This article presents an abstract of the article "Obtaining a history of sexual victimization from adolescent females seeking routine health care," by A. Diaz, S. Edwards, W.P. Neal et al published in a 2004 issue of "The Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine." The aim of the study was to document one physician's clinical practice of direct inquiry about sexual victimization of adolescent females who presented for a routine medical examination in a primary setting. If during the interview the patient revealed a history of sexual victimization, the physician elicited further information. Nearly all patients who made such disclosure accepted referrals for counseling.
