LONG BEACH - A Long Beach doctor is being accused of sexual harassment by three former employees.

The women claim they were fired by Dr. Edward Kleiner because they didn't want to be in the room while he performed artificial insemination on a patient, a procedure the women - secretaries Samantha Romanger and Lauren Schlanger and office manager Shivon Super - say Kleiner, a family practitioner, was not licensed to do.

Efforts by News 12 Long Island to reach Kleiner, who owns Beach and Surf Medical on West Beech Street, were unsuccessful.
