Dr. Cadet received her undergraduate degree at Georgetown University and her medical degree from Drexel University School of Medicine in Philadelphia. She went on to complete an Internal Medicine residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and then a fellowship in Rheumatology at New York University/Hospital for Joint Diseases. During her fellowship, Dr. Cadet was part of a small group of fellows to be selected to serve on the American College of Rheumatology subcommittees of Quality Measures. After completing her fellowship, Dr. Cadet was appointed as Director of Rheumatology at New York Hospital Queens/New York Presbyterian Healthcare System as well as Director of Student Education, which she held prior to moving on to Duke University Medical Center. Upon her return to Manhattan, Dr Cadet worked in a private practice affiliated with NYU Langone Medical Center where she is an Associate Clinical Professor. She was selected as a 2016 Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Dr. Cadet’s interests have always focused on women’s health issues such as osteoporosis, issues relating to arthritis, autoimmune diseases such as lupus, sports medicine, and motivating others to live a healthier lifestyle. As a former competitive figure skater, ballet dancer, pianist and current runner, Dr. Cadet understands the importance of keeping one’s joints, muscles, bones and immune system strong and healthy in order to maintain an active lifestyle and avoid serious injuries. 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. She has also met with the legislative staff of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Senator Charles Schumer at Capitol Hill to ask Congress to co-sponsor the Arthritis Prevention, Control, and Cure Act. She is an active athlete and completed the More Fitness half marathon for the third time in April 2016. She intends on running this race again in 2017 in honor of women battling bone and joint disease, lupus and other autoimmune diseases. For her knowledge in the area of sports medicine and autoimmune diseases, Dr. Maggie has also been featured in Essence, Prevention, The Ultimate Health Guide and online sites such as Lifescript and Everyday health. Her experiences as a rheumatologist were also captured in the book “Lupus: Real life, Real patients, Real Talk”. She is a mother, an accomplished speaker and writer, athlete and fitness enthusiast. 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.

Although she was running late, she called me to inform me and she was willing to work with me to find a time suitable for me. Dr Cadet is friendly and she cares about her patients. She thoroughly asked about my past health issues and ordered blood work and tests.
