What Type Of Doctor Is YouTuber Doctor Mike?

Dr. Mike Varshavaski or, as he's better known on social media and amidst all his TV appearances, Dr. Mike, rocketed to fame back in 2015, thanks to a Buzzfeed article called "Um, You Really Need To See This Hot Doctor And His Dog." That led to a huge leap in followers on his Instagram and YouTube channels, and the young doctor and his undeniably good looks started getting a lot of attention which eventually led to him being named People's Sexiest Doctor Alive of 2015.

But the Russian-born social media sensation isn't just good looks and TV appearances. He really is a doctor, and if you follow his YouTube channel, you know he is all about showing his fans what life for a medical practitioner is like behind the scenes at both his practice and while doing rounds in the hospital while simultaneously educating and promoting health and wellness to his followers.

According to his hospital biography, Varshavaski believes in a preventative care approach to medicine and is using his social media presence to inform viewers how "small lifestyle changes can make a big impact on quality of life as well as health outcomes."

YouTuber Doctor Mike is a primary care physician in New Jersey

In case you're suddenly feeling like you should get that physical you've been putting off for way too long, Dr. Mike is a primary care physician at Chatham Family Medicine in Chatham, NJ and he is affiliated with Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ. 

His biography indicates that he graduated magna cum laude from New York Institute of Technology and then went on to medical school at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. 

If you live in the NY/NJ area you are probably seriously considering dumping your current doc and making an appointment with Dr. Sexy, however, you might want to really consider whether you want the 31-year-old runway model doctor examining you in a paper gown and diagnosing your foot fungus. You're probably just better off following Dr. Mike on Instagram with the rest of his 4 million followers where you can enjoy both his fashion photo shoots and adorable candids which feature plenty of photos of the celebrity doc cuddling with his favorite furry friend, his dog Bear.
