Good Health is the first studio album by Pretty Girls Make Graves. Originally released in 2002 by Lookout Records, it was later re-released by Matador Records with an additional 4 songs made up of the band's first self-titled EP. This album is often mistakenly referred to as Is It Broken, Doctor? on some internet discussion boards and file-sharing services due to the inclusion of that phrase on the cover of the album, on which the actual title is not present.
