Dr. Thoppil was amazing! He listened, understood my syptoms, and discussed my options. I didn't feel rushed at all and he made me feel very comfortable. He will be my GYN doc from now on! It has only been a few weeks since my visit, and I am feeling so much better!

Dr. Thoppil is hilarious. For me, this was very important. He always answered all of my questions and never once made me feel like I was a nuisance.

I was so impressed with Dr. Shepherd and her staff from beginning to end. Many doctors don’t even remember why you are coming in but Dr. Shepherd not only took the time to read my chart but to bring me copies of important medical photographs without having to ask. Every time there was communication from the office, she called me personally...you almost never get that attention these days. I 100% recommend this office!

I appreciate the entire staff at River Place OBGYN. Dr Thoppil takes time to talk with me, address my concerns and actually listens to what I have to say. He gives great feedback and suggestions for improvement. Only reason I don't give this a 5 star review is the billing issue with the labs that continue to cause problems. Wish they could work that part out. Otherwise, I anticipate I'll be with this practice for a long time!

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.
