Dr. Mark McKenna graduated from Tulane Medical School in 1999. He worked at his father’s practice for a few years. He was struck with the fact that doctors do not make as much money as he had originally thought. Instead of pursuing medicine, Dr. Mark McKenna found a calling in business ventures.
Dr. McKenna had a large real estate business in Louisiana, prior to Katrina. After the hurricane decimated his business, he moved to Atlanta and opened ShapeMed. ShapeMed specialized in cosmetic procedures like Botox and laser hair removal, as well as weight loss programs. He then sold his business to Lifetime Fitness for a staggering $4.4 million and worked closely with them for a period of time.
After a year of working for Lifetime Fitness, the company was bought again and Dr. Mark McKenna was asked to stay on as a medical director. He felt the bureaucracy of a large corporation would not be a good fit for him.
Dr. Mark McKenna decided to pursue a new venture called OVME. The name is pronounced “of me” because Dr. McKenna wants the focus completely on the patients. OVME will open it’s doors next year. The new business will allow patients to bypass waiting rooms and go straight to the consulting area, as well as virtual consultations. They will also offer an Uber-like app to order Botox injection house calls.
OVME isn’t restricted to merely Botox injections though. Their luxury treatment rooms will offer a multitude of facial treatments, such as dermal fillers and Vivace microneedling. They will also have testosterone replacement therapy for patients with male-pattern baldness. For patients needing help with weight loss, they begin with a DNA analysis to maximize weight loss program efficiency.
Dr. Mark McKenna’s vision for OVME is very patient oriented, including memberships for long term solutions. He wants all of his patients to look and feel their very best.
