Thanks in advance ....
How you translate this term depends first of all whether you are doing so for a UK or US audience. The previous response offering "office practice" is quite correct for the US. In the UK where specialist practice is organised rather differently because of the NHS, private practice or private clinic would be the equivalent.
France has many specialists in cabinets, which are small offices, usually located in private residential buildings. In the UK, where there is less private practice, specialists in private practice are usually located in private clinics and hospitals.
In the UK, pre-NHS, a consultant would have his "rooms." This is antiquated now, but does convey exactly what is going on in France to this day.
