Biography

Dr. Aga was born and raised in India, and received his training in psychiatry in India and the US. Since completing his fellowship in geriatric psychiatry in 2003, he has worked almost exclusively with older adults in inpatient and outpatient settings in the public as well as the private sector. He directed the Geriatric Neuropsychiatry inpatient unit at the Oregon State Hospital for nearly seven years. Prior to moving to OHSU in July 2015, he was the Medical Director at the Tuality Center for Geriatric Psychiatry, where he provided both in-patient and out-patient care.

Dr. Aga finds it especially rewarding to work with dementia patients and their families who have complex medical and psychiatric problems. He has extensive experience in managing the behavioral and psychological symptoms of the various dementias, including, but not limited to, Alzheimer’s disease, the frontotemporal dementias, the Parkinson spectrum disorders and vascular cognitive impairment, using a combination of psychopharmacological and psychosocial interventions.

Dr. Aga is a fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. He is bilingual and is fluent in English and Hindi. In his free time, he enjoys travelling and spending time with his wife and twin daughters.
