He moved with his family to Annapolis in 1981 and started his pediatric practice in Edgewater. After many successful years, the practice has grown to incorporate two more offices in Maryland, including Stevensville and Dunkirk, and a full staff of pediatricians and certified registered nurse practitioners. 

In his professional experience, Dr. Baig serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (since 1986). He is also on active staff within the Department of Pediatrics at Anne Arundel Medical Center (since 1981), and can be found on the faculty within the Department of Nursing at Johns Hopkins (since 2000), on the teaching faculty at Anne Arundel Community College (Physician Assistant Program), and on the teaching faculty at Walden University (Nurse Practitioner Program). 

The doctor’s acclaimed career in medicine began after he earned his medical degree from Dow Medical College in Pakistan in 1975. After graduation, he relocated to the United States. Once there, he performed his internship in pediatrics and internal medicine at MedStar Harbor Hospital in 1977, followed by his residency in pediatrics at the University of Maryland in 1980, where he served as Chief Resident.
