Sachin, Regarding choice (B)
The construction "A patient .. will find it difficult, unless there will be another doctor..." is incorrect. Unless requires present tense.

Example:
Correct: I will not do X UNLESS there IS Y.
Wrong: I will not do X UNLESS there WILL BE Y.

Please tagging properly the question. level, what is tested and so on and so forth. This is useful for other students that wolud like to search for similar question.

Clearly is C the answer. The others point out the doctor instead is the testimony nedeed to prove something not the doctor per se.

Hope is clear

Option A is wordy. It is not concise.
Option B uses the incorrect tense. In this case and many others, you cannot use 'will' twice.
Option D is wordy.
Option E is incorrect grammatical construction.
