Lesley V. Gumbs, MD
I was born on the island of Anguilla and grew up on St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands. As part of my schooling, I was required to study Spanish, which I am fluent in. I attended Brandeis University in 1980 and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in science in 1984. I graduated from George Washington University School of Medicine in 1988. Following medical school, I completed my internship and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Maimonides Medical Center and Coney Island Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. I was hired and served as a junior attending at Maimonides, before joining Mansfield Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates in 1992. I am board certified and participate in the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology annual board recertification. I served as the Medical Director of Prenatal Services at Windham Hospital for eight years. Currently, I am an assistant clinical professor at Yale’s School of Nursing.

My wife and I have been blessed with five sons and an amazing grandson. My hobbies are traveling, gardening and preparing West Indian cuisine with my family.
