Memorable words from the Mayo brothers, Dr. Will and Dr. Charlie, and their father, Dr. William Worrall Mayo
A family of doctors who gave their name — and values — to Mayo Clinic.
William Worrall Mayo, M.D. (1819-1911)
The father of the Mayo brothers was a highly regarded doctor who inspired his sons with values that remain central to Mayo Clinic.
William J. Mayo, M.D. (1861-1939)
Dr. Will, the elder Mayo brother, was an internationally acclaimed surgeon and ambassador of the medical profession.
Charles H. Mayo, M.D. (1865-1939)
Dr. Charlie, the younger Mayo brother, was considered more informal and approachable than Dr. Will, but both brothers were equally esteemed by patients and colleagues.
