Does it sound legit that my doctor cancelled an upcoming appointment for an emergency?

He's a surgeon and this was a first time consult.

I can see cancelling for an emergency, but the appointment was a week away. How do you know there's going to be an emergency in a week?

    Yes, it sound legitimate.  You're assume the emergency was about a patient. Maybe is mother died or a kid was in an accident.  Whether or not the doctor has a "real" emergency or not doesn't really matter.  Either you reschedule with this surgeon or you are free to schedule with another one.

    Maybe the emergency is forcing him to reschedule all patients, a ripple effect so to speak

      That is the most likely answer.

    Maybe his parent has Alzheimer's and the nursing home isn't working out so, he had to fly out and fix everything.

    Their kid got into a car accident, wife got diagnosed with cancer.
