When we call a doctor's office, we say,

I want to make an appointment.

However, I saw another use of this expression. It was like this:

I'm very busy. I make this appointment only since I take it this is urgent for you.

What is the meaning of this expression? Does it mean "I am answering (or am present for) this appointment only since..."?

    In general, it's a good idea to provide a source whenever possible. Are you sure it didn't say "I'll make this appointment"?

The doctor would say this to confirm an appointment with you and to give a reason for giving you an appointment.

To break it down

I make this appointment
I am giving you an appointment with me
I am making an appointment with you

only since
only because

I take it
it is my understanding that

this is urgent for you.
this is urgent for you.
