I had been nervous to see a new psychiatrist to adjust my medications for many reasons, one being is the belief of many that the disorder can be cured with a jog around the block and we’re all drug-seeking. Dr. Kaegiwas very helpful, listened to my history and the current issues are, and offered up several ideas we could try out in the coming months. I sincerely appreciate Dr. Kaegi, and I even got him to chuckle at one or two of my jokes (I think I’m a comedian). Thank you!

I had past bad experiences with other doctors, until I found dr Kaegi. He is very calm and that gives me a sense of tranquility. He heard my symptoms asked me a variety of questions to get to my diagnosis andwas very attentive to my needs and gave me advice on medications. My overall health is better after a few visits in the last 6 months and I am sad now that I am moving to a different state and I will have to look for a different doctor.

I wanted to add, for those who find Dr. Kaegi to be short or disinterested, know that's not the case, but that he is quiet, and doesn't attempt to give you unsolicited advice. He is empathetic, will listen to you aboutissues whether they be directly related to his specialty, and remember and ask you about them when he sees you again. He will not probe you for your life story, but is extreemly attentive to anything you make him aware of. He is demurein his demeanor, but always extreemly clear and comprehensive when he is concerned, and perhaps that is not for everyone, but it is certainly what I look for in a doctor.

I didn’t get the vibe that he actually cares. He made me feel hopeless and didn’t know what to do with me and that’s what my previous dr, for most of my life made me feel as well. But I finallyfound a new dr. — Dr. Ronald Rempfer from Uptown Psych and now I have hope!

It was my first appointment. Dr Kaegi was pleasant and calm. My understanding is that he is a psychiatrist and not a therapist. So, I was answering his questions without any irrelevant stuff and trying not to interrupt him. I would recommend.

There is no receptionist in waiting area. Just two doors for two different doctors, so no worries if you are waiting alone. It was nice, clean , and comfortable. He has a gentle energy and I didn’t feel judged or rushedfor time. Glad I decided to switch my Dr for him!

I went to Dr. Kaegi for a med management consult since I got a job and my old psych didn't take my insurance. Dr. Kaegi has no bedside manner whatsoever. He was on his computer the entire time and was veryjudgmental of the meds I took. This was the worst experience I've ever had with a psychiatrist.
