Dr. Mark McKenna is a man with many different passions, and as an entrepreneur, he has been able to pursue quite a few of them. OVME, the retail aesthetics company that he founded, works to connect patients who are looking for quality healthcare professionals. This has allowed McKenna to draw on his entrepreneurial skills as well as his experience in medicine, and it is finding interested customers and success. OVME uses some of the latest technology to offer interested patients remote consultations, and these consultations then allow the patient to decide if they would like to pay for any of the services that can help them.
While Dr. Mark McKenna has announced that patients still will need to visit an OVME office, he is working to change that. This is being done through an app that will give patients the power to schedule appointments with the best healthcare professionals right in their office or home. Obviously, this is very convenient and also offers a level of privacy and comfort that no one else does. As a client-driven practice, this is exactly what Dr. Mark McKenna wants for OVME, and he is planning on using more innovations in the future to provide patients even more.
Earlier in Dr. Mark McKenna’s life, he had studied to be a doctor at the Tulane University Medical School in New Orleans. Instead of pursuing medicine in the beginning of his career, he went into real estate. He made plenty of money in New Orleans, but that was before Hurricane Katrina struck. After the tragedy, a lot of his real estate business was devastated, but he stayed around and helped to rebuild the city by working on low income housing for people. After he had done a lot for the people of New Orleans, he decided to move to Atlanta, Georgia and get back into the medical field. After Dr. Mark McKenna created and sold his successful company, ShapeMed, he decided to move on and create OVME. Today, he draws on all of his experience to create the best modern, aesthetic medical company in the United States.
Dr. Mark McKenna got his MD at Tulane School of Medicine. He graduated in 1999. Before leaving the school, he realized it was hard to make a lot of money as a doctor. After graduation, he decided not to stick to medical practice and instead went ahead to venture into the Real Estate market of New Orleans.
However, in 2005 he lost millions when Hurricane Katrina struck.
He is currently 43 and is working on opening a new company new early next year named ‘OVME’.
He aims to create a countrywide chain of medical cosmetic offices along with an application that will act as an uber for Botox patients. The residents of Atlanta are eagerly waiting for the medical aesthetic experience. OVME will feature four private luxury treatment rooms along with a separate office for consultations.
For Dr. Mark McKenna OVME is a product of the combination of medical aesthetics and technology. He hopes to help the Atlanta residents discover their true selves. Dr. Mark McKenna has become famous for his advocacy for his patients along with the aim to reduce the risks by ensuring the invasive procedures are as minimal as possible.
Dr. Mark McKenna in his recent interview stated that they are going into design, technology, and data to provide a unique experience for the patients.
There used to be somewhat of a stigma surrounding botox, one which has significantly waned as the product and practice have become increasingly popular. One of the individuals who has decided to not just practice botox injections but to pioneer the field itself, is Dr. Mark McKenna who has recently launched a new project called, OVME (“of me”), which, the good doctor hopes, will be to the cosmetics field what Uber has been for personal transportation.
Dr. Mark McKenna acquired his degree at Tulane Medical School where, after graduating, he discerned that he could forge a more successful career as a entrepreneur than as a practicing doctor.
OVME today operates under the promise of delivering cutting edge “curated medical aesthetic experiences in contemporary and welcoming environments.” In interviews Mr. McKenna has stated that his previous experience has revealed the importance of putting one’s business premium upon user experience, thus, the goal was to build a brand around a already established brand. As McKenna explains it in one of his recent interviews, there is a lot of customer recognition and trust in Botox, but very few retailers and businesses have the same level of trust with the product user base; OVME, hopes to change all of that and present a business which users will appreciate and trust as much as Botox itself.
