When selecting a specialist for any major medical procedure, such as open-heart surgery, the patient should take care to choose the specialist who has performed that procedure the greatest number of times. This is because patients facing major medical procedures should not have to concern themselves with whether or not the selected surgeon is adequately skilled.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?

(A) The specialist who has performed a medical procedure the greatest number of times has better-than-average faculty with that procedure.

(B) If a patient experiences anxiety prior to undergoing a certain medical procedure, he or she is less likely to successfully recover from the procedure.

(C) Most patients do not take care to select specialisist on the basis of the specialist's experience with the medical procedure involved.

(D) Patients should disregard the recommendations of their regular physicians when deciding which specialist to select for an unusual medical procedure.

(E) Only the specialist who has performed a specific medical procedure the greatest number of times is capable of carrying out that procedure successfully.

E.

arg- select Dr with max number of procedure and then he won't have to worry.

E supports that

I hope that you are joking. A Dr. in Africa sees 100s of patients a day, President Bush's Dr. only see 1 person a day. At that rate, after 10 years in practice, the Dr. in Africa would likely see more patients than Bush's Dr., I still will take Bush's Dr. opinion over any famous African Dr. anyday of the week.

In my opinion, A is better, E goes too far.
However, you example is not appropriate here, President Bush's Dr. maybe only see 1 person a day, as you know, the Dr. must be the top specialist in worldwide, must be a genius, and must have seen a great number of patients before becoming the top specialist. Your choice is correct, just the comparison here is not as good as your choice.
