The many procedures he performs include skin cancer surgery, Botox injections, laser destruction of brown age/sun spots, laser destruction of blood vessels, mole removal, and laser rejuvenation of sun damaged/wrinkled skin.

Dr. Scheiner is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.


Jacqueline Beer, MD, FAAD

I am a summa cum laude graduate of Cornell University. I received my MD degree and election to the AOA medical honor society from the University of Miami School of medicine.

I offer many procedures including skin cancer surgery, Botox/Dysport injections, fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Kybella), chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and laser treatments for the removal of brown spots and blood vessels, rosacea, scar repair, and rejuvenation to reduce wrinkling and sun damage. The unique feature of my practice is that I treat the whole family, from newborn to grandparent, from medical to cosmetic. Also, since my training includes both Internal Medicine and Dermatology, I am able to treat my patients with a deeper understanding of their medical situation. On any given afternoon, I may treat acne in a teenager, laser his mom’s brown spots, prescribe something for his dad’s psoriasis, freeze warts on his sister’s feet, operate on his grandfather’s skin cancer, and inject botox into his aunt’s forehead. It’s unusual to be a “family doc” of sorts in Manhattan and I hope to be doing it for many years to come!

Dr. Beer is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.


Elizabeth Zeitler, MD, FAAD

I am a board certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon specializing in a full range of medical and cosmetic dermatology. I attended Dartmouth College and received my degree in Art History. I attended New York University where I received both a medical degree and an M.B.A. I finished my medical training at Mt.Sinai Hospital and my dermatology training at Albert Einstein Hospital. I am an attending physician at Lenox Hill Hospital.

The procedures I offer include skin cancer screenings, skin cancer surgery, Botox injections, dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Volbella and Kybella) and a full range of laser procedures to treat sun damage, wrinkles and broken blood vessels including the Fraxel Dual Repair. I feel it is important to offer comprehensive care because many skin concerns have overlapping features which need to be treated by different modalities. In addition, I feel that my background in visual arts helps me to have a unique perspective on my cosmetic procedures.
