This is the story of Dr. Mark McKenna whose journey took him from medicine to real estate and investing and back to medicine. Immediately after graduation from Tulane University, Dr. McKenna went to work as a doctor in his father’s practice. He quickly realized however that this was not the field of medicine he once knew. Treatment was controlled by insurance companies and he was struggling to earn a decent living. In order to pay his medical school loans, he began to privately invest his money. He became very good at it and after five years he left medicine and opened his own real estate development and investment firm.
Dr. Mark McKenna became a financial success and found that this new line of work was a satisfying challenge to him. However, hurricane Katrina hit his housing area in 2005 and as a result of the storm’s devastation, he lost millions. He never stopped working through and found ways to help his community by buying and flipping houses for low-income residents. He worked with community agencies and lawmakers to rebuild homes that had been destroyed by the storm. This work reminded him that his true passion was helping people and he decided to once again become Dr. Mark McKenna.
He founded a company called ShapeMed to provide aesthetic medical services to men and women. This venture grew from a single clinic to a network and was eventually purchased by Life Time Fitness. Since he was in no way ready to stop working, Dr. Mark McKenna opened OVME Cosmetics. This is a client-oriented healthcare company that uses the latest technology to perform elective procedures. The goal of OVME is to ensure that all procedures are minimally invasive, patient-centered, and convenient. Dr. McKenna even stated that the operation is so simple that anyone can order and schedule surgery online.
OVME clinics not only offer cosmetic surgery but also provide testosterone replacement therapy and PRP hair loss treatments for men, and wellness services including precision weight management. This is the way Dr. Mark McKenna always thought medicine should work.
