    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 939/939/M=1432) If there is compulsion as there are no men physicians available to treat the men patients or she only can treat such patients and no male physicians can do it, then she can treat men observing full purdah. It will not remain alright if she will violate the Shariah limits.
