His clinical practice focuses on the care of patients with hematologic malignancies, with a particular emphasis on myeloid conditions and acute leukemias, including acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphocytic leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and myeloproliferative neoplasms.

Dr. LeBlanc’s work has led to his recognition as an "Inspirational Leader under 40" by the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM), "Fellow" status from the Academy in 2016, the 2018 international Clinical Impact award from the European Association for Palliative Care, and the AAHPM Early Career Investigator award in 2020.
