Obviously by now you have had this procedure done. I'm sorry you had to be uncomfortable while waiting for an appointment. It is one of those issues where only you can decide what it is worth to you - if paying for an urgent care visit is more important than the discomfort associated with waiting for an appointment. Each person responds differently and some have no irritation whatsoever. Your provider would not know this was going to be such an ordeal for you and it sounds like they did what they could to accommodate you, assuming you could tolerate the wait. Communication with the provider is the only thing I could recommend. Perhaps the message was not clear that you were in such pain but it is also possible the doctor was not available at all until then. That of course would leave you with just the two options - wait or go to urgent care clinic.
