Wait but is that a 'surgery' in a hospital?, a doctors 'surgery'? or a 
veterinary 'surgery'?

doctors-surgery*, would probably be better if your going down that 
route. 'doctors' is not common (since when did OSM care about class?), 
but its not right either IMO. not descriptive enough.

*also add veterinary-surgery, I work in these places so I can make a list.

ps. maybe 'practice' would be better (doctors-practice, 
veterinary-practice)? if so then its probably worth adding dental 
practice, and all the other medical practices (chiropractic, chiropodist 
etc). I see hundreds of these places on my rounds (and work in some of 
them too), so I have tons to list. Have a stack of vets in google earth KML.
