Dr. Charles has a soft-spoken no-nonsense manner about him, and he is thorough, knowledgeable, and punctual with our appointments. I see him monthly to adjust my medication, and I am completely satisfied with how well office visits and treatments help me to manage my conditions.

I've only seen Dr. Kaegi once, and it wasn't a very long appointment. I was seen just a couple minutes after my appointment time, and making my appointment was fast and easy. The appointment itself was fine, nothing stood out as exceptional, but nothing was negative either. I would go back.

Dr. Kaegi was very straight to the point in my session with him. He had me fill out a couple questionaires and then followed that up with his recommended course of action. In doing so, he provided me with multiple courses of action and mostly put me in the driver's seat. Great 'no nonsense' psychiatrist that wants the best for his patients.

Went to see Dr. Kaegi for a follow up and he was courteous as always and answered all my questions. I only waited 10 minutes after my initial appointment time which I didn't mind since it was a quick one and had no problem paying my bill while in the office. Always a pleasure with Dr. Kaegi and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a kind and understanding doctor.

I love Dr. Kaegi. He's always patient and kind, takes my suggestions on what I think would help me most without judgement, offers helpful advice. Makes getting my medications easy. Dr. Kaegi was there for me many years ago when I could not find another doctor to see me quickly and help me get on medication. I've come back again after some time off meds now, because I need treatment again and he's welcomed me back and made it easy to get the help I need.

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.

Dr. Kaegi is straightforward and friendly, an excellent Psychiatrist. My only issue is a long ride to his offices on public transit, but it may be easier from where you live!

Awful. Doesn’t seem to care one iota for the patient. Doesn’t care about the root cause of any mental issue, only about what he can prescribe to you and send you on your way. Unresponsive via email.

Dr. Kaegi is a really sweet guy and was pleasant the entire time during my visit. He was typing during my visit and while I was speaking but I did not feel rushed or that he was being rude. He was just charting my responses. Asked me a set of questions pertaining to my issue and we talked about any concerns I had. Definitely will return back to his office and recommend him to my friends.

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.

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.
