I don't want to appear to be nitpicking, but sometimes the decisions that are made by health care people are indicative of underlying problems--or just obliviousness.  Here, for example, I find it hard to understand why the doctors who work in this multi-specialty clinic--which includes orthopaedics and urgent care--should have reserved parking places that are closest to the entrance of the building.

Even if this non-patient-centric result doesn't bother you, consider the fact that only the doctors, among all the clinicians and ancillary health care professionals, get this privileged treatment.  Is the time of doctors more valuable than that of the nurses, the NPs, the PAs, and the techs?

I know, it's just a matter of a short distance to the other parking places in the lot, so it's not a big deal.  But why set up artificial class distinctions?  It would also not be a big deal for the MDs to walk that extra distance.
