To go with the flow wouldn't be tragic. Thousands of German mappers
have to tolerate the fact that we don't use highway=autobahn. But in
this instance, we have something like 26% doctor, so there seems to be
a need to retag anyway. Doing so in a way that makes it easier for
mappers to remember the schema will help.

For me, "dentist" makes sense. So does "doctor". So does "surgery" or
"medical_practice", if we want to acknowledge that there may be more
than one medical professional on site. But "doctors" seems to be a
poor fit.
