I remember the family doctor coming to visit me when I was a preschooler with tonsillitis.
American photojournalist W. Eugene Smith spent 23 days in Kremmling, Colo., chronicling the day-to-day challenges faced by an indefatigable general practitioner named Dr. Ernest Ceriani.

Dr. Ceriani was the sole physician for an area of about 400 square miles...
|Dr. Ceriani has stitched the girl's wound to minimize scarring, |
but he must now find a way to tell the parents that her eye cannot be saved
and they must take her a specialist in Denver to have it removed.
