D. Glen Morrell, MD


Dr. D. Glen Morrell is a general surgeon and has removed uncounted gallbladders, appendixes and hernias over the 17 years he has practiced at Tanner Clinic. He also performs breast surgery, endoscopies and colon cancer surgery.

Dr. Morrell graduated with his bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University, following that up with a master’s of business administration from the University of Utah. He turned his career to medicine and earned his M.D. at the U of U School of Medicine. It was in his third year of medical school that he settled on the specialty of surgery; despite the long hours required of a surgeon, he said, “those hours passed more quickly.”

Dr. Morrell’s residency in general surgery was complete at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita.

In 2011, Dr. Morrell was named “Davis County Doctor of the Year” by the Utah Medical Association Alliance. That follows a career distinguished with a stint as President of the Utah Medical Association from 2009 to 2012. He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery.

Dr. Morrell, along with his brother Stephen Morrell, a family practice physician in Tanner Clinic Kaysville, hail from Brigham City, Utah. The surgeon, who is married and the father of seven children, hopes to return to his favorite and long-ignored hobby of sketching. He’s also actively involved in hiking, skiing, genealogy and gardening.
