Probably yes. NY Public Health Law section 1399 prohibits smoking in workplaces, defined as any indoor area in the control of an employer, and commercial establishments used for any profession and trade. The doctor's office lobby falls into the prohibition on smoking. Put your complaint to the managment company in writing- there should be an on-site managment company employee available to enforce the no smoking law.
