About Dr. Gambala

I received my Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology and Bachelor of Arts from H. Sophie Newcomb College of Tulane University. I also earned a Master of Science in Public Health and a Medical Degree from Tulane. I subsequently completed my Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency and Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship in Chicago at the University of Illinois. I returned to Tulane University Medical School to begin my academic career and currently act as Assistant Dean for Clinical Education and Director of Medical Student Education in Ob/Gyn. I focus on optimizing maternal health to have the best possible pregnancy outcomes, a live, healthy infant and a swift recovery for the mother. My areas of interest include, obesity, diabetes, preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction, and trial of labor after cesarean deliveries.

My Little Something Extra:
I'm a first generation Filipino American woman and the first physician in my family. I am proud that I can provide excellent obstetric care to the New Orleans community and be a part of this special time in a family's life.
