Three doctors die and go to heaven.
They are awaiting entry at the pearly gates, but first must answer a question from St. Peter. He asks each “What did you do in life?”
The first doctor answered that he was a wealthy ophthalmologist who left his practice to perform free cataract operations in India. “Come right in,” said St. Peter.
The second physician answered that he was an internist who left a lucrative practice to start an inner city clinic for the poor. Again St. Peter said, “Come right in.”
The third doctor said that he was a successful HMO director and really improved quality of care. “You’re welcome to come into heaven, too,” said St. Peter. “For 48 hours.”
