I am thankful that many other doctors change my opinion regarding snob, rude and unethical CEK.
you have break the confidentiality and put me in the net and included my minor son in the experience, the truth is that is dishonest to and illegal to mess mwith minors
Felt very comfortable and it was a professional visit
I felt Dr. Kaegi efficiently addressed my issues
He listened to all my concerns and worked with me to find an answer and help
Professional and attentive
Dr Kaegi is very easy to work. He response to my questions and corcern immediately
Dr. Kaegi is an excellent psychiatrist. Calm, cool, and precise. An anxiety free office atmosphere, and attention to clinical detail.
Dr Kaegi was thorough on my initial event. My diagnosis gave me a perspective I had not considered before.
Very comfortable interacting and easy to talk. Would recommend!
Dr.Kaegi, is a most polite and helpful practitioner. We are grateful to have him as our Doctor. A very pleasant experience indeed!
Dr. Kaegi did not seem remotely interested in my needs. He asked me if I wanted one medication or another, and I asked his advice on what he thought I should take, and his response was "I have no personal investment in which medication you take".
No nonsense doctor kind helpful and professional
we feel very good and comfortable with this doctor he very much understand our family concern .
Great doctor, really listens to patient's history and concerns. Highly recommend him.
All he focused on was my 30yr. old inpatient treatment for drugs! Not my mental stability now. He is too self-centered!!!
Dr Kaegi has an office that is easy to get to if traveling from the highway. He's a good listener and thoughtful in his responses. A nice doctor who will pay attention to your needs. He took the time subscribe a medication that was right for me.
As always, a Perfect visit! THANKS!!!
This doctor was very unpleasant to speak with. He showed a cold demeanor, was condescending, & showed no sympathy towards my disorder, nor to the tears he had me in. He refused to continue successful treatment I've been on 18 yrs. Wasted $150.
He is a good person and a great doctor.
Dr Kaegi was thorough with his questions and seemed sincere.
I was very pleased
Arrived 40 minutes early. Got in to see him right at scheduled appointment time.
Dr. Kaegi made me feel very comfortable (as it was my first time seeing him) and understanding. I've never felt so comfortable at a doctors office
Quick and to the point. Good with follow ups.
I am suffering from panic disorder and severe anxiety attacks dr would give me no medication to address that because of an incident i had in 1998- I was 5 minutes late and he made me wait 40 - I am still suffering and he was no help
Dr. Kaegi was highly professional and efficient in understanding my situation. He provided a lot of choices and communicated openly about his clinical perspective. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a psychiatrist.
Dr.Kaegi is always on top oh his game!
Very thorough assessment of my needs and answered all of my numerous questions; came away with a clear treatment plan that I have confidence in
I was VERY impressed with Dr Kaegi. He listened to everything I said and addressed all my concerns. He understood my problems and discussed what he felt would work best. I will definitely be seeing Dr Kaegi in the future would recommend him to anyone
I really don't understand the bad reviews for this doctor. He was very thorough and professional and took time to understand my long history and issues. He was patient and went through my options with me and made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Kaegi is always professional, kind, and very rarely keeps his patients waiting. I am impressed by his knowledge and his efficiency. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Kaegi. He has been very thorough in addressing various pros and cons of treatments.
Dr Kaegi is great. Many years I've dealt with depression, mind racing, can't focus. It was affecting my daily life. I had YEARS of counseling. No one help me, I suffered in silence. My first visit with Dr Kaegi, all my concerns where addressed. I'm happy.
Such a great understanding doctor. He always is nice and makes me feel confortable and genuinly wants to help.
I got stuck in traffic and showed up 20 minutes late and Dr. Kaegi waited for me even though it was already a late appointment and I was his last visit of the day.
He asked me questions and then cut me off multiple times. He did not address my need for wanting to come off the medication and instead thought it best I just stay put on my dosage. His office is like a corporate lawyer's office. Very uncomfortable.
Dr. Kaegi was very efficient, but also quite detached. He was running about half an hour late so this could explain the hurried manner. He asked the right questions for my meds and got me refills, but if you're new to psychiatry he might be intimidating.
Dr. Kaegi is excellent! I had huge problems focusing. After seeing him he recommended a drug which did help me focus but had some side effects. On my next appointment he prescribed a different drug. My life is amazingly different now!
Dr. Kaegi has been extremely helpful and competent, monitoring my blood pressure, weight, and overall well-being. He is attentive, provides information regarding prescriptions and therapists, and provides useful suggestions. I'm glad I found him.
I think he is excellent. The only hesitation I have is that he does not seem to be familiar with the newest medications.
I have made significant progress under Dr. Kaegi's care.
Simply does what should be expected from a doctor honest, helpful and informational.
Dr. Kaegi is fairly quiet. He is more than willing to talk in-depth about an issue, but you might have to ask questions to get more information. My other doctors are very impressed by the extensive notes he sends them following our appointments.
Yes it was a great experience meeting Dr Kaegi for the 1st time and will surely recommend him to family and friends.
I have reviewed Dr. Kaegi before but wanted to ring in again with an endorsement. He continues to provide thoughtful, humane, high-quality care and I am grateful to be a client.
Charles was great! He saw my wife in a timely manner and was very consultative.
Dr. Kaegi had kept good notes on my last meeting with him, which was some time ago. As a result, he was able to address my problem and help work to solve it. He made me very comfortable, and offered to see me again if I should need his services.
Dr. Kaegi is a wonderful and caring doctor who addresses all medical concerns and finds the best possible solutions to them. I would highly recommend him to all.
Dr. Kaegi always addressed your concerns in a professional and compassionate manner.
Dr.Charles is a very good doctor. He made me feel comfortable , was my first time ever at a psychiatrist so I was afraid of being judged. He is very professional, knowledgeable and direct. I was anxious about the visit but everything went well.
I was impressed that a plan was put into place to address my concerns.
Being a credentialed professional myself apropos to ADD issues, I was sorely disappointed to note the incompetentency and ignorance this doctor has apropos to treating A DHD.
I already recommended him to my husband. He is efficient and the ability to schedule my appointments online is a real plus.
Honestly a personal redemption for medical practitioners. If all doctors possessed the same demeanor as Dr Kaegi then I'd be much less reluctant to seek out their services.
Dr. Kaegi exhibits all the signs a good psychiatrist should. He takes a genuine interest in his patients, their health & well being. In addition, he is kind and makes you feel welcome. I'd highly recommend him to anyone
Dr Kaegi is a no nonsense type of doctor. He is not personalable but you learn that he does care. He may seem distant but I think that's his personality and that's how he separates work. I do believe he cares, he just doesn't show it.
Gets right to the heart of the problem. Good listener and I would recommend him.
This doctor was very rude and would not explain basic questions that I had regarding the orders he was prescribing to me, stating he didn't have time and further questioned my need to know. I found him condescending and unconcerned. FILL'EM and BILL'EM
Very great doctor, very understanding and good listener, I tell all my friends and family about him and send them to him.
Dr. Kaegi has help me fullfill and coupe with my illness.
Good doctor just types a lot in his computer while talking to him
My appointment with Dr. Kaegi was, as usual, very productive and helpful. He listened to what I had to say, my needs were heard, and we worked together to come to a mutually agreeable plan.
Dr. Kaegi was professional, prompt and a good listener.
I really like Dr.Kaegi. Great psychiatry.
I have an acquaintance who is a social worker. I told her about Dr. Kaegi. She now refers her clients to him. I've referred others, too.
No wait time. Asked important questions. Made and adjusted suggestions based on my previous experiences and concerns. Upfront, honest, and candid about next steps and expectations.
Felt comfortable talking with him
Dr. Kaegi was pleasant and professional. He discussed various treatment options in detail and was Extremely well informed on all issues we discussed. I would highly recommend him.
I have been looking for a provider of psych services since I arrived in Chicago several months ago. Many doctors were not taking new patients or offering appointments several months out. Dr Kaegi was easy to get into see and was very professional
I shared some recent tragedy that I had experienced and Dr was very very reserved and did not offer so much as an "I am sorry for your loss" or "Im sorry to hear that happened." I left feeling a little less satisfied than usual with the appointment.
Dr.Kaegi is very easy too talk too and he seems to answer all the questions I have.
I was impressed with how completely everything was covered, and look forward to a good working relationship.
Asked good questions of me before answering my questions. Listened to my answers, sometimes asked a few MORE questions to clarify.
i appreciate his concern and caring ways and will always need his help!
Very nice doctor
Dr.Kaegi is person of excellence and example.
Dr. Charles Kaegi was just the right person to see with my condition. He recognized immediately what my symptoms were and knew how to help me with it. I have seen improvement since day one of leaving his office and I am eternally grateful.
He was very quick and very good
Be weary of negative reviews. I went with Dr. Kaegi because of the good reviews I read and he exceeded my expectations. The thoroughness of his visit was really comforting. I'm in the right hands! Be on time, he is busy and extremely professional.
Very professional and straightforward. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
Very straight to the point and clear and concise
He was very open for discussion about my current situation, he asked many important questions. I feel we got alot done for my first appointment. He was helpful, I will be going back to see him.
Very good listener and notetaker. Also, Kaegi is really helpful when it comes to prescribing medication. I would definately recommend this doctor to others.
I was very impressed with Dr. Kaegi, he made me feel comfortable with something that is difficult to discuss and was very thorough in his interview. He was very polite and open and willing to listen to everything I had to say.
I felt well informed and satisfied with my visit.
Professional, courteous, I felt relaxed in an uncomfortable situation.
Excellent as always! THANKS!
He put me into panic instead of helping me.
Very objective and client oriented.
My needs we well addressed.
The Kaegi Is a Phenomenal Doctor and I was very please with the service I received. I would most definitely recommend him to someone looking for mental health treatment.
He really seemed to know his stuff and got right to the heart of the matter.
Positive Experience. No wait
He uses his time with me efficiently, though I do feel a little pressed to hurry up and say everthing that needs to be said quickly and I am afraid that I might forget something.
He is straight forward and to the point and understanding of complications with medication or one's desire for different care.
As a first time patient, Dr. Kaegi was incredibly easy to speak with and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Kaegi is very thorough and takes a genuine interest to provide the best possible prognosis. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kaegi.
Doctor Kaegi seems to be pretty knowledgable in his field of psychiatry when it comes down to human behavior and medical treatment for the illness and he listens to the patient concerns about medications and the effects and let one make choices also.
Very nice and straight forward. Addressed my issues accordingly and made me feel welcomed.
Dr.Kaegi is always nice and listens to what I have to say. most times I only wait about 5min but the last time I was there the waiting room was full and I can not handle being in a room full of people so I stood in the hall way and I think I missed my spo
he is very good doctor.
Dr Kaegi is an excellent psychiatrist and a considerate human being. However, he obviously needs technological assistance with office equipment, computers, web. If he won't take my free advice, might he consider paying me for it? Would that be ethical?
Charles is great.. Gets straight to the point, no beating around the bush. I will definitely go to him from now onwards.
Dr. Kaegi is a knowledgeable andcaring doctor. I just hope they come out with a new sleeping pillthat works for me. So far, the previous sleeping pills weren't very effective. I am sure as soon as an option is available, DR. Kaegi will help me with this!
Appointment was great as usual. He has excellent deskside manner.
Very professional and courteous. I would highly recommend doctor Kaegi to anyone who is tired of going at it alone.
I scheduled online, provided all insurance information, & even had my records faxed over immediately. Dr. did not review my records at all & ended up just refilling my old prescriptions. I prepared him prior to ensure a productive visit, & it was a waste.
I was able too have my problems addressed with dr.kaegi
Dr. Kaegi was efficient and understanding. I felt I was able to communicate clearly, and did not have to worry about hand-holding or judgmental reactions. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kaegi was not what I expected. I felt very comfortable with him and trust his knowledge, information and recommendations. I look forward to seeing him again. Love the access to my medical records through a secure site.
Dr. Kaegi was very understanding and very informative. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Kaegi. He is much better then the doctors I have seen in the past.
He was great! No nonsense. Nice and understanding. I'll be back soon!
Dr. K did NOT address anything with me. He simply just saw me, told me he doesn't know whats wrong, and then charged me an additional $150.00 just for being seen. This is the WORST place I have ever been to. all he did was see me for 10 mins. HORRIBLE!
Dr. Kaegi is excellent: professional, objective, honest, informed, organized, articulate, intelligent, & he cares about patients; I would rate him 10/10.
CKaegi needs to be reported to the ethical board for review of his professional manners, ethical behavior in communicating with a minor in telephone conversation, he displace all his anger as he spoke in the phone with my minor son calling him a bad name offensive", he told my son that our dog that was barking at the moment of the call is that Cecilia Cole , my son told him that he was disrespectful, kaegi told my minor son that doesn't take the useless insurance public aid(he does he has before). Kaegi did me wrong before abandon me, taking out my meds without care, never refer me to anyone I was very ill at the ER due to his lack of professionalism. Today, I tried to retry him again given him a second chance and that prompt his phone call to my home while my appmt was already accepted in his system. he kick me out from the office look ing very aggressive scared me. Then proceed to call my home spoke to my minor son call him names, call me a b, my son a p, yelling out of control, and saying that that useless public aid insurance was not good enough for him. Finally, he disclose private information to my minor son, information that was out of my son knowledge. I am a qualified mental health professional and I am sure Kaegi needs to revisited what he did today, He will face consequences to the displace anger and fear he impose in my child, and even more he needs therapy himself, he is no good to help anyone if he can control his own behavior. Please, don't ever make an appointment with this man, he is extremely narcissistic, he discriminate the social class. Bad doctor.
I don't recommend him to anyone, I am myself a master level mental health professional, and he did me wrong, misdiagnosed me, mess up my medications, very rude he abandon me and never look back to apologize or give an opportunity to find another doctor. Thanks to my common sense i was able to manage any crisis, and but still dealing with the mess up in my meds and already great advances I had accomplish in my own health. His negligence set me back. I am sure he needs to read more about the many ways medications work and when is the appropriate time to stop or switch them.
My overall experience with this doctor has been truly frustration. I won't recommend him to anyone, I don't want them to fell the way I am, he doesn't listen the patients opinion, and has a weak ego. Professionally, he is capable to close a case mostly unilaterally, leaving you with no time to find another doctor to take care of the patient needs. He is very inflexible, and uncaring, he needs to see the pain of the patient to give and to take apologies.
I never felt understood by this professional, he speak little, spend the less time possible with me, his goals are what matter in the treatment, I had medications prescribe by a previous doctor and they worked for me, and Kaegi change them leaving me with nothing that help with my symptoms in this area of my suffering. I am dissapointed by the way he took over and disregard my needs in treatment. I am obligued to find a kind,simphatico, respectful and culturally inform doctor. There is more I will like to say but is too late and I won't go back to him, he didn't respect my credentials and my professionalism in knowing my own persona and what was good for me in terms of meds and time.
Dr. Kaegi was the first psychiatrist I saw. He made it easy to talk to him. He always seemed like you were his only patient and what you were going through really mattered to him. He is very intelligent which may make him seem hard for some to get used
