I was so frustrated cuz I couldnt find a good doctor to really answer my questions until I met dr cadet and I must say she's very knowledgable and I feel at ease now that I finally have a real doctor to communicate with she follows up with you and is very concerned about her patients
in New York |
She is very thorough and took the time to explain things which I really appreciate that. I would definitely recommend her.
This review is for the office staff. I was never seen by the doctor. I had an appt at 1030am. I was checked in. I waited till 1108am to say something. The response was I am so sorry. Can we reschedule? Dr Cadet had an emergency and had to leave. However someone screwed up and forgot to call me in before she left. This is what I was so upset about. Whole morning wasted. Doesn't matter if the doctor is wonderful... If office staff is not competent it's not worth your time or health.

Dr. Cadet took the time to listen to me, answer my questions and actually explain what was going on. It is nice to find a dr. that still talks to her patients.

She is a very nice doctor. She helped me a lot. I am so happy to be a patient.
She made me feel very comfortable and I could tell she cared about making sure I left the office feeling more confident about my treatment and informed of my condition. All the staff are also very friendly and professional.

in New York, NY |
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Cadet because my rheumatologist had retired. We had one visit in which she took a full medical history, drew blood, said she would schedule an MRI and we would meet again in about six weeks. After no contact 2.5 months later, I called and asked why no MRI had been scheduled. The assistant said she would put a note on my file. I asked that my blood work results be sent to me and made no further appointment.

Dr.Cadet is great! She went over and above what you expect a doctor to do. She is a strong believer in educating her patients - which is half the battle of beating any disease. I would highly recommend her.

It was a very positive experience. Dr Cadet is extremely knowledgeable and was very patient with me. She gave me her diagnosis, printed out information for me to read, and created a plan. I was comfortable taking to her and was pleased with how carefully she asked questions and listened for my answers.
Very nice and informative! Made the experience quick, painless, and we had great conversation!
Excellent ! Dr Cadet was efficient, thorough and caring throughout the examination. She was informative and clear, explaining my condition and what my options were. I would definitely recommend her as an RA.
in Bronx, Bew York |
I went to Dr Cadet for a second opinion. She confirmed the diagnosis that my doctor believed it to be and agreed with the plan of action. She was extremely knowledgable, took time to fully explain her diagnosis, and printed out information for me to read. On top of all of this, she had a wonderful personality and was able to calm my fears.
Very friendly and helpful.
