in A and B 'they' pronoun doesn't have a noun to refer to.
in C 'they' a plural pronoun referring to singular noun 'the patient'
in D not noly ....nor is wrong
only E remains ..

Correct Idiom - Not Only..But Also. Hence, E is the right choice.
A and B have incorrect usage of pronoun "they" as it does not have any antecedent.
C is out because of parallelism error and also because they is referring to singular noun, patient.
D is out because of wrong idiom - not only..nor will they

Consider giving a kudos, if you find the explanation helpful.
