Advanced Practice Professionals - Great Bend

Spotlight: Huma Baig, Advanced Practice Provider

Huma Baig, PA, specializes in cardiology on the Kansas City Campus. Colleagues describe her as pleasant, ambitious, poised and joyous. "She has this infectious positive attitude and enthusiasm that’s easy to notice from the moment you meet her," says hospitalist Abebe Abebe, MD. "She is the kind of advanced clinical provider you want to have by your side every day."

Her communication skills make her a role model for peers. As someone who is invested in knowing more, Huma communicates with referring physicians and other consultants to uncover “issues that were a puzzle at first,” and she engages in conversations with team members, interns and residents to provide a recommendation from a cardiology standpoint.

A colleague in the Heart Failure Clinic points to Baig’s compassion, empathy, diligence and trust: "I believe wholeheartedly the kind of environment Huma creates is the kind that future physicians, advanced care providers and nurses should be trained at."
