Dr. Singhal is the Medical Director of the Irving laboratory. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pathology with certification in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and is a Miraca Certified GI pathologist.
Dr. Singhal received her residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan. She then completed a cytopathology fellowship at the same institution followed by a surgical pathology fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh prior to joining Miraca Life Sciences in 2005. Dr. Singhal has a keen interest in laboratory operations and in recent years has been instrumental in implementing a system that ensures accurate patient identification and specimen tracking through each station of the laboratory. Since becoming Medical Director in July 2010, Dr. Singhal has improved the Miraca quality management system by leading a quarterly quality improvement program in which performance metrics are measured against established Miraca benchmarks for quality. An interdisciplinary approach is a key feature of this program: performance data are gathered from separate divisions within Miraca Life Sciences, including the Miraca pathologists, the laboratory, client services, information technology, and safety and logistics.
Dr. Singhal is also actively involved in selecting the best laboratory technology for optimal patient care, a process that includes initial evaluation, validation, performance monitoring, and improvement recommendations for all laboratory equipment. Her background training in immunology and microbiology, along with her basic science research experience, enable her to more thoroughly understand the principles and methodologies underlying the complex systems that comprise the laboratory. Dr. Singhal also facilitates communication between the laboratory, pathologists, and clinicians. As a result of her work and those of our outstanding operations team, we routinely get high praise from external credentialing inspectors, including the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and several state-specific agencies. Dr. Singhal is an active member of both the CAP and the North Texas Society of Pathologists. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
