My meeting with Dr. Kaegi was quick, pleasant, and to-the-point. He was able to see me within 15 minutes of arriving, and upon entering, was willing to listen to my symptoms and provide a good treatment plan. The only downside is his office lobby, which was dated and depressing.

Very professional and to the point, if a little intimidating sometimes. Nice waiting room and good availability. Certainly the strictest with prescriptions I've ever had - won't call in prescriptions over the phone when needed, which can be stressful when you can't get an appointment on time. Getting there is easy (about 20 minutes from the city) with easily available parking.

I have been going to Dr. Kaegi for about a year now since my brothers passing. He has been great and listens to what is going on in my life. He has always been polite and friendly and asks my opinion on what medication I am taking. Really enjoy him and he has been a life saver for me.

My visit with Dr. Kaegi was wonderful. This was my second visit and he was very happy that things are going well for me.We discussed the treatment that I am going through and we are going to continue that treatment since it is working. We agreed that a 3 month follow-up is in order and I left feeling that I was well taken care of. I like his friendly quiet demeanor.

The office feels like a last resort for desperate people on Medicaid, and Dr. K seems like a man who's dealt with the down and out so frequently he may be a bit jaded, but he took my insurance, helped me with what I needed and cracked a few smiles, so I'm satisfied.

If you are a female with PTSD and/or an eating disorder---DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR. I was more triggered with this man than I have been with any doctor (and I've been in treatment for 8 years!). After telling him that I had an NOS eating disorder he preceded to ask my weight very coldly. When I said a range of weights because I don't weigh myself due to the disorder he coldly forced me to choose just one number. I felt extremely vulnerable and like if I didn't sit and be obedient he would not give me medication refills. I was afraid to write a review for a long time because of how sick it made me feel. I felt I had to in order to protect other people from having the same experience.

I have never been more humiliated in my life. This Dr was not only unprofessional but he made me feel as if he really dislikes Hispanics. My sister and I were the only ones that were not American there and when he first came out of his office (mind you he doesn't even have a receptionist) he looked at my sister and I as if we were aliens. He then proceeded to take all of his American patients and left us for last. Once it was my turn he literally walked out of the office with a patient and told me he will return shortly and that is after sitting there for two hours. He than returned about 15-20 minutes later and finally asked me to come into his office. After asking me questions about for another 1 hour he stated that he could not see me since I am a addict. I know that I have been prescribed many medications due to my Fibromyalgia and herniated disk on my back but I don't take the medication and I told him that I will be willing to take a drug test so that he can see I was not lying...he said he didn't want to "waste" his time with me. Worst visit EVER!

Dr. Kaegi had a horrible bedside manner and was very cold and uncaring. I'm extremely disappointed and confused because I was misled by all the other reviews of him on Zocdoc. Do not go to him if you're looking for a psychiatrist that will actually listen to your concerns. Definitely not someone that you want to be vulnerable around.
