Dr Robyn Cadet

A Word from Dr. Cadet

First, I would like to thank you for taking a moment to explore our website.

I have been a board certified pediatrician practicing in Nassau County for over sixteen years. I grew up in Westbury, New York (right next door to Carle Place, where my office is located). I attended MCP – Hahnemann School of Medicine (now known as Drexel University School of Medicine) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and completed my Pediatric residency at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York. I married my high school sweetheart and together, we have three beautiful children of our own. Pediatrics is not just my career, it is my passion and I care for each child that walks through the door of my office with the same care and compassion that I show to my own children.

At Child Life Pediatrics, I am truly committed to your family. I believe that the role of a pediatrician is the most unique of all other medical providers. Your pediatrician should be a part of your family. She should be someone that not only parents and caregivers can rely on and turn to, but also a person that your child trusts and feels comfortable with. I realize that, as your pediatrician, you have trusted me with your life’s most treasured blessing… your child. I take that very seriously. I will be a valuable resource to you and your family as I guide you through the vast and often overwhelming journey of parenthood. Full open communication is encouraged and I welcome your questions and dialogue to ensure your comfort, trust and understanding. I am dedicated to providing the utmost of medical care to your children and I hope to create a lasting bond between your family and me. This is the mission of my practice.

At Child Life Pediatrics, we ARE a family. I strive to offer an environment that is relaxed, friendly and comfortable while being a place where you and your family will be provided the tools essential to the optimal health and well being of your children. In addition, I believe that children thrive and grow in an environment that is enjoyable and where their individual personalities are known and appreciated. That is what Child Life is all about. I take time at each visit to get to know your child and make sure that they know that they are special. Your appointment will not be just “a visit”. I take time at each visit to ensure that it is learning EXPERIENCE for the WHOLE family about caring for your bodies, optimizing health and well being, preventative care as well as anticipatory guidance. I want to make sure that when you leave my office to go home, all of your questions and concerns have been addressed. You will NEVER leave my office feeling rushed or confused. In fact, after one visit, you’ll see, most children don’t want to leave at all!!

I look forward to meeting you.
Welcome to Child Life, Welcome home….

Dr Robyn CadetGod bless you,
Robyn Cadet, MD. FAAP
