"Emergency" was probably not the right word to use. I'm thinking more of when you know you really need to be seen and get an Rx asap.

One weekday day being closed wouldn't be a deal breaker if it was a practice I liked, especially if they had a number you could call after hours. And part of a good relationship with your PCP is the doc has a better feel for whether your problem can be managed over the phone if the office is closed.
