    vacancy, schedule - vocab

    Hello,

    If have a vocabulary doubt.
    Imagine the following conversation:

    Patient - Hello, I'd like to set an appointment with doctor X. When is the next availabe (time, vacancy, schedule..) on his agenda?

    Secretary - Doctor X's agenda is full for the next two weeks. The closest (schedule, time...) is on November 18th.

    What word should be used there? I think none of my options are ok.

    Thank you.

    There's no problem with the multiple uses of "appointment" since this isn't literature; and it's common in a short conversation like this where you want information.
