Dr. Shepherd is hands down the best OBGYN I have ever seen. annual visits to the OBGYN are something no one looks forward to, or at least I don't. but river place is pretty great, I have never waited more than 5 min in the waiting room. All the nurses I have encountered are so kind and sweet. Dr. Shepherd goes above and beyond...she listens to everything you have to say, responds thoughtfully answering all your question. Her bedside manner is out of this world good, and she handled my I google everything so now I know the answer personality very well. Dr. Shepherd is a rock star!

Dr. Thoppil is the best. He is always so patient and understanding with all questions big or small. It is such a great feeling when you are comfortable and are able to be so candid throughout your pregnancy journey.

Dr. Thoppil is by far the best. As a nurse who has worked with many OB/GYN doctors he is the one that I choose for the care of my daughter and myself. Thank you for going above and beyond, oh and being a genius!

The best OBGYN I have gone too. I have moved over 30 minutes away and I will still make the trip to see him over anyone else.

It may be a drive to get to this OBGYN office from where I live due to traffic, but it's worth the trip.

As someone who works in the medical field, I can say with confidence that Dr. Thoppil and the staff at River Place are wonderful! Everyone was super nice and professional, and I really appreciate that Dr. Thoppil takes the time to meet you and speak with prior to you dressing in the gown for the exam. Everyone made me feel very at ease, the office is beautiful, and best of all, I did not even have to go to another office for blood work! They are able to do it for you all in office. So glad to have found my new doctor in Austin!

Was feeling anxious and nervous since I've had a miscarriage before. They got me in the same day and made me feel like I wasn't crazy for feeling that way. They are always so accommodating and kind hearted. Feel beyond blessed to have found their practice.
