More Information

Dr. Alejandra Garland Becerra is a fellowship-trained UCI Health neurologist who specializes in the care and treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease, atypical Parkinsonism, dystonia, tremor, Huntington’s disease, tics and other movement disorders.

She offers physical and advanced diagnostic procedures and a range of treatment options, including pharmacological therapies, botulinum toxin injections and lifestyle modifications.

Garland Becerra earned her medical degree at the University of San Martín de Porres in Lima, Peru, followed by an internal medicine internship at Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York City, and a neurology residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Before her internship year, she participated in dementia research at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine in New York City, where she studied the influence of ethnicity and race in an aging community of the Bronx.

During fellowship training in movement disorders at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Garland Becerra participated in multiple research studies, including clinical trials for Parkinson’s disease and atypical Parkinsonism, as well as studies to detect early symptoms of these diseases and to evaluate the role of metabolic abnormalities in their pathophysiology, disease severity and treatment. She is also interested in the management of non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, particularly sleep and dementia, which are major comorbidities.

Garland Becerra sees patients in Irvine, Newport Beach and Tustin. She is fluent in English and Spanish.
