    Yes, The Mayo Clinic does get bogged down in classic photos moving in and out (a Burns hallmark). But its success stories help drive home those very lessons William Mayo wanted to impress upon his peers. It’s a great elevator speech for a business that doesn’t really need one.

    The documentary’s structure, jumping between history and contemporary patient stories, is a bit choppy, but the themes are timely.

    The film is a work of praise, not an expose.
