As a practicing pediatric rheumatologist, Dr. Lapidus provides comprehensive and personalized care to children and adolescents with pediatric rheumatic diseases. With special interest and expertise in autoinflammatory diseases, she is leading multidisciplinary efforts to benefit patients with recurrent fever syndromes, autoinflammatory bone disease, vasculitis, lupus, pain, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

At present, she can be found on staff at Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, New Jersey & Hackensack Meridian Health Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, New Jersey.

Her internship and residency in pediatrics followed at Schneider Children’s Hospital, now Cohen Children’s Medical Center in Queens, New York (2003-2006). 

Wanting to further her training, she completed a fellowship in pediatric rheumatology at The Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University/ Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware (2006-2009). She also completed a pediatric rheumatology and research fellowship through the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (2007-2009), where she did translational research in periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and adenitis (PFAPA).

As leader of the CARRA PFAPA Work Group and co-leader of the Kawasaki Disease Work Group, she has worked in multi-center, collaborative efforts to standardize treatments.
