While I love the enthusiasm here, I am 100% with Marc on this, and not in favor of adding this type.

In my opinion, a MedicalSpa is nothing more than a ‘DaySpa’ with a Physician who may or may not work PT/FT there.  IMO, there is a facade of regulation of these ‘MedicalSpa’ entities. Just because they observe HIPAA and OSHA does not make them comparable to a doctor’s office, clinic, or surgery center.  Many have no malpractice coverage. Credentialing is all over the place. IMO, it’s more of a marketing term, and is confusing to the public.

I think we have way bigger fish to fry.  I like Marc’s emphasis on moving our emphasis to disambiguating between the Physician office and the Physician person.
The Physician person is where the data lineage starts with MedicalSpecialty, as opposed to the organization, or office.  And we need to consider that it is generally the Physician person who is getting patient reviews across the web. The data model should provide for that too.
