What if I am unable to speak to my doctor?

In brief: Depends

If you are unable to speak to your Dr, and it's an emergency, then call 9-1-1.
If it is not a life threatening emergency then try calling the Dr's office first thing in the morning. Ask them the protocol for contacting the Dr, like what to do after hours, or on weekends if you have medical questions. Sometimes Dr's belong to a "call group" that take turns answering question after hours.
