She has dedicated her career to raising awareness of arthritis and autoimmune diseases which causes significant chronic pain and disability in the population, especially minority women. Her continuous clinical work, community outreach, and research in the field of arthritis and autoimmune diseases in addition to her participation in national arthritis education has resulted in her being a recipient of the Queens Leader Award by the Arthritis Foundation. To help address the significant health problem of arthritis and autoimmune diseases, Dr. Cadet has been involved with advocacy where she has served as a physician representative from NYC for the Arthritis Foundation.

Dr. Maggie plans to continue her quest in motivating individuals living with osteoporosis, arthritis and autoimmune diseases to advocate for themselves and learn more about their disease and treatments while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

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.

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.
