Dr Erin Looney at Boston Sports Medicine - they are in Allston right off the pike behind Pizzeria Regina (formerly Sports Depot). Plenty of parking ~

Well, perhaps you did such damage now as to really need a doctor, but what are you really expecting him to do?  I'd start with rest, foam roller, self or professional massage to break up the scar tissue as it heals.  Active recovery- i.e. water running, perhaps cycling.  doing something to keep it moving, but that doesn't hurt it more. perhaps just go right to a sports physical therapist. 

you need to heal, and a doctor can't just heal you.  here's an interesting little article:

Oh god I blew out a hamstring a few years ago and it took me almost three months to get back, I think I was limping for three weeks or more. A Dr. told me that it looked like it was a 90/95% torn, the bruise was from but cheeck to knee.

I iced and used a tennis ball that was it, theres no magic or speedy recovery from torn muscles, sorry.

GOOD LUCK !!!

Studies have shown a correlation between pedaling at a high cadence and running at a high cadence, which leads to faster running. The shorter your ground contact time , the less chance for injury.

Could this be related to IT band problems or someone thought it might be bursitis and what should I do to treat it? Also, should I see a sports med doc or orthopedic specialist?

Running does not cause injury. Poor running form does. Running is more enjoyable, and safer if you know what you’re doing. And yes, even old dogs can learn new tricks.
