Was there such a thing as a doctor's office in 1898, or did they practice their field from home?

In the "Sherlock Holmes" stories of that period "Dr. Watson" makes mention of patients calling at his home after he moved out of 221-B Baker Street when he married.

To give it a Titanic connection, in 1913 the husband of stewardess Evelyn Marsden, Dr W A James, was practising in a surgery a few hundred metres from his house. A later doctor in the same town practised in a surgery attached to the house. Doctors' varied procedures according to circumstances. A country doctor I used to attend was practising at home as late as 2001.

I'm glad I came across this thread because I am in the midst of writing a Titanic story and had planned on writing of an occurrence at a doctor's, more specifically a psychiatrist's, office, in Manhattan. Given the information I've read here so far, could this be possible? I would think in such a major metropolitan area there would have to have been at least a few. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
