A 15 year-old patient comes to see you for routine care. You have been this patient’s PMD since she was 5 years old. You note a change in her appearance since her most recent urgent care visit 1 month ago. She has new hair extensions and a designer bag. You know her family does not have the means to support these luxuries.
You are concerned that she is being groomed for sex trafficking.
- She has markedly changed her appearance.
- These changes are beyond what her family can afford.
