Unlike most doctors’ examining rooms, this one was neither sterile white nor institutional green. But despite the cheery wallpaper and the bright furniture, there was no concealing the fact of what it was. All examining rooms smell the same, Brittany thought, with that peculiarly sharp combination of disinfectant and air freshener.
“And I know it even though I can’t smell,” she muttered morosely, and sneezed.
It was the first time Brittany had ever come to the medical clinic which had recently become a part of First Federal Bank as a new service for the employees, and despite the discomfort of her stuffed-up nose, she was intrigued. The clinic was small, but it was well-equipped. There had been no one in the small, comfortably furnished outer room waiting to see the doctor. She wondered if the clinic wasn’t being widely used, or if it was simply so efficient that no one had to wait. Brittany made a mental note to ask the bank vice-president who was in charge of medical services.
