Wanted: Volunteers to Assist in Alzheimer’s Research!  Dr. Angelo Sambunaris

Apr 30, 2014


Like many doctors, Angelo Sambunaris made his way through med school courtesy of the US Government.  After a tour as a US Army Combat Medic, Dr. Sambunaris attended the University of Colorado in Colorado Spring, earning a degree in Biology.  He went on to med school at the Colorado Scho

ol of Medicine in Denver.  He wanted to be more than a clinician, so he started working in clinical research.  At the National Institute of Mental Health, he worked in the area of schizophrenia research.  He went on to work with several pharmaceutical companies, also doing research.  As his career 

began to take off, Dr. Sambunaris found himself spending more time behind a desk, or in meetings than he preferred, and he missed working directly with patients.  

With t

hat in mind, Dr. Sambunaris founded The Atlanta Institute of Medicine and Research.  Today, he remains the Medical Director and Principa

l Investigator for a company that works to test new treatments for a variety of cognitive disorders.  In this capacity, Dr. Sambunaris sees every patient that walks through the door of his office. When asked about his biggest challenge in his practice, he emphatically stated, "We need more volunteers!"

Qualified candidates receive a physical, an assessment, treatments and medication for no cost!  To find out if you or your loved one qualifies, call Dr. Sambunaris at (770) 817-9200, or visit the website at
