple myeloma, as well as myeloproliferative neoplasms and provides an obstetric haematology service to women at Dubbo Base Hospital.

In his public clinics, Dr Gleeson accepts referrals for all haematologic conditions except inherited bleeding conditions (e.g. haemophilia) and does not see patients under sixteen years of age who instead can be discussed with the on-call haematologist at Westmead Children’s Hospital in Sydney.

Some conditions, eg high-grade haematologic malignancies or certain bleeding disorders, are best treated in larger hospitals with access to multidisciplinary teams.
