These other people must be referring to a different Dr. Kaegi. The one I saw was cold, rude, and totally unprofessional. He couldn't seem to get me out the door fast enough. I wouldn't wish him on my worst enemy if I had one.
racist doctor, classist doctor
Prompt, easy to communicate with and helpful. Highly recommended!
I feel very comfortable with Dr. Kaegi. He takes the time to listen to me and understands my struggles. I follow up with him every month and he has helped me.
He is the best??
Initial visit: right on time, thorough, attentive, very assuring and an all-around very positive. Grateful to have found him after my regular MD moved his practice. Started on a new med and have a follow-up in a month. Looking forward to it.
Dr. Kaegi treated me with respect, was professional, and has a sense of humor when appropriate. It was a fine experience.
Dr. Kaegi is the best psychiatrist I ever had since I was diagnosed 25 yrs ago. Through his treatmennts I have a better life. Thank you dr. Kaegi
Not too sure about doctor's interest in me, however, he did take me late and expressed willingness to treat me as an individual, not as a formula.
I loved the online appointment scheduling as well as access to forms and regulation. Office is neat and well organized. I was seen by the doctor right away. Dr . Kaegi seemed to be very caring, direct, and professional. Best care!
I never had a psychiatrist take such interest in my history and I was very impressed with how thorough Dr. Kaegi was and with how he addressed my concerns. I was happy with the results. Also that he listened to me with care allowing me to talk.
I absolutely love Dr. Kaegi ! He is so professional and always on time. I've never had an issue with him or his staff.
This appointment went very well. I was seen right away. He was very clear in explaining what my issues were and how to treat it.
Dr. Kaegi was very professional, helpful, and personable. It was easy to set up an appointment, and the wait time was minimal. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a psychiatrist.
I was satisfied with my visit. He listened carefully and I will visit again.
He is so professional. He immediately addressed my concerns and tried to solve them.I am so happy with his care and I am glad my friend recommended him to me.
He was thorough, convienient to book, and easy to talk to. I will definitely continue to see him.
THANK YOU DR. KAEGI AND I MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A THERAPIST AT PRESENCE BEHAVIOR OVER AT ST. FRANCIS. I'M VERY GOAL ORIENTATED THANKS TO MY OTHER PSYCHIATRIST THAT MENTIONED THREE AREAS THAT I NEEDED TO RESEARCH. AGAIN THANK YOU AND SEE YOU ON JUNE 25.
He had a great bedside manner and he was very knowledgeable about the medicines he prescribed i will recomened dr charles kaegi to any one in my family.thank you dr
He was rude and critical . I went to see him in a really diffacult time . And he is the the worst doctor I have ever meet. I would not recommend him to a Dog
Dr. Charles Kaegi is fantastic. Extremely patient and welcoming. I felt very comfortable sharing with Dr Kaegi.
He didn't talk much to me and didn't respond to my feedback.
Dr. Kaegi is always professional & wonderful to work with. He asks qualifying questions, addresses all my concerns and helps me manage my prescribed plan. Excellent doctor who is not quick to just write me a prescription and send me on my way. Amazing Dr.
Great visit as always, very little wait time, accurate care, quick rx fills, as always very easy visit. Thanks
It seemed in a way like I was talking to a machine. I'm very much a people person and enjoy surrounding myself with the same type people and didn't have a comfortable feeling with Dr Kaegi. I was not able to talk freely, only to answer his specific ?s
Dr. Kaegi gave off an air of judgment from the get-go. I was not impressed.
Do not waste your time with this provider.
Dr. Kaegi is great! I'm so glad to have him as my doctor, he's always willing to help me find answers with new medications. He cares about my health and happiness. Love the apps too.
I'm very happy with the service I have received from doctor Charles kaegi. Thank You.
Well it was my first visit. So far i can say it was good. He actually listened to me and was paying attention to my concerns.
Barely looked at me throughout the entire appt. Typed away, asked questions and didn't look at me at all. I was in major distress. Did not bother to examine my history thoroughly & ended up in the emergency room 10 days later due to improper medication.
Excellent doctor, he is straight to the point & actually cares about your overall health. Does not want to see you depending on medication for the rest of your life. Finally found a doctor who actually cares!
He was very nice and address my issues
My needs were addressed. Service was prompt.
No waiting for my appointment . in and out 15 mins. fast and thorough , just the way I like it .
From the moment I walked in felt very judged and was only in for one thing. To get in get out and he gets his money. The dr didn't even have my proper birth place written after being told such info. He doesn't listen and is very traditional and seems bias
Zero wait time. Listened to everything I had to say and then helped me with the situation. Perfect grade.
Very rude and willing to force patients into the medications that obviously he promotes/gets paid for prescribing, regardless if the patient has been taking a previously prescribed medication that has worked for them for years. Not going back.
Dr Kaegi is a great doctor! All visits have been great!
Excellent service from making my appointment to my visit with the doctor. My needs were all met and will continue my future care with them as well.
I am thankful that many other doctors change my opinion regarding snob, rude and unethical CEK.
My First visit with Dr. Kaegi is outstanding. I felt welcome in his office during my appointment. All I know is I found a Doctor that I can talk to and will listen to the patients concern. Great doctor. Looking forward for my next appointment.
Dr. Kaegi was very helpful in determining the right medication for my symptoms and even gave me the option of two different medicines, explaining the likely effects of each. We both agreed upon one and I've been productive, stable and happy ever since.
Straight and to the point. It's nice knowing that he won't keep you waiting very long.
Good first impression. Very professsional. Very direct. Very intelligent.
The MD listens very well.
He is willing to listen to differing opinions and also offer suggestions.
Best psychiatrist I've tried so far.
I have known Dr Kaegi for 20 some years and I trust him completely. I hope he never retires!
i have been a patient of Dr.Kaegi for over 15yrs. And we have come to know each others and respect each other thoughts and suggestions. i just wish he would follow-up with things that can only be authorized by him in a timely manner.
I really enjoy Dr. Kaegi. He is the only doctor I have had in that specialty that actually shows a great deal concern for the patient.
He was fantastic! Very thourough assessment, got straight to the point, and there was literally no wait time. Fantastic, would recommend to anybody.
I like Dr Kaegi he's a very caring Doctor
Very nice and helpful would def. recommend
Dr. Kaegi is very professional and on-point. His dedication towards ethics and his profession is very evident upon meeting with him. You can truly tell that he cares about his clients and always is on time. He is great!
Very pleasant and professional.
Extremely professional and helpful Doctor.
Love you dr kaegi! Your the best. Needed to take my daughter into the office I had no babysitter and he was so nice about it and made me feel comfortable and relaxed
Excellent experience all around with Dr Kaegi..Great choice
The visit was formulaic with the Doctors attention primarily on his computer. Provider was somewhat dismissive when symptoms were discussed - not really what I expected or had hoped for. Visit was a waste of time and I found another Doctor since.
To be succinct, this doctor is HORRIBLE. Don't waste your time.
The visit was a total, complete, waste of my time and money. He was not helpful to me at all. I would not recomend him to anyone needing treatment for depression, anxiety or other mental problems. I recieved better care from an "online Dr."
I had read the reviews on Dr. Kaegi before my appointment and wasn't sure what to expect. I was really nervous but I ended up having nothing to worry about. Dr. Kaegi was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable.
Dr. Kaegi is an excellent psychiatrist; his medical knowledge extends well past his specialty. He is also a friendly doctor, but he sorely needs a new Apple iMac on his desk in order simplify his busy life, and to project calmness to his office visitors.
very friendly and easy to talk to
Is very helpful and walks you through everything
He actually smiled for once. I like that i dont have to spend a lot of time in there cos i hate psychiatrists in general.
I'm completely satisfied.
Best doctor ever!
Dr. Kaegi is very perfesional, his appointments are always on time. He addresses the concerns and currently maintains my medication needs. Thank you.
As usual a wonderful visit!!! Understanding, caring,and patient.
He was efficient and focused, yet he spent over a half-hour with me on this initial visit, to gather information and discuss my symptoms and concerns. His follow-up was immediate with the prescription and detailed information about the medication.
I view Dr. Kaegi as a consultant for my needs. He responded to my "story", including writing a needed prescription. and offered a counseling referral. As in other reviews, he types notes as you talk. That did not bother me. It was what I needed.
Very brief and to the point. May be offsetting to some, but for us on the go I would recommend him.
Quick and to the point. The way I like it.
He listened to me and asked important questions. I was very comfortable.
I think the appointment went well.
Despite the wait time of about 10 or more minutes Dr. Kaegi is very polite and knows how to identify the patient's needs after looking at one's medical history.
Great MD who helps you and listens well!
Very thorough...I look forward to my next visit.
Dr. Kaegi is always friendly, informative, and knows what is best for me as his patient. He always answers any questions I have about medication and symptoms, which is very helpful.
I'm really happy for the great healthcare treatment I receive.. I also see that the Doctor really cares about his patients. Thank You.
I have always felt very comfortable with Dr. Kaegi. He has always shown concern and care that I receive the correct medication and dosage. He is also concerned with any side effects that I may be having.
Pleasant demeanor and straight to point questions
I found the doctor to be very easy to talk to.
Merry Xmas & happy new year Dr Kaegi ;-))
Very prompt and never a long wait. To the point and very helpful.
Wonderful experience and greatly appreciated. Dr. approach is quite the pleasure indeed!
Dr. Kaegi is a very attentive listener and addresses the human condition using an eclectic approach. He also wants to learn from your session so as to bring something new out of each session.
he was very helpful and kind.He was very clear about my concerns and left me with a ray of hope.I am happy.
Dr. Kaegi was on-time with the appointment. He answered my several questions calmly and with clarity. I appreciated how he was able to explain things in a way I could understand. I highly recommend him.
Been my Dr for over 15 years, I am still with him because of that, very nice Dr great friend!
I thought Dr. Kaegi went straight for my problems and was friendly. He was understanding and wasn't judgmental. I will definitely be going to see him for now on.
He's a wonderful doctor! I never need to search for another psychiatrist again!
Dr. Kaegi has a terrific online intake and appointment process. He was professional, thorough, efficient and provided me with exactly what I needed. I am very pleased with having been referred to him and look forward to working together toward my health.
It was good of Dr Kaegi to fit me in even after I was 30 mins late for my appointment.
Dr. Kaegi is thorough with his assessment & understanding of your situation. He appears to care about his patients. I would definitely recommend him.
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!
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.
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.
