    Which one of the above words do I have to use when I try to find out a doctor's office hours? (consultation hours)
    Are those synonyms?

    診療 is better. As you said, they are used like synonyms each other: 診察, which is diagnosis examination, is sometimes used instead of 診療, vice versa. But I recommend you 診療. If necessary, add 時間: 診療時間. e.g. 診療時間 9:00~12:00.
