  1. I don’t know why the show incorrectly states Dr. Mercy is in Chicago. They even show pictures of downtown Chicago skyline, landmarks and streets. The doctor is actually located 22 miles west/outside of Chicago in Lombard.

  2. I love her show I would love to have her treat my daughter with PCOS she is a perfect candidate for a piggyback to the woman that was treated my daughter also has one ovary but she luckily had a baby!
