I had my 2nd appt just yesterday, 1/12/17. A side from Dr. Kaegi owning qualities such as caring, understanding and patience, (along w many others, as I listed in my first review) I learned a few more yesterday, that are extremely rare to come by. Dr. Kaegi shows concern and compassion, as he listens to you and what you want/need in the most NON-judgmental manner. Customizing/formulating a regimen that works in your best interest and you are happy with. He is extremely intelligent, honest and compromising. I would continue to be lost, as I was, without him. Thank you Dr. K, for already making a difference in my life. -iz

He was very friendly and professional! I haven't been around many doctors but I have been around people that care and his calm demeanor shows me that he takes his job seriously. I would definitely recommend this doctor to anyone.

I was referred to Dr Kaegi by my GP to discuss medications to address insomnia and lethargy. Within 6 months, I had made significant progress. I am NOT there for psychotherapy, so I have no expectations in that regard. He is careful about prescribing medication, so don't expect a pushover. He's very calming and efficient. I go in every three months to review medications so he can monitor their efficacy. We works for me!

I saw Dr. Kaegi for the first time on Monday, December 19th. Although it has been about 3 weeks since my visit, writing this review is something I have been eager to do within the first 10 minutes of meeting him. I ran almost an hour late, due to an accident on the way. Dr. Kaegi not only understood (especially considering how busy he is) but made time to still see me between other patients as opposed to turning me away. He also took his time with me, (as I felt nowhere near rushed) asking me several questions along with written quiz-like questionnaires, so that he was able to determine the healthiest most effective way to treat me. I could honestly say I immediately took comfort with Dr. Kaegi. He is nothing short of everything one would want as their Doctor. He is intelligent, kind, patient, caring, selfless and what I appreciated most NONjudgemental. You truly walk away confidently knowing that he only wants what is in your best interest. I have never posted a review about anything before. However, I was dedicated to posting this one about my experience in regard to a wonderful and beyond deservant Doctor. For the first time in a long, long time, I feel good and positive within myself and for my future as I take absolute comfort that I finally have the right guidance. I couldn't be happier with my decision to see Dr. Kaegi, nor could I be more grateful to have him recommended to me.

I guess psychiatrists nowadays don't "do" therapy....just push big Pharma as a solution instead of finding a true resolution of the problem. So be it....gets me through life.

I feel that as a psychiatrist, he could have been more welcoming and personable. Instead, I felt no sort of comfort seeking help from him. It was all very cut and dry.

I made an error and thought he was still in my insurance network. He corrected me, I apologized for wasting his time, and got up to go. I was upset and teary, and he suggested the ER - as if that would do anything. The second I began to show one shred of emotion, he shut down. Told me "I don't like this. I can't help you." And threw me out - while talking to my roommate like she was my mother. Don't go see this man if you're female or you have visible emotions. Because God forbid a psychiatrist understand that depressed people may become upset. What an utter jerk.

Pill pusher. I made an appointment in hopes of receiving help with my depression and then meds i had been described by my GP. Waste of time and money. I'm more upset now then I was before the appointment. Shouldn't leave a psychiatrists office in tears, but I sure did. He is not a welcoming person, very cold, barely made eye contact. Would not recommend, unless you need a prescription refill.

Dr. Kaegi is very matter of fact and clinical-- a great fit for me and how I choose to approach the topic of mental health. I suspect it may feel a bit sterile to some or those who are new to psychiatric treatment but, for those who are interested in discussing challenges and solutions (vs. strictly feelings), he is a great option.

This doctor has a morality issue w/ some of the meds that a shrink is able to prescribe. A moral doctor. hahah. He refuses to dispense benzos even if you've been on them for years. And when asked about the withdrawls and hospitalization I'd have to go through w/o meds he acted like it was no big deal. If you want to see someone who treats you like a drug addict, by all means tell dr. death I say hi.

I didn't like him at all, his office was self service, it didn't seem professional, I thought he was arrogant, and has too many patients to give you any proper attention. I felt like I was just a $Number$ to him. He has signs on his door stating that any refills of medication will only be given on an office visit, meaning, your pharmacist will not get any authorizations when you need re fills. Also, when filling out his paperwork I noticed he has a schedule of fees he charges for anything that is not handled during your 10 minute office visit. I want a doctor that works for me around my schedule and not the other way around. Don't waste your time with this guy, he's all about himself and what he can get out of you! I wouldn't recommend him for my dog, let alone an emotionally connected patient!
