Elixir Supplier - Chapter 498
“It shouldn’t be like this,” someone said.
A villager thought, If you had come here a few times, you would realize that as long as the special plate was not hung on the wooden door, Wang Yao was in the village and would soon come back to the clinic.
Instead, the villager said, “He lives in this village and should come soon.”
God, so many people!
After having breakfast, Du Mingyang went out to have a walk and a smoke. He had not yet arrived at the south of the village, but he could already see a row of cars parked outside the clinic. They were waiting to see the doctor. He wondered, Is his business that good?
After all, this was a cold day. Most of the people who waited to see the doctor were really anxious. Some of them came with children. With this long wait, even if the heater was turned on in the car, it would not last.
Du Mingyang knew his future brother-in-law had not yet come down from the mountain. The people waiting below were already starting complain. Since he was not in the mood to continue wandering and smoking in the village, Du Mingyang hurried back to Wang Ru’s home to tell her about the situation.
“Waiting outside?” Wang Ru rushed out to see the vehicles parked in the west of the clinic. She quickly called Wang Yao on the mountain.
“Hurry up and come down from the mountain. There are many people waiting to see the doctor,” she said.
“Got it,” Wang Yao replied.
He knew that he could not continue to prepare medicines on the mountain. The medicinal granules that had already been screened were individually packed and marked, so he went down the mountain.
There were already six cars waiting for him.
“He’s coming!” Someone saw Wang Yao coming from the mountains.
“Does Doctor Wang have the habit of going for a walk in the mountains after getting up in the morning?” Seeing him come from the mountain, people who came for treatment could not help guessing. “It’s fine as long as he is here now.”
“Sorry to have kept you long.” Wang Yao first apologized to those who waited outside.
He knew many people who came here for treatment were from far away. This reminded Wang Yao that everyone’s time was precious. Luckily, there were only a few people standing outside waiting this time.
“No worries,” someone who was waiting said.
“Yes, I haven’t waited for a long time,” another person waiting outside said.
Since the doctor had apologized, they could only respond in this way. After all, they were to seek the doctor’s help. Even the hospital’s didn’t usually open until 8:30.
“Come in, it’s cold outside,” Wang Yao said.
After opening the clinic, he turned on the air conditioner since there was no heater. He did not usually care how cold it was in the room, but today was different. Many of the patients were children, so it was a little cold for them.
At the beginning, Wang Yao did not think that there would be so many patients at one time. The number of chairs in the clinic was limited, so he could only let them stand for the time being.
Fortunately, his speed of seeing a patient was very fast. He could look, listen, question, and feel the pulse to quickly diagnosis. Often, he only needed to look and listen to determine the problem.
Most of the people who came to see doctor were suffering from a cold. He went about diagnosing and prescribing medicine to the adults, as well as massaging some of them, one after another. Most felt better after the treatment.
The younger children were a bit more troublesome to treat because they all needed to be massaged. Thanks to their own treatment, the adults had a better understanding of massage and how it could help cure the disease.
The treatment effect was obvious, especially for the children. Their symptoms quickly improved. Their fevers and coughs were gone. Their complexions were also much better. They even took the initiative to eat, which indicated that they felt much better.
“Thank you, Dr. Wang,” a patient said.
“Be careful on your way,” Wang Yao replied.
Everyone who came to see the doctor expressed gratitude to Wang Yao, especially those who came with their children. He was a bit surprised and thought, What are these parents really worried about?
Although their children were sick, many were very young and could not talk. This meant they could not talk about their conditions but could only cry, even though they just had colds. This made the parents very anxious. If they were really that concerned, it would have been better to go to a regular hospital close by instead of traveling to try folk medicine.
In fact, most of the people had come purposely to try folk prescriptions. They had heard there was a village doctor who had a surprisingly good effect on treating children’s colds. Fortunately, Wang Yao’s medical skills were superb, so they were not disappointed.
Wang Ru and Du Mingyang had stayed in the clinic to help. After about 20 minutes, they found that Wang Yao didn’t really need any help. They said goodbye to Wang Yao and left.
“I did not know that your brother’s medical skills were so powerful,” Du Mingyang said.
He didn’t know much about Wang Yao’s medical skills. He only heard from Wang Ru that they were pretty good. Although he had heard about Wang Yao’s skills, he truly couldn’t believe it until he saw it for himself. Now, Du Mingyang not only recognized Wang Yao’s talents, but he also recognized that he had mastered them.
Around 10 a.m., there were still seven or eight cars parked outside. It was a bit of a surprise to have such a busy clinic in Lianshan County, let alone in this remote mountain village.
“How did they know about your brother’s clinic?” Du Mingyang asked.
“How would I know?” Wang Ru asked.
“Hey, my future brother-in-law is amazing!” Du Mingyang raised his thumb.
“Don’t hurry to call him your brother-in-law,” she replied.
“He will be sooner or later. What kinds of diseases is Xiao Yao good at treating?” he asked.
“I don’t really know. He seems to understand everything,” Wang Ru said.
She knew that her brother was extraordinary in medicine, but she was not clear what kind of disease he was particularly good at.
“I understand. It’s so marvelous,” Du Mingyang said.
“You can ask him when you have lunch,” Wang Ru said. “Why are you suddenly asking this?”
“No reason. But, if any relatives are ill in the future, in addition to going to the hospital, it’s good to know there is another choice.” Du Mingyang smiled, subconsciously touching his pocket. He was ready to have a smoke.
“Ah!” Wang Ru, who was on the side, gave him a glance.
He immediately put his hand down. “Just habitual movements, habitual movements!”
Wang Yao kept seeing patients for the whole morning. He barely had to time to drink any water. It was noon by the time the last patient left. He closed the clinic’s door and went home to have a meal.
“Xiao Yao, how good your business is!” More than one village person greeted him on his way home.
After all, seven or eight cars had been parked on the road of the village, which was rare to see in the village except for a wedding. On this cold winter day, this would be another topic of conversation when the villagers drank tea or had a meal.
“Fortunately.” Wang Yao responded with a smile.
The food was ready when he went back home.
“Ready for a meal?” Wang Fenghua asked.
“Definitely,” Wang Yao replied.
“Are you tired after this morning?” Wang Ru asked. “This was the first time that so many people had come at once.”
“Yes. It may have a lot to do with the recent flu outbreak,” Wang Yao replied.
“How do they know about your clinic. Are you doing some publicity?” Du Mingyang asked.
“I don’t know really,” Wang Yao replied. “I didn’t do any publicity.”
He really didn’t do any advertising. If he did, he just made a verbal promotion among his friends. That was it.
After lunch, Wang Yao talked to his family a while before returning to the clinic. It was just past 1 p.m. and someone was waiting outside.
What a busy afternoon!
Wang Yao’s day didn’t end until after 6 p.m. After the last consultation, he recorded some of the patients diagnoses. Although most of them just suffered from common colds, some were still of reference value, such as those young children.
