When Emily was five years old, her family moved 40 minutes away from their hometown and the office of Dr. Allen Ausford, their family physician. Shortly after the move, Emily started having chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs), so her mother opted to take her to a nearby walk-in clinic, where, each time, the physician on staff would order a urinalysis and urine culture. Emily’s urinalysis results always came back showing the presence of white blood cells, indicating an infection, and it prompted the prescription of repeated courses of antibiotics. After Emily’s third visit to the walk-in clinic, the physician on staff advised Emily’s mother to take her to see Dr. Ausford.
