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.

Ive been seeing Dr. Kaegi for a few months now, and hes never been the warmest person but it was fine until our last appointment when my questions about a medication he was recommending was met with a sarcastic answer about my depression. I wont be seeing him again.

I was disappointed to learn that Dr. Kaegi does not understand my need to have my animals classified as service animals. Because I am bipolar, I have difficulty maintaining a schedule. I can sleep for days and stay up for days. With the responsibility of my very insistent cats, I always have to get up, feed them, and, most importantly, look forward to coming home. I don't think I could handle life without them!

I was initially taken aback when he didn't shake my hand when we first met. I thought I was the only one that isn't thrilled with Dr. Kaegi's demeanor. I feel like I'm just a lab rat in his office. He seems to only cares about data points, not the person. I'm considering finding another doctor.

Not satisfied with my care with Dr. Kaegi. He's lacking adequate bedside manners, pushes medications even with my concerns, doesn't make eye contact. He simply asks questions listed on his computer and types he entire time. I don't feel supported in wanting to wean off my Rx and feel he is just doing the bare minimum to get me in and out for the copay.

Very professional. Covered under my insurance. Did a full assessment of multiple systems - in addition to psychiatric concerns, reviewed medical history, took baseline vitals. Discovered vital sign which was abnormal. Alerted me to a potential family issue which may need addressing by general practitioner based upon examination. Prescribed conservatively and explained pros and cons of various different medications and medication types. Reviewed my prior medications to ensure no contraindications. My examination by Dr. Kaegi was as thorough, if not more thorough, as I expected from a psychiatrist and M.D. Demonstrated knowledge of various different conditions and effects of medications on specific conditions. Little to no wait. Very respectful and honest. Overall very professional and seemed to genuinely be concerned with my overall well-being, not just the specific chief complaint which brought me into the office. Not interested in pushing medications or doing anything which may adversely affect my overall health or mental health. Good experience.

This was a different type of doctors office to me than what I am used to, but Dr. Kaegi was very helpful. He is straight forward and professional. The office is small and in kind of an older building, but his office decorations were interesting enough to hold my attention while waiting.

Always a pleasant experience. He's open to dialogue with the patient to find what treatment works best. Also, he and his staff are very flexible and accommodating for those times when life throws you a split seam slider across the outside corner of the plate, with a 2-2 count; runners on first and third.

He is very businesslike and no nonsense. Dont expect a friendly or sympathetic bedside manner. He wants the facts from you and he will give you the medication that you need. Dont take up too much time, he will get mad. This is an assembly line. He's a decent doctor but dont expect too much.

Dr Kaegi is an exceptional doctor. He has been my doctor since December, 2017.. He is beyond caring, considerate, compromising and highly intelligent, just to name a few. I am beyond grateful to have him as my doctor.

I have never received treatment from someone so condescending before. He makes it pretty apparent that he does not have patience for his clients and their issues. He is direct however his tone is judgmental and insulting. It is a private practice so he makes it apparent that you are "running on his time." He lacks passion when it comes to being sensitive to his clients. He has an arrogant attitude when approaching his client. He lacks attempt to having desire when helping those in needs of extra mental health support. HIGHLY not recommended.

Great doctor with a no nonsense attitude. I told him why I was there, he asked me some relative questions, and I was on my way with what I needed. It was neither pleasant, nor was it at all unpleasant. If you're looking to have a chat, I'd recommend another doctor, but I found him perfectly adequate for my needs.

I was very reluctant to see a psychiatrist for the longest time. I took a chance based on his reviews and am very glad I did! Dr. Kraege was very calm and professional. I felt like I was heard and my concerns were taken seriously. He efficiently came to a diagnosis, made a plan TOGETHER, and answered all my questions.

I gave him good ratings when I rated him earlier (I don't rate every time I go), but I've become increasingly disenchanted with him. He's great on scheduling as he uses Zoc Doc and never keeps you waiting and always stays on time. What has been bothering me more and more is that his demeanor, while very professional, seems less curious and not very pro-active. I've been on the same med regimen for several years and have been becoming more systematic for over the last 6-7 months. I'm a very compliant, track my condition and eager for help, yet he types what I say in the computer and prints out the same prescriptions each time I see him, usually while I'm speaking. Even my therapist has become concerned and I've asked to try anything that might help as I know meds can become less effective over time, He asked me to make suggestions for meds to try! In my opinion, he is a great doctor for someone who is at the early stages of their mental health journey, being diagnosed and determining a drug regimen, if necessary. He might also be good for those who do not care for a psychiatrist who gets overly-involved, doing a semi-therapy while they are in-office, He is definitely unflappable and no drama. After months of thought, I believe I'm going to start looking for another doctor, despite hating to do it. This is only my fourth in 20 years and only the second I've left because of feeling my needs were not met. He may meet yours, though.
