Three doctors die and go to heaven. At the Gate they are met by
Saint Peter. He asks the first doctor what he did, why he deserves
to get into heaven. The first doctor replies.
"I was an obstetrician in private practice all my life. I helped hundreds of women through their pregnancies and delivered hundreds of babies".
Saint Peter says, "Great," and admits the first doctor into heaven.
He then asks the second doctor why he should be admitted into heaven.
"I was a pediatrician in private practice. All the babies the doctor before me delivered, I cared for until they were adults."
Saint Peter agrees that this doctor too should be admitted. He then
questions the third doctor who responds.
"I was in private practice briefly, then went into management. As a matter of fact, I'm the doctor who invented the HMO."
Saint Peter says, "Gee, I've never heard of that. Let me check with the head office."
Saint Peter goes off returning after a few minutes. He says to the third doctor, "You too can come in, but you can only stay three days."
