This summary of prescription requirements by the CDC states that Wisconsin does not explicitly require that a medical professional physically examine a patient before prescribing medication. But it has the disclaimer that such a requirement may be included in a law requiring adherence to standard medical practices. If nothing else though, the doctor could get into trouble because Med 17.05 (1) (b) requires that a record of the prescription must be filed in the patient's record. If your friend doesn't have a patient record, then that part of the law can't be fulfilled.

Note of course that this is for prescriptions that aren't controlled substances.

Also, IANAL/D.
