    Correct Schema category

    There are ways to structure schema to show multiple types. But I would be more concerned that all of these major terms you want to rank for are used and discussed in the homepage text.

    No Pindrop on Embed Link

    Pediatrics & ortho using same office space

    They would also need separate websites.
