My name is Shelley Richards, and I am a Certified Physician Assistant who began working for Patel & Patel, M.D., Inc. in May 2014.  Prior to Drs. Kiran & Leela Patel, I worked for a company mainly specializing in psychiatric disorders. 


I love what I do and look forward to work each day.  I am excited to care for you and guide you through your healthcare needs.  I have three dogs and live locally in the Charleston area.  I will be glad to take care of you and your family during pregnancy and for family medicine and gynecology needs.

Healthy moms and healthy babies!  That is our goal.  My name is Natalie Beeson, and I received my Physician Assistant degree from Alderson-Broaddus college in 2001.  I have been a Physician Assistant for over 13 years, and all of those years have been spent in obstetrics & gynecology and family medicine.  Eleven of those years have been with Drs. Kiran and Leela Patel.  Our office takes pride in the exceptional care that we provide all of our patients.  We cater to individual patient needs and provide patients with the information they need to take care of themselves and their families. 


I have grown up in South Charleston and enjoy working and giving back to a community that means so much to me.  I truly enjoy taking care of women and their growing families during pregnancy and for family medicine and gynecology needs.
