Dr. Kaegi is very down to business, bordering on curt, so, if you are expecting a therapist who will spend a lot of time listening to your feelings then he's not right for you. however, very knowledgable, and answered all my questions quickly and without any trace of judgement.

I do not recommend this doctor. I came to this appointment and was admittedly 15 minutes late. The doctor had his door open in a small office taking a medical call and called me in 5 minutes later. He asked me, with his door open why I was there and to disclose my medical history in an indiscreet location and said that even though he had taken the appointment after me (?) that he could not see me because he needed 30 minutes for an appointment and his next appointment would be in 25 minutes. He was very rude and unprofessional. I calmly explained that I had traveled a significant distance to see him and asked if there was anything that could be done and he expressed no empathy at all. Lacks discretion, empathy, and patient centeredness. Go elsewhere.

Dr. Kaegi seemed unconcerned with me as a person, and switched all my medications without more than a 5-minute initial consultation. The signs in his office in bold, all-caps print make it feel very unwelcoming - the practice seems to be focused on getting patients in and out as quickly as possible rather than detailed treatment.

He is helping me with several things. Excellent and patient with me and all of my questions. He gives me clear and concise answers to my questions.

This man clearly knows he has the power in the relationship and isn't afraid to show it. During my appointments I usually felt I had no agency. He stuck to his standard set of questions and resisted answering any questions and rarely considered new alternatives. He is a take it or leave it kind of person, who acts as if he can do no wrong. He might be able to help some people, but after 18 sessions with him I finally realized he was harming me more than helping.

He listens very well and offers short direct feedback. If you are expecting this to be therapy as well he is not your guy. If you have a therapist and need to get on medication. I recommend Dr. Kaegi. He gets right to the point. No bullshit.

Bad bedside manners which is very uncommon for a psychiatrist. Cuts you short when you try to explain your situation if he doesn't like something and he does not offer any encouragement or motivation, he is just there to prescribe meds.

Clear he is in this business for the paycheck and the paycheck only. Sure, he will write you the script you are seeking. On the other hand, if you want someone to really listen and at least act like they care about you and your symptoms.. I would go elsewhere.

Third time seeing Dr. Kaegi in several years, twice in the last couple months. Happy to say that I plan on having him as my regular Psychiatrist. He is no non-sense, professional, and straight forward. He is able to take your history and sort through that with the information available and develop a simple, long-term plan. Non-judgmental, and his experience and strong education shows. Appointments are not hard to get, and unlike some doctors, he’s not in this to enrich himself, but he wants his patients to be at their best in my opinion, and he doesn’t seem to force his opinions upon you, so as to have a preconceived notion about what types of medications and treatment plans are good or bad - he keeps an open mind. He will keep you on track and accountable, and has your best interests in mind with respect to his expertise, in my opinion. Surprised he still is accepting new patients.
