Meet Dr. Mikhail Varshavski: The 26-year-old doctor, who was crowned People's "Sexiest Doctor Alive" in November 2015, is currently doing his family practice residency at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New Jersey. As busy as he is curing patients and turning heads in his scrubs, Varshavski was kind enough to answer our readers' most pressing health questions. Every week, he'll be addressing your concerns and curiosities on video.
This week's question comes from an anonymous reader: "I recently fell down the stairs when the heel of one of my shoes broke. Luckily, I didn't break or sprain anything, but I did get a huge bruise on my right glute that seems to be getting worse and still hurts. Do bruises always heal, as I suspect, and you just have to wait for them to get worse before they get better—or is there ever a reason to worry and see a doctor?"
