Dr. Mark McKenna is truly a study in contrasts. Although he has completed his medical degree from Tulane University, he hasn’t always stuck with medicine. Immediately after he graduated, he built a real estate business in New Orleans. Unfortunately, he lost everything when Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. Although he rebuilt the business, it later dissolved. He then moved to Atlanta, and started ShapeMed, which was a chain of medical offices offering cosmetic treatments, such as Botox and hair removal procedures. He later sold that venture, but he now has a new vision not only for Atlanta residence but for the whole entire country.
In Dr. McKenna’s new venture, OVME, he desires to create a branch of aesthetic medicine that is built around a network of medical providers who will do house calls. They will deliver Botox and other such medications, and they will do it in an app that is reminiscent of Uber or Airbnb. The concept for medical providers is simple: they jgust tell Dr. McKenna’s new app what territory they would like to work in, set their hours, and then they have the ability to deliver these products to patients in their area that desire them.
OVME, which is pronounced “of me”, made its debut in March and one of the first clinics was opened in Atlanta. The new clinic opened in the Buckhead neighborhood, and Dr. Mark McKenna couldn’t be prouder. The clinic features four luxury rooms and one major consultation room. Dr. Mark McKenna realizes that this is probably his opus.
Dr. Mark McKenna continues to tirelessly advocate for all of his patients, and because of that he is almost a celebrity. However, he also is excited for the beginning of this clinic simply because he is always evolving. He has a lot of new entrepreneurial ideas for how to revitalize the elective medical services industry, and he is anxious to try them out in this new Uber-style type of clinic. Is he a doctor or an entrepreneur? Either way, he is definitely a maverick. Truth be told, he probably is a little bit of both. However, his dedication two cosmetic medicine continues to improve lives in Atlanta.
