In the field of cosmetic surgery, not only are the procedures advancing with the rest of technology but so are the interfaces in which patients communicate with medical professionals. While it is fairly commonplace for hospitals and larger medical practices to offer patient portals online as well as apps that can be accessed through the patient’s phone or tablet, it’s almost unheard of for cosmetic procedures. Dr. Mark McKenna hopes to change that with his new cosmetic procedure chain OVME. OVME was created by Dr. Mark McKenna with the intention of being the what Uber is for passengers but for Botox and other minor cosmetic procedure patients.
OVME is based out of Atlanta, Georgia but has plans to expand to locations across the United States. While OVME may only have opened its doors in 2017, it is already one of the national leaders in the industry of medical aesthetics. The tech-enabled company includes methods for patients to interact with doctors electronically that will allow free-lance physicians to make house calls to the patients where it is convenient and comfortable for them. This coincides with brick and mortar retail locations that are set up with the patients’ needs in mind. Dr. Mark McKenna designed OVME to be a luxury experience for patients who want the best experience with their cosmetic procedures. They are designed to look more like a spa than a medical facility.
Before opening OVME, Dr. Mark McKenna owned Shape Medical Wellness Center in Atlanta, also known as ShapeMed. This facility was known as one of the best facilities in the Atlanta area for non-surgical cosmetic procedures and weight loss. ShapeMed was also driven by the needs of the patients and understood that each patient’s needs will differ from the rest.
After the sale of ShapeMed to Lifetime Fitness, Dr. Mark Mckenna stayed on their staff for about a year before moving on to his own endeavors. While he earned his medical degree at Tulane University School of Medicine, Dr. Mark Mckenna is also an extremely successful businessman and entrepreneur.
Nick Vertucci believes that the past is not a dictator of the future. You should defy all the odds in your life to become a success. According to Nick, obstacles are a stepping-stone into greatness.
Nick Vertucci was born in an average family where albeit the basic needs were met, there was no excessive supply. However, the condition changed when he was 9 years old when his father died. The mother was devastated by the news but she had to pick up the pieces fast to fend for the family. She worked long hours and took multiple jobs to meet the needs. Nick says that most times her mother came when they were already asleep as she worked night shifts to make extra money.
When Nick Vertucci hit 18 years, he left the home and started living in a van. Life was difficult but he was positive that he would one day make it. The big break came when Nick started selling computer parts and became an instant success. He made enough money since the computers were in high demand during the period.
Dot Com Crash
However, the unforeseen came when the dot-com crash hit the computer industry in 2000.Nick lost his business as customers no longer bought the goods. Unfortunately, he had no savings, a factor that made him lose most of his assets. For a span of 18 months, Nick had no income, and he lived off debts.
Real Estate Conference
One day a friend who was going to a real estate conference invited him. Although Nick Vertucci was apprehensive, he attended the conference. It was in that meeting that he found his purpose. Albeit he did not understand most of the content, he felt it was his way out of debt.
It took Nick ten years to learn the secrets that would make him rich in real estate. He is now a billionaire who has set up the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy (NVREA) to educate others on real estate. His vision is to ensure that no one is entrapped in debts while they can make millions in real estate.
