This was my second visit with this provider. She is thoughtful and thorough. She had clearly done a thorough review of my record before the appointment, knew the issues that were of concern to her and me, really listened to my perspective and with me created a plan that we both felt comfortable with.

Dr. Gleeson is an amazing physician-I truly believe that she saved my life during a recent incident of AF and pulmonary embolism. She persisted with other physicians to try to find a cause of plural effusion. She texts and questions until she finds an explanation that makes sense to her-then shares with me. This is very reassuring-especially when she reviews blood work and other testing to explain the decisions. She is an excellent physician and I feel blessed to have her as mine. Love her persistence!!

It may seem strange for a patient to say, "I enjoy visiting my PCP!" It's a fact for me. Dr Gleeson is more a friend who is concerned for me and my health. We laugh about the easy "stuff" which makes it easier to discuss the more concerning issues. I have fun visits!

Never felt as though she only had x number of minutes to address my care plan. Listened to all my concerns, did a physical exam, did NOT stare at her computer the whole time. I felt as though I was interacting with a person who was interested in my health and was willing to share her time and expertise directing me towards optimum health. Excellent rapport, didn't feel that I was a NUMBER that had to be addressed in x minutes . Complete and welcome change from my former health care provider! Thank you!

Dr. Gleason always comes super-prepared with notes and insights. She is a gifted doctor. I am under the care of an oncologist and while I have confidence in [...], it is the time with Dr. G that truly helps me understand my medical situations, ontological and otherwise. She is the ultimate doctor in whom I place my trust. Dr. G has taken a deep interest in the type of cancer that challenges me. On both a personal and professional level during this appointment and always she is the medical provider I most value and trust. [...] I took comfort in knowing that in this appointment with Dr. G I would gain important insights and reassurance. Dr. G called me twice that evening with additional information. I could write a book about the superb qualities Dr. Gleeson brings to the profession and how she should be emulated.
