Business map icon not showing.

The map icon for our business doesn't seem to come up for some reason. By map icon I mean the icon and name associated with type of business. If it's a restaurant, it's fork/knife. If it's supermarket it's shopping cart. Etc. Our listing would be healthcare/doctor so there should be a briefcase cross icon.

 

If we search, a pin drop does come up, but no icon without specific search. Everything has been verified. We have been there for a while and actually longer than some of the other businesses that do show up as icons.

 

We tried adding it as a "missing place" several times and email confirmation arrives but nothing on the map.

I'm afraid 

But there isn't any entitlement to get a "place label" for a certain business listing

Ah, I see. Thanks for the response.

 

But I wonder what I am missing from below...

 

"The place labels shown on Google Maps are determined algorithmically based on a large number of factors. One factor these algorithms consider is the accuracy of the business information and the richness of the content associated with the business. "
