This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
I walked into the waiting room of Dr. M. Scott Major in the hospital in Brigham City. I was the only person in the room that wasn't sick so that made me feel very good. I'm never anxious to see a doctor but on this occasion I was looking forward to meeting Dr. Major because I had heard so many interesting things about him and his practice.
The doctor splits his time between his office in Ogden and the hospital in Brigham City. Scott established a solo practice in Ogden as an ear, nose and throat doctor. He also works out of the out-reach clinic in Brigham City about once a week. His reputation as a specialist in Otolaryngology and work on ears, nose and throat is widely renowned.
Scott is a native of Davis County but moved back to Utah from Kentucky with his wife, Heather, who is also an M. D. The two had met while doing their medical training at the University of Utah. They both finished their residency training together and then came home to establish their practices. Heather is an OBGYN full time at the Ogden Women's Clinic, as well as the mother of their two children. Both Scott and Heather have been in practice in Utah for about two and a half years now.
I wanted to talk to Dr. Major about being an "aviation medical examiner." He is a pilot who loves to fly and is a flight instructor. He owns an airplane with his brother and has established a relationship with the FAA. He has contracted with them to do pilot examinations and works with pilots on flight medicine concerns and treatment.
His practice treats and performs surgery and trauma on "above clavicle" problems. (That is everything above the collarbone.) He works closely with plastic surgeons and oral surgeons to treat facial trauma cases. He also does a great deal for patients who have ears, nose and throat problems due to allergies.
Dr. Scott Major is happy to be back in Utah and his business is really "flying."
