Whether you call it elective healthcare, or you state that it’s elective medical care, this industry is one in the same. The elective field of the medical industry provides services that aren’t mandatory, but rather offers procedures to enhance your life. There is one man that understands this notion perfectly, and he is known as Dr. Mark McKenna. This accomplished medical doctor is also a businessman. He has been the owner of a plethora of successful businesses ever since he graduated from medical school. During his early days, Dr. Mark McKenna worked at his father’s medical practice for five years. Shadowing his father has helped him to become a better overall person, especially in the business world.
There is a lot of work that goes on from behind the scenes such as in the billing and reimbursement areas. Of course, every industry has its demands, but the medical field just happens to be another beast in itself. “I’ve noticed how doctors tend to drive nice cars,” said McKenna in a jokingly manner. While working with his father, Dr. Mark McKenna branched-out into real estate. McKenna Venture Investments was his new business, and over the years, he started to earn a very good living. This business helped to grow his overall-business portfolio. In 2005, McKenna’s business was decimated by Hurricane Katrina, and he lost most of his contacts. His new plan was to give back to the community while rebuilding his own empire. Dr. Mark McKenna participated in the rebuilding phase of New Orleans, which helped hundreds of people with housing.
Shortly after relocating to Atlanta, Dr. Mark McKenna went on an elective-healthcare blitz by founding two of the regions most prestigious practices. ShapeMed and OVME were the names and medical aesthetics was the game. These two practices helped to build the confidence in people, which carried over into their personal lives. The facilities hosted an abundance of non-invasive as well as minimal-invasive procedures. As of now, Dr. Mark McKenna is living the good life and the future seems to be looking even brighter.
