Leslie Mandel was English born, but spent most of his career in North America. He was educated in Liverpool and went on to Liverpool University Medical School, graduating in 1942. After junior hospital posts he joined the Royal Air Force as a medical officer in 1943 and served until 1946. After demobilization and a short period back at Walton Hospital, Liverpool, he became a senior registrar at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases at Bath, later becoming a research fellow.

In 1954 he went to Canada, specializing in internal medicine and rheumatology in private practice in Windsor, Ontario, before moving across to the United States, to Michigan, where he established a practice in the Detroit area.

He became a consultant in rheumatology at the Mount Sinai Hospital in 1960 and was attached to the medical school. He later became a lecturer at the Wayne State School of Medicine in Detroit, a position he held for many years in addition to his private practice. He was a member and active officer in the Michigan Rheumatology Society in the early years of its inception and remained a member throughout his life.

He married Sarah Sheinfeld in 1959 and they had two children.
