Chapter 247 Doctors Didn’t Knock on Patients’ Doors
At six o ‘clock in the afternoon, Fang Qiu returned to the clinic dejectedly.
Seeing Fang Qiu, Xu Miaolin and Feng Xuexin immediately came over with greeting.
Looking at Fang Qiu’s dejected face, Feng Xuexin asked with a sinister smile, “How was your going out to practice medicine? It must be very awesome, huh? I remembered those times I was forced to do that. It was really tiring, which I have never imagined before.”
Fang Qiu sighed with a bitter smile.
“How many patients did you see today?” Xu Miaolin asked with a smile.
Fang Qiu smiled bitterly and answered, “This only one was a kid caught and forced to be my patient by me when he was playing with mud on the roadside.”
Feng Xuexin couldn’t help laughing right away.
Xu Miaolin also smiled slightly.
Fang Qiu frowned and asked, “Why can everyone line up in the clinic to see a doctor, but can’t accept my initiative to come to see them?”
“There’s an old saying. I don’t know if you’ve heard it,” Xu Miaolin replied.
“What’s it?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Taoism can’t be passed down easily, and doctors don’t knock on patients’ doors.”
Xu Miaolin said solemnly, “Nobody in the world will admit that he is ill. If a doctor suddenly comes to you, saying that you’re ill, will you admit it when you’re living well at home?”
“For the world, the good things that happen abruptly are all not considered as good things.”
Speaking of that, Xu Miaolin reached out and patted Fang Qiu on his shoulder, saying, “This is the last lesson I prepare for you for the 24 days!”
Hearing that, Fang Qiu got stunned.
He understood what Xu Miaolin wanted to teach him. But it was a little unexpected.
Why would Xu Miaolin give him such a lesson?
However, since Fang Qiu had taken the lesson, he had naturally found some problems about it.
“Mr. Xu, what should we do if we really encounter someone who’s unaware of his illness on our way around and want to help him with his disease?
“Shouldn’t a medical practitioner save everyone in the world?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Come on! Are you a fool?”
Xu Miaolin looked at Fang Qiu contemptuously, replying, “Hook him with your knowledge and let him beg you. You can’t do that?”
Fang Qiu suddenly became speechless.
Apart from anything else, with those words, this lesson was really profound.
“It’s about time.”
After thinking for a while, Xu Miaolin said, “The Physician’s Qualification Examination will be held five days later. I’ve already signed you up for it in advance. The exam venue is in Nanjiang. As long as you can pass the exam, you can get the Physician’s Qualification Certificate and practice medicine independently.”
Feng Xuexin asked in surprise, “Fang Qiu just starts to learn Chinese Medicine, doesn’t he? How can he take the exam now? The Physician’s Qualification Examination requires the candidates to have at least three years’ apprentice experience, doesn’t it?”
“Oh, boy. I can help him go through the back door. You know?”
Xu Miaolin rolled his eyes at Feng Xuexin, saying with great certainty, “Fang Qiu has three years’ such experience!”
Feng Xuexin looked at Xu Miaolin with disdain in his eyes and replied with a righteous face, “It is our Chinese Medicine’s spirit to be upright and don’t walk in the wrong way.”
Xu Miaolin said teasingly, “You mean you wanna let some patients wait another three years for Fang Qiu to be a doctor?”
“Uh, no. You’re right. You should help him go through the back door.”
Feng Xuexin grinned.
In the following five days, Fang Qiu refused to slack for a second and continued to study as usual. Life was quiet, with nothing special happening.
In the fifth evening, Fang Qiu was about to leave for Nanjiang to take the exam. He even had no time to have dinner.
But suddenly, Feng Xuexin stopped him.
Fang Qiu was puzzled.
“Do you know where the Examination Association of Chinese Medicine Physicians is?” Feng Xuexin asked back.
“No. I’ll ask after I reach Nanjiang,” Fang Qiu answered.
“Don’t bother to do that. I’ll go with you.”
Feng Xuexin opened his mouth and said, “Wait, I’ll get someone here in a minute.”
Therefore, Fang Qiu could only wait in the clinic.
“Mr. Xu, was it you who let him go with me?” Fang Qiu turned to Xu Miaolin and asked.
“You can say that.”
Xu Miaolin added with a smile, “I asked him to take you directly to the Examination Association of Chinese Medical Physicians in Nanjiang. Who knows that he has already made up his mind to take his girlfriend out to go shopping and watch movies.”
Fang Qiu shook his head with a bitter smile.
It should be his journey. But now, he felt he was going to be a third wheel.
15 minutes later, Feng Xuexin indeed returned with a girl.
Standing at the door of the clinic, Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin saw her from afar.
They began to measure her with their eyes out of curiosity because it was the first time for them to see Feng Xuexin’s girlfriend.
Wearing a T-shirt with comic patterns, a pair of light blue jeans, and a pair of white sandals, this girl looked fresh and cool at a glance.
Her shoulder-length hair, not long and not short, exactly set off her temperament.
Her white face, although not as round as an egg, was with three-dimensional facial features, looking pretty beautiful.
Back at the clinic, Feng Xuexin said to Fang Qiu and Xu Miaolin with a giggle, “Let me introduce. This is Yang Fang, my… my girlfriend.”
Suddenly, he couldn’t help blushing.
“This is Uncle Xu.”
Pointing at Xu Miaolin, he added, “He’s an elder of mine.”
“Nice to meet you, Uncle Xu.”
Yang Fang immediately smiled and nodded.
“Glad to meet you.”
Xu Miaolin also nodded with a smile. From his expression, it could be told that he was satisfied with Feng Xuexin’s girlfriend.
“This is Uncle Xu’s disciple, named Fang Qiu.”
Feng Xuexin pointed at Fang Qiu and introduced.
“Hi, glad to meet you,” Yang Fang greeted.
“Glad to meet you, too,” Fang Qiu replied with a nod and a smile.
“Alright, that’s all. Let’s go?” Feng Xuexin asked.
“You don’t have luggage?”
Fang Qiu was stunned.
“No, it’s just a one-day journey.”
Feng Xuexin grinned.
“Are you really going to take an exam?” Yang Fang asked Fang Qiu.
Fang Qiu nodded.
“Alright, I thought it’s Feng Xuexin’s lie to deliberately ask me out,” Yang Fang said with a smile.
Then, Feng Xuexin called the taxi that he had booked already. Xu Miaolin saw the three off the town.
Arriving at the downtown, Feng Xuexin had been displaying his affection toward Yang Fang along the way, totally neglecting that Fang Qiu was still a bachelor.
Fang Qiu became speechless.
As for the Examination Association of Chinese Medical Physicians, only the senior Chinese Medical physicians knew where it was. Even the taxi drivers didn’t. Therefore, Feng Xuexin could only tell the driver the specific location, so that the driver could find it.
The Examination Association of Chinese Medical Physicians was the place preparing assessments for Chinese Medicine physicians.
The graduates from Chinese Medicine colleges didn’t take it, but the national unified Physician’s Qualification Certificate Examination.
Soon after, under Feng Xuexin’s guidance, the taxi stopped in front of the Examination Association of Chinese Medical Physicians.
“Is this the Examination Association of Chinese Medical Physicians?”
Getting off the taxi, Fang Qiu couldn’t believe what he saw.
Pointing at a dilapidated antique yard in front, Feng Xuexin replied, “I’ll just take you here. As for the details, you can go in and see for yourself. We’re going shopping. Call us after the exam.”
While speaking, Feng Xuexin reached out to hold Yang Fang’s hand directly and turned away.
“Hey, you’re not going to stay and see how I did on my exam?” cried Fang Qiu.
“I don’t want to see your showing off.”
Feng Xuexin answered contemptuously, “You just need to stand treat after the exam! No more requests!”
“See you later.”
As his voice faded away, Feng Xuexin had already gone far away.
Fang Qiu shook his head with a bitter smile.
Feng Xuexin seemed to be very confident in him!
“It’s very different from what I thought.”
Looking at the front yard, Fang Qiu stepped in with a curious face.
It was an ancient quadrangle dwelling, very large with lots of rooms.
When Fang Qiu entered it, many people had gathered inside.
At a glance, there were both young people and old people.
The only thing in common was that everyone was full of self-confidence.
Obviously, they were all here to get a Physician’s Qualification Certificate.
Standing in the outermost periphery, Fang Qiu didn’t deliberately go forward to greet people. He just stood quietly by himself and listened to the noise of the crowd.
“Old sir, you’re also here to get a certificate?” A young man asked an old man.
“Yes. Why? I can’t?”
The old man stared at the young one and said with dignity, “Chinese Medicine is a treasure of our China. Not only your young people but our old people should learn it.”
The young man nodded his head immediately and said, “Chinese Medicine is a regimen which is good for health.”
The old man raised his head and answered, “I’m also going to treat my grandson!”
“But, you didn’t learn Chinese Medicine before, did you? What made you start?” asked the young man.
“Young man, there are two reasons. One is to keep health, and the other is the Feeling Pulse Challenge between Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine a month ago.”
The old man’s eyes were as bright as torches. He added, “Fang Qiu has made a great contribution to our Chinese Medicine!”
Those words attracted the others around to join the two’s conversation.
The Feeling Pulse Challenge a month ago had not been forgotten yet!
“Yes, you’re right!”
“I believe, because of Fang Qiu, there must be more people studying Chinese Medicine.”
“Fang Qiu is really good!”
“Yes, I also heard that, because of his victory, the Chinese Medicine community even has the idea to hold a national Chinese Medicine competition among youth.”
“So did I.”
“It’s great if such a competition can be held. At least, it could expand the influence of our Chinese Medicine and let it rise again.”
“That’s a good thing. But I heard that Fang Qiu has been gone for a month. Nobody knows where he is.”
“There is no doubt that he’s hiding.”
“This young man named Fang Qiu has a bright future. He thinks little of fame, which deserves our respect,” the old man remarked.
And Everybody also followed to show their admiration toward Fang Qiu with sighs.
Of course, they couldn’t recognize Fang Qiu.
Because Fang Qiu had worn a mask on the live broadcast. Although it was an HD live broadcast, the videos from UJCM after it were not very clear.
So until now, there were still many people on the Internet looking for HD photos of Fang Qiu.
