A physician's touching/looking at a non-maḥram patient

Q: Is it permissible for a male doctor to touch or look at the body of a woman during examination?

A: When treatment makes it necessary for the woman to uncover her body before a man doctor and for the doctor to touch and look at her body, and it is not feasible for the patient to see a woman doctor, there is no objection to it.
