Rita V. Linkner, MD FAAD
My name is Rita V. Linkner, and I am a Board-certified Dermatologist who specializes in Cosmetics. I’m a New Yorker and the daughter of two immigrants from India, who came to the City decades ago to pursue their dreams. I graduated high school from Horace Mann, and my college career was spent majoring in Biology at Johns Hopkins University. I tell my patients that spending four years in Florida getting my medical school degree from the University of Miami was the best four years of my life. Partly, because Miami is where I met my husband, Evan. Together we have two kids, our son, Asher, and our daughter, Loni. When I am not seeing patients, you can find me juggling entrepreneurial pursuits with motherhood.
My mother is an Anesthesiologist/Pain Management Physician, and I grew up shadowing her in the hospital. She taught me how to treat people like the gold that they are. Her job, in essence, is to take away people’s pain. It doesn’t get more convincing than that in medicine. My father is a Graphic Designer who owned his own printing press for over three decades in Manhattan. He taught me how to balance science with art, a concept that I take advantage of daily in my work.
