After successful operating a Chiropractic clinic in Glendale, CA. Dr Garo Bouldoukian decided to go back to school to earn his medical degree. The medical school he attended was in the Dominican Republic. Dr. Garo was an avid cigar smoker, and it did not take long for him to find his way into a factory. The same passion Dr. Garo had for his practice went into the manufacturing of cigars.
