Female medicine is not easy to find in Dubai, even for the most seasoned travellers.
While there are a handful of male doctors in the city, many male medical professionals are simply not available to practice.
“If you’re a female and you want to get into the male medical field, you need to find a partner and have the right support system,” says Naeem Al-Jaberi, a resident doctor at the Dubai Medical Centre.
“There are also many male residents who are very sceptical about male patients.” “
Al-Sudani, who works in Dubai’s male health care sector, says that male patients who need surgery are often left to fend for themselves. “

Al-‘Ali, the Dubai-based head of a medical clinic in the capital’s international district, says male patients can be left to their own devices.
“It’s not easy for them to get their surgery done in Dubai because the facilities are not built for this,” he tells FourFourtwo.
“We have a female surgeon and two male surgeons, but they are not available in the same way.”
Male patients are often treated by female doctors, who are less willing to discuss male medicine in Dubai source Fourfourtwo title Male medicine can be expensive, male doctors say article Al-Rashidi says that the shortage of male physicians is partly due to the country’s strict dress code.
“Dubai is a country where the dress code is very strict,” he explains.
“This is the reason that male doctors are reluctant to work in Dubai.” “

However, many female doctors do have confidence in their male patients.
“Some male patients are quite confident and they trust the male doctor and the medical services provided to them,” says Al-Qasim, a doctor who works at a Dubai clinic.
“They don’t want to disclose their problems to their female patients because they don’t trust them to treat them properly.”
“I think that male medicine is also better than female medicine in terms of safety,” Al-Alimi adds.
“Many male patients come to Dubai with minor injuries or infections, so they don�t need to see a doctor.”
While male doctors often feel intimidated by female patients, they can still find their way around the city’s streets.
“Sometimes I go to the back of the city and there are people walking with their children in their hands,” says Dr Al-Khatib, who lives in Dubai with his wife and three daughters.
“The doctors don’t really bother with us and they just treat us as we are.”
Dubai’s female doctors are also aware of the challenges they face in the field.
“My male patients often don’t speak English and are always in a hurry,” Al-‘Alimi says.
They do not even bother to wait for the doctor to get back to them.” “
After that, they get impatient and go away.

As well as male doctors, male patients sometimes need to seek out female medical specialists to help them through the process.
“Male patients are more concerned with their own health than they are with their female partners,” Al ‘Ali adds.
Al ‘Alimi, however, believes that female doctors can help female patients through this process.
Male patients need female doctors who are willing to talk about their concerns.
“A female doctor is someone who has a deep knowledge of her subject matter,” he adds.
