Dr. Kaegi might of been a great doctor in the past but no longer puts his patients. During our recent check-in (which I was proactive about scheduling because I wanted to remove one of the drugs I was currently on due to me doing better than I ever had for years due to an alternative solution. Not only did he forget that he was the one to prescribe the drug he had put me on last year but he also told me I was bipolar, which he never ever communicated to me. NEVER EVER GOING BACK TO HIM.

I would a 100%, but i feel he has tried to push medicine that does not apply, to me. I do Read The DSM-5th Edition plus Pharmacalogy.. SP?...other than that we are fine....
