Does anyone know if the 1933 German census is available, preferably online?  I am looking for a Dr. Selig in Berlin.

Ruth,
I am not aware of the 1933 German Census being available.
Things that might substitute include the 1931-32 Jewish Address book for Greater Berlin which you can find at
https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/metadata/34039536/0/
The page for "Selig" is at https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/image/34039536_1931_1932/497/
and the only Dr Selig that I see is Dr Dorothea Selig, but you should also consider alternative spellings such as Seelig which is a few pages earlier: https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/image/34039536_1931_1932/495/
That page includes a Dr Siegfried Seelig.

Another alternative is the 1939 non-Aryan Census which can be searched at
https://www.mappingthelives.org/
but it returns over 800 results for surnames containing Selig, and there does not seem to be an easy way to limit these to the Berlin area. If you had a more exact address, like Charlottenburg or Wilmersdorf (the main Jewish suburbs), or even a street address, the filtering functions would help a lot.

My final suggestion is the Berlin addressbook. You can choose your year from 1799 to 1970, and there is one from every year in the 1930s. See: https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/cms/141/
The relevant page from the 1933 addressbook is https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/image/34115495_1933/2574/
and it confirms that Dorothea was a Dr of Medicine.

I hope this helps,
