Dr. Mark McKenna Starts Up Businesses

Dr. Mark McKenna was attending Tulane Medical School when he realized that it would be difficult to make a good income as a physician. Instead of pursuing a career as a physician long term, Mark looked to build a real estate business in New Orleans. While the venture was very prosperous for a number of years, the business lost millions of dollars immediately due to Hurricane Katrina. After the storm, he would rebuild his company but then dissolve it within a year. Mark would then move to Atlanta, Georgia where he would start up a new company called ShapeMed. This company provides a number of services such as nutrition and weight counseling, laser hair removal and Botox injections. He later sold that company and then started up a new one called OVME which will be a chain of cosmetic medical offices with an app. The company will serve as an UBER for Botox patients.

Dr. Mark McKenna chose business over medicine due to a number of reasons. With insurance reimbursements, he realized that it would be difficult for physicians to make a sufficient income. He found this out when he was working with his father who was also a physician. Instead of being a physician, Mark decided to get into real estate investing. While he was in medical school, he would perform physicals for prisoners for $50 per hour. This gave him the funds to acquire investment properties. With a number of properties, Mark was making over $500,000 per year and had up to $5 million worth of properties. However, Hurricane Katrina would cause Mark to lose millions of dollars. However, he would recover by acquiring distressed properties, fixing them and selling them. He would also move to Atlanta to start up OVME in order to meet the growing demand for services offered through apps.

In March, Dr. Mark McKenna opened up OVME which is his newest medical aesthetics company. He will serve the Buckhead area in Atlanta which will provide a number of minimally invasive medical procedures that will help people improve their appearance. The new company developed by Dr. Mark McKenna will consist of individual consultations along with procedures such as Botox. As well as offering beneficial medical services, Mark will create this business through an app which can allow patients to request appointments and procedures on demand from their phone.
