Early life and education
Varshavski was born November 12, 1989. He was born in Russia, where his father was a physician and his mother was a mathematics professor. When he was six, he and his family immigrated to Brooklyn. In Brooklyn, his mother had to work sweeping floors for minimum wage, while his father attended medical school for the second time.
Varshavski was given the nickname "Doctor Mike" during his high school by friends who came to him for sports-related injuries knowing that Varshavski's father is a physician. He graduated from the New York Institute of Technology with a bachelor's degree in life sciences and as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine via an accelerated 7-year combined track. During his first year of medical school, his mother died of leukemia.
