About Amir Besharat

Dr. Besharat (pronounced “Besh-uh-rot") has a comprehensive, holistic approach to care that is grounded on patient empowerment. Early in his career, he received a Bachelor’s in Physiology with an emphasis on Nutrition and Exercise. He went on to complete a 4-year Residency in Neurology and 2-year Fellowship in Movement Disorders. This combination of training led to a practice style that takes lifestyle modifications- specifically nutrition, sleep and exercise- and integrates them with effective pharmacology and procedures that best align with his patients' personal goals. Above all, he believes that kind and compassionate communication is the pinnacle of the doctor-patient relationship.
