Your ending is great! I wondered all along what that doctor did as I read your MC's misgivings.

Your last three paragraphs were stunning...almost like time crawls to a stop for that moment of realization. Awesome.

Your last line is powerful. I think you nailed the topic here. The reality is haunting, but it fits the character you've described, I'm glad that you ended it the way you did and brought the story full circle-especially with the last line. A favorite of mine this week! Great writing! ^_^
I loved the ending, too. A solid demonstration of why you are in masters.
I can't say that the doctor's specialty was a surprise, as that is a subject to which my antennae are rather atuned.
I was captivated by the story from the beginning and the end did not disappoint. Excellent writing!
Indeed blessed with a gift of discernment. If more of us wouldn't just pause but for a moment to listen to that still, small voice within. I enjoyed this and the tenacity of the MC to follow up on her hunch and then the turn around at the end...the paradigm shift - great, thoughtful writing.
This is a perfect gem of a story.

Wow, what a great ending! Not that the rest of it wasn't good too, of course, but the ending was just an "'ooh'-out- loud" kind of ending. Well done!
