It was nearly impossible to diagnose the girl’s illness even after three hospitalizations, several months of therapy, and a near mental breakdown because no one medical professional – neither her therapist nor her doctors – were able to see the full scope of her symptoms.

(A) neither her therapist nor her doctors – were able to see
(B) not even her therapist nor her doctors – were able to see
(C) including her therapist and her doctors – were able to see
(D) not even her therapist nor her doctors – was able to see
(E) neither her therapist nor her doctors – was able to see

Why choice (A) is wrong ? As per SV agreement, her doctors agrees to WERE and not WAS.
Please let me know where i might be wrong here.

you are not parsing the sentence correctly ---->read it like this : no one medical professional was able to see the full scope of her symptoms. the thing embedded in DASH will not affect the surrounding grammar !!
