When you set out to start your career some of the most important things that one to your success are the things that motivate you to be better than you were. For some people that drive to succeed is simply not strong enough and their dreams fall by the wayside. Dr. Mark McKenna never felt as though that was an option for his dreams. A CrunchBase article entitled “A Glimpse into What Drives Atlanta Entrepreneur Dr. Mark McKenna” discusses his budding medical aesthetics company and the drive that he has to help it succeed.
For a very early age, Dr. Mark McKenna knew that he wanted to contribute to the medical field. To that end, he enrolled himself Tulane medical school where he graduated and began work as both a surgeon and general medical practitioner. While he was initially committed to the medical field there was always a pull towards something more entrepreneurial. He had felt a desire to grow something from the ground up after seeing the medical practice that his father held. This spirit is one of the contributing factors that helped him create and then sell ShapeMed to the company Lifetime Fitness Inc. for a substantial profit.
His newest endeavor is OVME. OVME is all about elective surgery and the process of making it a more patient-focused experience. The reason why something like OVME was so important to Dr. Mark McKenna is that he had worked in the medical field and he saw the growing need for professionals who were patient-focused in this field. It can become a little jailing to work in an industry where a lot of the work is not necessary. The problem is that even though the procedures might say that they are elective it does not mean that it’s an optional thing for the patient. They may be engaging in this process for several reasons, and these doctors could potentially be changing their lives. Dr. Mark McKenna has created a way for professionals to provide a better standard of care for these individuals through his practice OVME. It is his hope that his legacy will impact many facets of healthcare.
Atlanta is about to get a lot more beautiful. Renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Mckenna, a pioneer in the field of Medical Aesthetics, has just announced the opening of his new, state-of-the-art facility in Buckhead. OVME, pronounced of me, is a “medical aesthetic experience” featuring four luxurious and private treatment rooms, offering all the latest in treatments.
Dr. Mark Mckenna, a graduate of Tulane Medical School, has always had an itch to innovate. Rather than follow the traditional routes through the medical field, upon graduation in 1999, Mckenna went into real estate. When Hurricane Katrina cut a tragic swath through his territory, Mckenna decided to make a change. He moved to Atlanta and made his first attempt at medical entrepreneurship, opening a chain of cosmetic treatment, nutrition, and weight counseling offices, calling his new venture ShapeMed. He sold the business to a chain of gyms, continuing to work with the company for another year, but he missed the challenges and rewards of running his own business. Out of that, OVME was born.
Dr. Mark Mckenna first envisioned his new venture as an Uber-like service for Botox patients. He foresaw a time when patients would pull out their smartphones, and with a few swipes of an app, have an appointment for a house call. While the initial plan was eventually found to be unworkable, for now, it did get Mckenna’s innovative mind churning. OVME 2.0 was built on a deconstructed vision of medical aesthetics that is client-focused, and highly curated to the client’s needs.
The experience at OVME is highly customizable, with Dr. Mark Mckenna and his team providing one-on-one consultations to create care-plans that are personal and focused on long-term results. OVME also provides a comprehensive series of membership packages, at different pricing levels, that include exclusive discounts, access to special events, free monthly treatments, and, for those busy Atlanta professionals, same-day Botox appointments.
OVME, located at 3167 Peachtree Road NE, in Atlanta, opened its doors on March 1st, and Dr. Mark Mckenna and his staff are sure to keep innovating and designing a one-of-a kind medical aesthetic experience.
Dr. Mark McKenna is a medical maverick, entrepreneur, and the CEO of OVME, which is a company that is looking to offer people a fresh medical aesthetic experience to make them look and feel their best. McKenna recently sold his business idea ShapeMed to Lifetime Fitness and was more than happy to reinvest in his new business idea. The OVME offices in the Buckhead area are looking to offer clients luxury treatment rooms and private offices for consultations. McKenna commented recently that OVME is in business to refresh a stale aesthetic medical industry with its offerings and through technology that is looking to give elective healthcare a makeover.

Dr. Mark McKenna has always impressed his patients, and he is a celebrity of sorts in his own community that is known to advocate and work for his patients. His procedures are minimally invasive, and for years he has worked to create a client-facing business model that is transparent. part of the excitement about OVME stems from the fact that it is moving away from a one-size-fits-all business model and moving towards individual care that uses modern technology to ensure its success. Along with skin and facial offerings, OVME is focusing on providing its patients with Botox and Dysport injections to make them look and feel more youthful and also plans on offering other health and body services.
Dr. Mark McKenna is proud to be a part of giving back to his community, but this isn’t the first time he has done so. he grew up in New Orleans and was there when Hurricane Katrina struck. He watched as his own business interests and those of many others were wrecked by the hurricane, and he also witnessed the massive loss of homes in the area. Instead of running away, he stayed around for years to ensure that people had homes. He helped to build many of these with his own hands, which went to house low and middle-income families. Dr. Mark McKenna is looking forward to continuing to be a part of the community he lives in, and he knows that OVME is going to change the lives of many people in the area.
Adam Milstein has been steadfast in his work to raise awareness for the plight of Jewish people. He has authored numerous articles highlighting the dangers that anti-Semitic sentiment can have against Jewish people, gay individuals and women.
In a recent article posted on JSN (Jewish News Syndicate) Milstein profiled the anti-Semitic messages being spread by radical Muslims, which has been present in the radical right and growing in the radical left.
Milstein’s articles focus on gaining awareness of the war that anti-Semitism has been brought upon numerous individuals such as the stoning of women, execution gays and the blatant disregard for freedom of speech and tolerance.
Radical Islam groups mainstream Muslims and the radicals and refer to them all as “a people oppressed by the West.” Milstein states. He states that the far left has long been slandering the “national state of the Jewish people,” and those that support it, the right has worked with radical Muslims to spread hatred and murder those of Jewish descent.
Feeling Positive About the Future:
In an article posted in February 2018, Adam Milstein wrote that while Antisemitism is on the rise on both the Left and the Right and incidents of anti-Semitic actions rose 67% in 2017, up from 2016, there are signs that Jewish people are taking a stand.
Milstein sees optimism in new leadership and sees those shaping tomorrow future as young people that have visited Israel and establish a new connection to their homeland; those that continue to instill a strong Jewish identity in their children and teenagers that are active in Tzofim and B’ne Akiva youth groups.
Dedicated to Humanitarian Causes:
Adam Milstein has always been concerned about those that threaten Americans and the Jewish people around the world.
Adam Milstein is an author, an entrepreneur, the national chairman of the Israeli American Council and is the president and co-founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. The Foundation offers charitable support and philanthropic services to the State of Israel, US/Israeli relations and organizations that support and strengthen Jewish people across the world.

With the current global uncertainty itching the entire world, several things have been evidenced. One is that capital flows are increasingly getting into the US, which in turn lowers the treasury rates causing debts and equity in throughout the New York. This has led to the recession, which has made investors seek safer markets, which they perceive sanctuaries for investing, and these havens would include NYC properties from major realtors like Town Residential.
Recently markets across the world have gotten a nasty blow with the exit of the UK from the European Union. Many investors are still left helpless, not knowing what more to expect, because the repercussions of the move seem too heavy to bear. Right now, they are not sure what to anticipate. They cannot tell whether the UK’s move will make other countries such as France, Denmark and Holland will follow suit or at least go to a referendum. It is still difficult to tell whether or how the UK will carry out its business or if Scotland will or might decide to seek independence.
Since 2009, the term ‘flight to equality’ has been common among investors. For them, it means the difference between losing all their wealth and salvaging it. At this time, the world economy was collapsing, the US’s was also shaky, but the investors would rather invest here as they were still convinced it was safer, many invested in NYC Properties. Things got worse in 201, and the country’s economy at the time was at standard and poor, with a 500 index (i.e., from AAA to AA). However, it was shocking that even at this period, even more, capital came in from other markets across the world. It could be then concluded that the Nation was perceived to be safest of all world markets to invest, even in the face of economic turmoil.
With the flight to quality going on, it is the residents of New York City who stands to benefit most. Its ever-growing population, coupled with a steady economy attracts more investors. So far, the NYC Metro is the top employer, according to US Bureau of Labor Statistics, offering up to 9.5 million jobs. The city also enjoys debt market, which in turn pulls the investors in, to invest in the NYC properties business. Going forward, the NYC the city will continue to enjoy robust economic growth as a result of investors flight to quality.
