An Ayue instructs students
I remember that when I was out of the clinic with the director, a patient was very excited and took his hand when he entered the clinic and said, "Doctor An, do you still remember me? The surgery you performed on me in 2006, I recovered very well. Good. Recently, my life is irregular and I have some constipation. You can see it again." Director An said: "Sorry, there are too many patients, and I can't remember clearly. But I have a record in my notebook, and I will find out when I check it."
In the clinical teaching, the director will explain the operation process and precautions step by step, carefully observe my operation method when changing the dressing, point out the irregularities, and even teach me the use of surgical instruments. When prescribing Chinese medicine, from the patient’s symptoms to the pulse condition, explain the etiology and pathogenesis, treatment prescriptions and specific drug selection process bit by bit. Not only that, the director also taught me how to communicate with patients. The director said: "The diseases in our anorectal department are relatively private. Some patients are embarrassed to speak up. They must relax during the consultation process. For example, when a patient enters the consulting room, I will first ask the patient what job he does, which unit he belongs to, and where he is from. Yes, so the patient will relax and talk about the condition like chatting with friends."
"The scalpel is cold, but our hearts must be hot"
"Practicing medicine and being a human being are the same, the most important thing is integrity and rigor."
To the surprise of the patient’s family, the patient’s constipation disappeared after 7 doses of Chinese medicine, his bowel movements were smooth, and his mental state was significantly improved. The patient insisted on taking the director's traditional Chinese medicine, the survival period reached 8 months, and the quality of life was significantly improved.
Although the director's words are brief and straightforward, they are enough to be useful for my life.
