"I need to get in now" appointments are usually something that tincture of time can heal, at least from my POV.


There are urgent issues that shouldn't wait a few days. A reason that I like Kaiser is their urgent care clinic. With injuries that aren't serious enough for any priority in emergency, but require treatment arranging a same day (normally in a few hours) appointment in urgent care is good.

Injuries that require cleaning and maybe a dozen stitches or a dislocated toe require urgent treatment. They aren't going away, and are not critical enough to have any priority in emergency.

Having difficulty breathing or tangling with a black widow spider does get attention in emergency.
