I agree with you that Darcy expected to see Elizabeth when he went to the parsonage. In fact, I do not think he would have gone there just to see about calling an apothecary. Since arriving in Kent, Darcy has surely been able to see that Charlotte is a sensible woman, a person who would not leave a sick friend alone without proper medical attention.
Darcy might have even asked Charlotte whether an apothecary had been summoned or whether Charlotte thought it necessary. As long as he asked the question outside Mr Collins' hearing, Charlotte could give an honest assessment of Elizabeth's health. Now that I think about it, perhaps we should assume that Colonel Fitzwilliam asked such a question. Then Darcy would have been put at ease about Elizabeth's health and realize that she was alone in the parsonage. (Might as well give the Colonel some more hypothetical action in the story!)
