The Doctor's Office is a narrow corridor between two large fins of rock that houses a bunch of fairly new bolted lines (and a few trad and mixed lines as well). The Pharmacy is the upper part of the same corridor (blocked off by a huge chockstone) that is easily accessed via a rebar ladder. The southern wall is generally vertical to slightly overhanging and offers pocketed and edgey sandstone climbing on less than perfect rock. The northern wall has mostly slabby climbing on black rock. This area gets all day shade and remains cool even in the summer heat.
Located down below The Book of Friends. Drive to the well-signed Cave Springs Campground (2 miles from the bottom of the switchbacks) and park. Walk to the bridge just in from the entrance, and from the northwest corner of the bridge locate a trail that heads NW up a small hillside in the direction of the obvious Book of Friends dihedral. This trail skirts around the hillside and then follows the edge of a wash all the way up into the corridor. Hiking time is about 10 minutes.
