[Updates: 07/13/2010 09:00pm Added william ayres' testimony about his involvement in the design of his office suite.]
HighlightsI suppose the most charming of the features is:
Separate Entrances & Exit
Complex offers 26 off-street parking spaces
Fresh interior Paint
Carpets and window coverings
Separate entrances and exit. That way patients who are waiting for their appointment can't see the traumatized look on the faces of the prior patient as he's leaving the office, plus it minimizes the odds that there will be "note comparing" about the child molestation going on within, leading to possibly costly lawsuits or prison time.
They forgot to mention the wood paneled hide-away area that the parents won't notice while they're being interviewed, and then when the young boy comes in, the doors can be opened to show all kinds of exciting models and toys, and a table where the boys can be conveniently molested from time-to-time.

from the molester's own mouth:
Cross examination on July 9, 2009, from the testimony of William Hamilton ayres during his first trial on charges relating to his molestation of many young boys:
Prosecutor McKowan (Question): Now, you talked about at the beginning of your career in San Mateo County that you actually built the building that you spent the most years of your career in? I mean not personally, but…
Molestor william ayres (Answer): Well, not personally, but a group of us built a medical office building.
Q: Can you tell me what the address of that building is?
Q: And that’s in San Mateo County?
Q: In the city of San Mateo also?
Q: Okay. And how did you go about building that building? Did you hire an architect?
Q: And you had input on the design of the building?
Q: And you knew that your office was going to be in that building?
Q: You had already been practicing, and you had come from the Judge Baker and had been in another office here in San Mateo County prior to that?
Q: And you already at that time knew that doing a physical examination was, in your mind, an important part of doing psychiatric treatment on adolescents?
Q: So when you had your office built, did you not have an area in your office specifically designated for conducting physical exams?
A: I had in mind using a particular area in my office for doing physical examination, yes.
Q: And are you talking about the area behind the accordion doors?
Q: And, in fact, that turned out to be a table where you had the kids build models?
Q: And you said play cards, and there were games and things like that?
A: Yes, but this was not only in my office. It was in several offices.
[DS Note: I wonder if Etta Bryant used her area for the same purposes?]
Q: Okay. And you did not have a traditional examination table anywhere in your office, the kind you would –
Q: -- normally see in a doctor’s office with a padding, or with paper on it or anything like that?
Q: You did not have a light in that area that would be specific for focusing on aspects of the body, like you would see normally in a doctor’s office?
A: Well, you wouldn’t see the kind of light you see in surgery, that’s moved around.
A: But there were lights on the top, inside the – that shined down. So there was a light for the area whether they were building a model or having a physical.
Q: Like a light bulb or fluorescent light or something like that?
A: yeah, fluorescent lighting. Yeah.
Q: And it didn’t have any place in there for the storage of medical equipment or anything like that?
A: No, it did. I had a drawer that was off limits to children patients, and that contained an ophthalmoscope – and I’m going to have trouble with thinking of – stethoscope, and blood pressure equipment and various kinds of medical equipment.
Q: Okay. Now, you said you had another table in your office also?
Q: And instead of reserving this area behind the accordion doors to be a dedicated medical examination area, you instead chose to use it for sort of a play area for the kids as well?
Q: And prior to doing examinations, would you wipe down the table?
[DS Note: This is certainly a qualified lie. I don't recall ever seeing it wiped down, and in fact I recollect being somewhat concerned about getting model glue or paint on me.]
Q: Right before you would do it?
A: Yes. I mean, in the sense that it would be like the first time that it would be used that day. I would wipe it down, yes.
Q: And you would wipe it down after you were done doing an examination?
Q: Did you have a place where the kids could undress in privacy, like behind a screen or anything like that?
Q: Did you have another, like, closet or any place in there where kids could go to be private while they undressed?
Q: Did you have gowns that they could wear, you know, like even the little paper kind that you put on when you go to the doctor?
Q: Nothing like that. No paper shorts?
Q: How about draping, anything that a child could put over their lap prior to the time, like, while you were examining their head, and their neck, and their chest that might cover their genital area?
Q: Okay. And you didn’t use gloves at all?
Q: Not ever during the entire course of your career?
A: Well, if you doing something – I don’t know. I’d have to think, because there are very few reasons why, with just general physicals, you’d ever use gloves.
Q: You didn’t –
A: And that’s the way it was taught at Yale, so…
Q: Did you have gloves in your office?
A: Yes, I had gloves.
Q: So sometimes you would use them and –
A: I mean, somebody came in with a cut and they were bleeding all over, I certainly would use gloves.
Q: Okay. But you would examine the genitals of a boy without using your gloves?
Q: And you didn’t do any genital examinations of girls?
Q: And you didn’t invite the parents in the room during the time that you were conducting the physical examinations?
Q: Did you ever ask the child if they wanted to have their parent brought in the room?
Q: When the examinations were completed, did you ever call the parents in to discuss with them the results of the physical examination with the child?
A: The parents were frequently not there. The parent would come and drop off the youngster, and the youngster would come up to the waiting room and come into the office. So the parents were not necessarily around. If they were in the waiting room, generally speaking, I might speak to the mother on the way out, particularly if there was no, up, particular finding in the – in the exam. If there was nothing, you know, I would say that everything was fine and that would be that. But – But no.
