Medical school professor: Most malpractice suits arise out of patients' perceptions that their doctors are acting negligently or carelessly. Many doctors now regard medicine as a science rather
than an art, and are less compassionate as a result. Harried doctors sometimes treat patients rudely, discourage them from asking questions, or patronize them. Lawsuits could be avoided if doctors learned to listen better to patients. Unfortunately, certain economic incentives encourage doctors to treat patients rudely.

The medical school professor's statements, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?

(A) Economic incentives to treat patients rudely are the main cause of doctors being sued for malpractice.
(B) The economic incentives in the health care system encourage doctors to regard medicine as a science rather than as an art.
(C) Malpractice suits brought against doctors are, for the most part, unjustified.
(D) The scientific outlook in medicine should be replaced by an entirely different approach to medicine.
(E) Doctors foster, by their actions, the perception that they do not really care about their patients.

(A) Economic incentives to treat patients rudely are the main cause of doctors being sued for malpractice. No, "Most malpractice suits arise out of patients' perceptions that their doctors are acting negligently or carelessly". It is not the same.
(B) The economic incentives in the health care system encourage doctors to regard medicine as a science rather than as an art. No, "ertain economic incentives encourage doctors to treat patients rudely". It is not the same.
(C) Malpractice suits brought against doctors are, for the most part, unjustified. No. We do not know it.
(D) The scientific outlook in medicine should be replaced by an entirely different approach to medicine. Too categorical. Too extereme. We can not do so.
(E) Doctors foster, by their actions, the perception that they do not really care about their patients. Sure. "Most malpractice suits arise out of patients' perceptions that their doctors are acting negligently or carelessly"
