The Truth About Dr. Mercy Odueyungbo

Prepare to fall in love with TLC's new show, "Dr. Mercy." The show features a prominent dermatologist, Dr. Mercy Odueyungbo, who is based out of Chicago, Illinois. You can expect to see a lot of similar content to "Dr. Pimple Popper," as both of the shows profile experienced and respected dermatologists who see many intriguing skin conditions in their private practices.

What exactly sets Odueyungbo apart from other reality TV doctors? One thing that stands out is how much her patients adore her. One patient shared, "I love Dr. Mercy," one emotional patient gushed during the trailer of the new series (via E! News). "She changed my life."

Even Howard Lee, the President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals, has high praise for the new doctor in town. "Dr. Mercy's personable and compassionate approach stood out and we can't wait for everyone to meet her," he said (via TV Shows Ace). Just why is Odueyungbo so beloved? Here's the truth.

Her patients love her

Dr. Mercy Odueyungbo's patients clearly adore her. According to Health Grades, her patients rate her care at 4.8 stars out of 5. Several reviews cite that she explains potentially confusing skincare conditions to her patients well, she was trustworthy, and her office was clean and well maintained.

One patient raved, "Today was my first appointment with Dr. O. I was impressed right from my initial visit with the receptionist to the nurse and then the Doctor. I would highly recommend her and her staff! She is extremely knowledgeable and you truly get a sense she cares."

You can see the dermatologist's quality care unfold in a sneak peek of her new show. When attempting to treat a patient with a port-wine birthmark on her face, she says, "... I have to be very gentle because if she's not comfortable, I'm worried she's not going to come back again. And I really want to achieve the best outcome for her" (via People).

While many of us tune into these dermatology shows to see the most interesting skin conditions they showcase, it's also nice to see a doctor who cares for her patients the way Dr. Mercy does!
