It is said that the more you learn, the less you know. However, according to Mikhail Varshavski, also known as the social media star "Doctor Mike," we have too many people who believe they know it all, also referred to as "I Know All" (IKA) experts.

In his passionate talk, Doctor Mike asks us to celebrate doctors who are self-aware and say, "I don't know." He also draws the importance on asking the right questions and being aware of medical research limitations and conclusions.

Better known as "Doctor Mike", Dr. Mikhail Varshavski is a social media entrepreneur, philanthropist, and a doctor with purpose, stressing the importance of preventative medicine by highlighting his experiences through his unique journey. Doctor Mike started documenting his medical journey through his popular social media platforms to motivate students to pursue their medical training. He graduated from the New York Institute of Technology in 2014, with a B.S in Life Sciences and a Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine via an accelerated seven-year track. On June 30, 2017, he completed his three-year Family Medicine Residency at the Atlantic Health System-Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ.
