Chapter 592 Competition!
The highly-skilled doctor, Yu Qing, looked at Fang Qiu and said with a faint smile, “Kid, you are too naive. I want to improve my medical skills to save more people. What’s wrong with that?”
“In order to improve my medical skills, develop Chinese Medicine, and save more patients, I’m willing to do anything I need to do, not to mention taking advantage of the situation!”
Yu Qing snorted and stared straight at Fang Qiu, showing no sign of giving in.
“Senior, I really admire your painstaking efforts.”
Fang Qiu had no choice but to shake his head and smile wryly.
“But I won’t force you.”
Yu Qing looked up at Fang Qiu and said, “Since I can’t get anything I want, then tell me, what can you give me in exchange?”
Fang Qiu was a little stunned as he heard that.
Then he immediately retorted Yu Qing and said, “I also want to improve my medical skills. Senior, you’re a master of traditional Chinese Medicine. Why don’t you help me?”
“Kid, are you trying to let me give it to you unconditionally?” Yu Qing looked at Fang Qiu with disdain.
His tone and expression simply showed that he looked down on Fang Qiu so much.
Fang Qiu felt helpless.
He then asked, “What if I teach you how to practice Qigong?”
“Oh?” Yu Qing’s eyes lit up.
Of course, he knew that at present, Fang Qiu was the only one in the whole Chinese Medicine circle who could use Qi. If he could learn to use Qi, then he could also naturally learn the method that Fang Qiu used to treat cancer!
“How long will it take for me to reach your level?” Yu Qing asked.
“With your current age, I’m afraid that it will be difficult for you to reach my level for the rest of your life,” Fang Qiu said with a serious face.
Yu Qing could also see that Fang Qiu wasn’t joking.
“If that’s the case, then what’s the point of learning it?” Yu Qing curled his lips in dissatisfaction.
Fang Qiu felt helpless. “Then what exactly do you want?”
“There’s no rush.” Yu Qing smiled and said, “Tomorrow, you’re going to treat patients in my clinic for a day. I need to visit patients at their homes tomorrow. You’ll have to help me treat patients in the clinic for one day.”
Fang Qiu asked, “Then I will get the book after I do it for a day?”
Yu Qing said, raising his head, “It depends on your performance.”
Fang Qiu nodded and said, “Okay! It’s settled then!”
“Pitter-patter… ” At this moment, footsteps were heard.
They saw that the person who came was Yu Qing’s apprentice.
The delicate young man was in his 30s.
He came to the door of the inner room.
When the young man saw Fang Qiu, he froze.
“Fang, Fang Qiu?”
Looking at Fang Qiu, the young man said, “Are you Fang Qiu?”
“Yes.” Fang Qiu nodded with a smile.
“You, you are the one with strange types of pulse just now?” the young man asked again.
“It’s me.” Fang Qiu nodded again.
The young man stammered, and then suddenly there was a burst of anger in his eyes. He said, “I want to compete with you.”
As he spoke, he looked really eager.
It seemed that he had wanted to compete with Fang Qiu for a long time.
Yu Qing laughed and said, “Ha-ha. My apprentice isn’t convinced by your ability for a long time. If he hadn’t exceeded the age of taking part in the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor, he would definitely have also gone to participate in the competition and challenge you.”
“Oh?” Fang Qiu was surprised.
“My name is Yao Xue,” the young man said as he walked up to Fang Qiu.
“Hello.” Fang Qiu nodded.
“What do you think my apprentice’s ranking would be if he participated in the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor?” Yu Qing asked.
“He learns from a well-known teacher and is an excellent student. He will naturally rank among the top,” Fang Qiu answered with a smile.
“What’s the place?” Yu Qing asked again.
“Well…” Fang Qiu gave a wry smile. Although there were no other people participating in the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor around him, Yu Qing kept forcing him to say the specific place, which really made him feel that he might offend someone.
Both Yu Qing and Yao Xue stared straight at Fang Qiu, waiting for his answer.
There was no way to avoid it, so Fang Qiu had to say it. “Top five.”
Helplessly, Fang Qiu could only give the answer he thought.
“Only top five?”
Yao Xue was stunned and said, “I’ve watched all the episodes of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor. Judged from the performance on TV, the strength of those young people is not very good. With my ability, I can only be ranked among the top five. Are you sure?”
Fang Qiu smiled a little awkwardly and said, “Although you may not like what I say, you can only make it this far.”
As he heard that, Yao Xue’s expression changed instantly.
Fang Qiu was completely giving him a blow and looking down on him!
As the apprentice of a highly-skilled doctor, how could he bear it?
“Which place do you think you can get?” Yu Qing asked Yao Xue.
“I think I can win first place!”
Yao Xue stared at Fang Qiu and answered Yu Qing’s question, “Although I don’t have a powerful family background, I still have a prominent teacher. I’ve been taught by my master for many years and believed that I get some strength. I’m sure I’m one of the best among the young generation.”
Yu Qing asked, “Do you think he can’t make it?”
Fang Qiu replied hastily, “It’s not that he can’t do it. He’s also powerful.”
Yu Qing smiled and said, “That will do. You two can have a competition.”
Yao Xue’s eyes lit up as he heard that.
Fang Qiu continued to smile wryly.
He had a feeling that he had accidentally fallen into the trap set by the master and his apprentice.
Yu Qing looked at Fang Qiu and said, “What’s wrong about competing with him? How am I supposed to know your strength if you don’t do it? If you can’t defeat him, you don’t need to borrow my treasure book anymore. It’s useless to borrow it if you’re not capable.”
This was simply forcing Fang Qiu into a dead end.
What else could Fang Qiu do?
Obviously, he had to do as they said!
Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to borrow the treasure book.
“All right then.”
Fang Qiu gave a wry smile. Looking at the master and apprentice who had succeeded in their plot, he asked gloomily, “What do you want to compete for?”
Yao Xue said, “I will compete with you for the two methods of the Four Methods to Diagnose a Disease. We can only look at and listen to the patients, but we don’t question them and feel their pulses. And we have to diagnose the patients with these two methods. Do you dare to do that?”
“Okay.” Fang Qiu nodded in agreement.
He knew that the looking diagnosis of the Four Methods to Diagnose a Disease of Chinese Medicine wasn’t simple.
It was basically impossible for ordinary people to see any diseases from the superficial features of the human body. As a doctor of Chinese Medicine, it required a profound medical skill to diagnose a patient by only looking at the patient.
“Since it’s settled, let’s start in the afternoon.”
Yu Qing said with a smile, “It’s lunchtime now, and we’ve seen all the patients in the morning. When the clinic opens in the afternoon, we’ll compete it through the first patient.”
“Okay.” Yao Xue immediately nodded in response, looking quite confident.
“Okay.” Fang Qiu nodded.
Yu Qing smiled.
He was also very confident in his apprentice because Fang Qiu was absolutely at a disadvantage compared with the number of patients they had seen and the time when they had studied medicine. It was impossible for him to defeat Yao Xue.
After all, Yao Xue had been learning from him for a long time. He started from a young apprentice. He was now in his 30s. Fang Qiu certainly couldn’t compare with him for such a long experience in seeing patients.
As a freshman, no matter how powerful and capable he was, he couldn’t fill the gap in the experience of seeing patients.
Therefore, he thought Fang Qiu would lose.
However, Fang Qiu still remained calm.
Yu Qing treated Fang Qiu for lunch. The dishes they ate were all healthy dishes without even a touch of oil or meat.
Fortunately, Fang Qiu wasn’t picky about food.
After lunch, he rested for 40 minutes. They didn’t start the consultation until two o’clock in the afternoon.
Fang Qiu and Yao Xue came to the clinic together for competition.
Yao Xue was sitting there seeing patients.
Fang Qiu sat on one side, holding paper and a pen in his hand.
At the same time, Yu Qing was also waiting to see the competition between the two.
Soon, the first patient came in.
As they looked up, they found that it turned out to be a little boy.
Neither of them asked any questions.
When the little boy came over, they both stared at him.
“How old is the child?” As the little boy sat down, Yu Qing asked the child’s mother.
“He’s already 13 years old,” the child’s mother said.
“Alright, there’s no need to say anything else. They will take a closer look at the child,” Yu Qing said.
The two of them began to look at and listen to the patient.
The two of them wrote while watching. Each of them was on their own side. They didn’t see each other’s answers. Yu Qing was watching them from the side.
Fang Qiu looked at the child and found that his mind was clear. He also looked energetic. His face was slightly red with bright eyes. His body shape was moderate.
When he was seeing the doctor, the child talked to his mother constantly.
His voice was clear, and he breathed in slowly. He didn’t cough, nor did he smell anything unusual.
This child’s hair was thick and glossy. His skin was smooth without any abnormality in color, and he didn’t suffer from rashes.
He looked quite normal.
Yao Xue opened his mouth and said, “Show me your tongue.”
The child stuck out his tongue.
Yao Xue and Fang Qiu looked at him at the same time.
His pale red tongue was slightly dark. The coating on the tongue was thin and white.
Yao Xue slightly froze as he saw that.
Judging from the current situation, this child was quite normal and shouldn’t be seriously ill.
However, Fang Qiu immediately observed the child’s facial features and neck.
His head was the size of an ordinary person, and his eye sockets were normal. The whites of his eyes were not yellow. He didn’t have flaring nostrils. His ears were ruddy without aural fistula or sores. His teeth were white, without any caries.
“Open your mouth.” Fang Qiu stepped forward and asked the child to open his mouth so as to observe the condition inside his mouth.
He found that the pharynx of his mouth was ruddy without acute tonsillitis.
His neck was also symmetrical. No blue veins could be seen.
Then he looked at his chest and abdomen and found that they were flat.
He then put his hand in the apical pulse of the child and could feel his strong pulsation. At the same time, he used his hand to feel the heartbeat of the child, finding that the child’s heart rate was 100 times a minute. His heart rate was normal.
There was no lump glomus on his abdomen. And no blue veins were exposed.
Yao Xue also began to do an examination on the child.
Fang Qiu didn’t get disturbed at all and continued his examination.
He didn’t detect any abnormalities in the child’s upper limbs, spine, and left leg.
However, when he examined the pelvis, Fang Qiu found that the child had pelvic obliquity. When he continued to check, he found that the child’s right groin was slightly swollen. His skin temperature was slightly high. The child seemed painful when he pressed it.
Fang Qiu continued to examine.
He also found that the child’s right foot was three centimeters longer than the left foot.
As he finished the examination, Fang Qiu began to write diagnosis conclusions and a prescription.
Yao Xue was still making a diagnosis in accordance with formal traditional medicine.
Of course, he also detected what Fang Qiu had seen.
Several minutes later, the diagnosis conclusions and prescriptions written by the two were handed over to Yu Qing.
Yu Qing took a look.
The symptoms they found were exactly the same.
However, the only difference was that Fang Qiu used various means to find out much useful information, such as heart rate.
As for Yao Xue, he had been following the traditional methods. Therefore, in the diagnosis conclusions, he didn’t have many details as Fang Qiu did. He didn’t find as much information as Fang Qiu did, either.
