Dr. Poornakala

We work with the doctors, healthcare professionals, researchers, and writers from around the world in order to provide the best, most up-to-date information. It’s our gift to our Ostego family.

Hello. I am Dr. Poornakala, and I am a practicing pathologist with a specialty in medical research. I have published several articles in peer-reviewed medical journals related to cancer and oncology and have enjoyed being a mentor to medical students in case presentation, thesis completion (mine won the Dr. CR Soman Award for the best post-graduate dissertation), poster and paper presentations.

I love my work in medical laboratories and also love writing essential content that helps people answer questions that are important to their health. Hematology, clinical biochemistry, clinical pathology, cytology, histopathology, interpretation of lab reports, and other areas where patients need help understanding their situation or diagnosis. I also teach medical students – giving lectures and presentations for students lets me broaden my reach and helps them understand from my experience.
