Check Up Reality Check
Michael and his family made the exciting decision to make aliyah to Israel. Michael had had a few health problems in the past, so as soon as he settled down in his job he looked for a new family doctor. Being that he had a very comprehensive health history, he thought it would be wise to bring along all of his medical paperwork for his first check up with his new doctor.
After browsing through the extensive medical history, Doctor Chafetz stared at Michael for a few moments and said, "Well there's good news and bad news. The bad news is, your medical history isn't very promising. The good news is that you look better in person than you do on paper.”
