â€œThough they soon will, patients should not have a legal right to see their medical records. As a doctor, I see two reasons for this. First, giving them access will be time-wasting because it will significantly reduce the amount of time that medical staff can spend on more important duties, by forcing them to retrieve and return files. Second, if my experience is anything to go by, no patients are going to ask for access to their records anyway.â€

I think it is A

We are looking for something that doesn't destroy the fact that "time will be wasted"

B) The task of retrieving and returning files would fall to the lowest-paid member of a doctorâ€™s office staff.
so time won't be wasted if doctor's patients don't ask for records

(C) Any patients who asked to see their medical records would also insist on having details they did not understand explained to them.
again, if doctors' patients don't ask for records they aren't likely to ask for explanations, so time won't be wasted again

(D) The new law does not rule out that doctors may charge patients for extra expenses incurred specifically in order to comply with the new law.
says nothing that relates to time or the fact that patients don't ask for the info from this specific doctor

(E) Some doctors have all allowing their patients access to their medical records, but those doctorsâ€™ patients took no advantage of this policy.

by POE the answer is A, which makes sense... if the law required to write notes right away, then it wastes time because the patients don't ask for the records anyway... (despite the common sense that you need records... but remember not to assume anything solving this stupid GMAT CR logic!!!)
