I have been unfortunate enough to need Dr. Cadet's expertise twice in the last year. Dr. Cadet and his staff have been terrific. The speed of service, the quality of care, the professionalism and knowledge of Dr. Cadet have been outstanding. I returned for a second injury and would highly recommend Dr. Cadet to others.

I went to Dr.Cadet last year because I was experiencing shoulder pain. As a 24 year old, I was very nervous about selecting a good physician who would be able to help me return to my active lifestyle and I am very happy with my decision. Dr.Cadet has since performed surgery on both of my shoulders. Dr.Cadet has excellent bedside manner and took the time to thoroughly discuss my injuries and treatment options with me. Dr.Cadet and his PA provide excellent care and I highly recommend them both

I found Dr. Cadet to be an excellent Orthopedic Surgeon. I had a Massive Rotator Cuff tear which he repaired. He was very thorough; answered every question; and completely put all my fears to rest. He was accurate in both the time it would take to recover as well as what I would experience after surgery. He is genuinely concerned for his patients and takes the time needed to assure them and give them proper instruction and exercise to increase healing and stability. Excellent Surgeon!!

Dr. Cadet performed hip arthroscopy for a labral tear. He explained the surgery, recovery, and physical therapy in addition to addressing all my questions and concerns all while putting me ease to have surgery. After surgery he stopped by to see me in recovery, called the next day to check in, and stopped by my first physical therapy session post surgery at the practice's physical therapy office. His bed side manner puts you at ease. He is prompt and professional. Excellent surgeon.

Dr. Cadet treated my hip pain with an injection and I have slept well and no longer think about how much my torn labrum is hurting me while walking, standing or sitting. I do yoga and walking without pain. Another orthopaedic office had recommended surgery. So glad I got a second opinion and a treatment that works for me (without surgery). Thank you, Dr. Cadet!

He replaced my left shoulder 3 years ago, and 3 months ago replaced my right shoulder. I have excellent movement in my left shoulder, and right shoulder is good enough after 3 months to start playing golf at a half swing. No pain, and almost full movement.

Dr Cadet is simply ok, he has a strange bedside manner- not very caring acting, not unfriendly just indifferent. I'm mainly giving him 1 star because every time I have an appointment with him, his staff calls and cancels less than 24 hours before. They always say, Dr Edwin can't make it to that location and needs to reschedule your appointment." I'm willing to go out on a limb and bet if I cancel less than 24 hours before my appointment, I will incur a cancellation fee.
in Fayetteville, NC |
Very caring, concerned and knowledgeable. Dr. Cadet took great care with my 15 year old son. He required hip surgery on both hips. Excellent bedside manner and rapport with my son. My son said he would not go to any other surgeon in the future if needed. Dr. Cadet has sparked an interest in my son to pursue a career in the medical field. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cadet to family and friends.
in Cary, NC |
Bedside manner of a porcupine. He was rude and sarcastic and apparently wanted me to decide how he should proceed. He had no professional opinion on how best to proceed. I won't go back, not to see him, anyway.
