About me

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.

Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
