I would highly recommend Dr. Kaegi. Making appointments is easy, he's extremely accommodating with billing, he has several different ways to pay your bill, including Venmo and Chase Quick Pay. My first visit with him was my first psychiatrist visit ever and he made me feel comfortable and at ease. My insurance required prior approval for the medication he prescribed me and he acted very fast with that. He is quiet and doesn't volunteer a lot of information, but he will thoroughly explain anything if you ask.

The Dr was almost 20 minutes late. Yet I've read reviews about him not seeing patients because they were 15 minutes late. My visit was a disappointment - it was like he didn't believe what I was telling him I needed help for.

I was torn between seeing a younger or older doctor. A doctor who’s been in the field for many years, as Dr. Kaegi has, could go one of two ways: lots of experience leads to an impressive and in-depth understanding of patient needs -OR- they’ve been at it so long that all patients are the same to them. I feel Dr. Kaegi was the latter. On top of not looking at me at all, instead focusing on his computer screen, the only conversation was him asking template medical history questions. When he did finally ask me about why I’m there, my sentences were cut off and finished for me, and simplified. He’s been a doctor so long he no longer cares that patients are individuals with individual needs. To him we’re all the same and he’s heard what we have to say a million times already. As soon as I said “anxiety”, he cut me a script and sent me on my way. My depression was completely ignored, and I got nothing for it, though I voiced that treating depression is a higher concern for me over anxiety. If you want an impersonal doctor for easy prescriptions, Dr. Kaegi is your guy. I never even filled the prescription he gave me because if he doesn’t understand my needs, then those meds more than likely wrong for me. If you want an in-depth and personal approach to your unique needs so you know you’re getting the treatment that’s right for you, look elsewhere.

Dr. Kaegi is great! He has helped me a ton since I began seeing him a couple of months ago. He is not a therapist/psychologist, and therefore, is going to be more efficient regarding diagnostic interviewing. That is to be expected when making an appointment with a psychIATRIST (it seems like some people confuse psychotherapy and psychiatry). He does, however, truly listen and is very attentive regarding your symptoms. Life has been much better since I began seeing him!

A very strict doctor in terms of scheduling. I arrived a few minutes late and he already accepted someone else but very helpful and professional overall.

Terrible bed side manner. Wanted to discuss how I felt lately because I thought the medication I was taking made some of me negative feelings worse. Advised me to stop my medication cold turkey instead of tapering me off. Terrible advice. Now I’m going through withdrawals and feel awful. Seems like a guy who doesn’t care about his patients and just cares about money. Won’t be going back.

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.

I feel well-cared for by Dr Kaegi. He has my best interests in mind. He is efficient, and some people take this as a cold demeanor. But he is not a therapist, he is an MD. I plan on continuing to see him as long as I need to.

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.
