Dr Thoppil always provides me with a thorough review of my current gyn related health status in relation to other health concerns and conditions that have become part of my recent history. I am very appreciative of his diligence in making sure I don't get into any further health crises and his judgement has always proven to be right with every recommendation he's made to me. This level of care has put my mind at ease.

Great doctor, great staff and beautiful office space. It is a very comfortable atmosphere. I was nervous finding a doctor when I moved to the Austin area last year. I am so grateful I was referred to Dr. Thoppil.

Was very pleasant first experience. Was surprised to have no wait time and was greeted by friendly staff. Also was impressed at system allowing me to prefill out all paperwork and sign forms before arriving. Dr. Thoppil was very pleasant and thorough, answering most of my questions before I could ask. Was very impressed!

Ovarian cysts is something I have lived with for a very long time. To find a doctor is often challenging because a lot of doctors do not realize how much pain I am often in when my cysts appears. I picked Dr. Thoppil because of the reviews. When I saw Dr. Thoppil, I had my guard up yet I hung onto a little bit of hope. I can tell you that I left the office on cloud 9. For the first time in many many many years I felt that he understood. He does genuinely care. He took the time with me and there is a plan in place to help me with my cysts. I am so glad the reviews were correct about him.

Having moved from Houston at the end of my second trimester I struggled a bit to find an OBGYN that I was comfortable with and also a practice that was more about the patient and less about being a business (my Houston doctor though was good and belonged to an all female OBGYN group, the billing and general coding of visits was a constant issue because they were incapable of clarifying procedure code usage...also recommended procedures were always performed without consent in the name of 'mandatory' steps thereby making the patient think it is covered by insurance). At Riverplace OBGYN I feel it is very much a 'people based' practice where they treat people and are not only money minded. The level of care and steps taken to clarify details is exceptional. I am enjoying being taken care by a smaller team with such a high quality of care.

I went to Dr. Thoppil for both my pregnancies and everyone in the office made it a great experience. You get the sense that they all really care about you! His partner Dr. Shepherd is wonderful as well. I felt 100% comfortable with either of them delivering my babies.
