I've had therapists for years. There's always been part of me that has expected psychiatrists to be the same way. It always seemed strange that you would go into the field of mental health while being so cold and unfeeling. I braced myself for that before I went. Dr Kaegi met all of my expectations and I will continue to see him. I can schedule appointments online and he continues to refill prescriptions I have had for years. He runs over a check list to see how I'm doing and issues me 6 months of refills. That's all I need out of a psychiatrist. I feel like I wouldn't really trust a diagnosis from him...he's great at medication management though.

Came to him regarding very troubling side effects with my meds. Awful bedside manner. Told me I "should just be grateful I was stable." Will not be going back.

My appointment was with Dr. Kaegi was awful. He was rude and totally distant. Calls his patients "customers" instead of patients. I felt attacked and uncomfortable from the second I set foot in the ugly outdated waiting room. Such a waste of time and over all a discouraging experience.

Dr. Kaegi always sees you right on time and has you in and out which I really appreciate. He's not super chatty but he is professional and has a calming, reassuring demeanor that I like. Highly recommend him if you don't need lots of talking with your MD.

Nothing exceptional. He doesn't seem to care that much about me, but I don't really care that much about him so I guess fair is fair. In the end it was timely, accepted my insurance, and he prescribed what I needed without any issues. I had only seen him once before but we had emailed the previous week a bit and he had no memory of that. He also did not consult any notes about me our my condition during our appointment.

Dr. Kaegi meets my needs 100%. It is very hard to find a psychiatrist who takes my insurance and has convenient scheduling--that is, I can usually get in to see him with relatively short notice (through this app). If you are looking for a psychiatrist who provides medication management plus psychotherapy, expect to pay out of pocket. It is best to come in prepared to describe what specific symptoms you are having and their intensity, how long you have been feeling this way, and what types of medications you are interested in exploring. Your visit will be maximized this way.

Been here twice, Dr. Kaegi has been very straightforward and professional. I've only waited at most a minute or two, but the visit itself doesn't feel rushed; he lets me go through my questions. Only downside is from my location it takes forever to get there by public transit, but you make have better luck. Highly recommended!

You will like dr Kaegi if you know what medications you want. He will give them to you, just ask. You will not like Dr Kaegi if you're looking for a deep-thinking psychiatrist who analyzes patients holistically. If it's difficult for you to talk to a dr about your problems, he is not for you. He is not, by any stretch of the imagination, an engaging conversationalist. He is also not a therapist or counselor by any means. He's a medical doctor who specializes in medications. He conducts his visits by asking you a series of questions and immediately asking what medications you've tried and what you like. If you need xanax, no need to beat around the bush. Just ask. One thing he is not, to his credit, is judgemental. His office is pretty lame; there's not even a receptionist. It's just two old doctors in a dusty old office in a blandly decorated office park in sauganash. However, if you need medication, he will accommodate you.

Dr. Kaegi is by far one of my least rated doctors I have seen over the years. He never smiles, provides eye contact, or shows any empathy during visits and is more focused on staring at his computer screen the entire visit. He never explains his thoughts and instead is focused on checking your blood pressure and printing out prescriptions from his behemoth computer. Would not recommend.

Dr Kaegi is super easy to talk to and incredibly open minded with his medications, my ADHD is managed and he's always sure to make sure I'm okay with the dosage. Checks my weight and blood pressure every visit to ensure although I may not notice, my body is still functioning healthily.

I trust Dr. Kaegi with medical decisions concerning my mental health. He is efficient and thorough, but not friendly, and that works perfectly for my needs. My depression has improved greatly under Dr. Kaegi's care. I appreciate his no-nonsense, results-oriented approach.

There was barely any wait time at all. Once I finished my paperwork, I was in. He gave me exactly the right medication for my condition. He has a great, non judgemental bedside manner. This is definitely my new psychiatrist.
