Avery M. Scheiner, MD, FAAD

A Magna Cum Laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Scheiner earned his medical degree at New York University School of Medicine. Following his internship in internal medicine, Dr. Scheiner completed his dermatology residency at the New York University Medical Center Skin and Cancer Unit where he continued his affiliation, teaching and supervising dermatology residents for over 17 years.

Dr. Scheiner is well known for his expertise in medical, surgical, cosmetic, and laser dermatology. His opinions and consultations are frequently sought out for their insight and his expertise on emerging dermatologic therapies.

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

A Summa Cum Laude graduate of Cornell University. Dr. Beer received her MD degree and election to the AOA medical honor society from the University of Miami School of medicine.

Dr. Beer offers 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 Dr. Beer's  practice is that she treats the whole family, from newborn to grandparent, from medical to cosmetic. Also, since her training included both Internal Medicine and Dermatology, she is able to treat her patients with a deeper understanding of their medical situation. On any given afternoon, she 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 she hopes 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 is a Cum Laude graduate of Dartmouth College with an honors degree in Art History.  Dr. Zeitler earned her medical degree and MBA from New York University.  She completed her medical training at Mt. Sinai hospital and did her residency in dermatology at Montefiore Hospital and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Dr. Zeitler has used her background in art history to refine her approach to aesthetic dermatology.  Using a wide variety of the most advanced and cutting edge tools, Dr. Zeitler is able to create a personalized plan that not only corrects signs of aging, but also maintains a natural youthful appearance.

The procedures Dr. Zeitler offer include a wide variety of injectable fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Refyne, Defyne, Kysse, Radiesse), and neurmodulators (Botox, Dysport).  In addition, Dr. Zeitler performs laser procedures to treat brown spots, blood vessels, acne scars and rosacea.
