Adventist Health Welcomes Third Specialist to Lung Care Center


HANFORD – Lung care specialist Dr. Ashraf Elsayegh, MD, FCCP, has joined Dr. Saqib Rashid and Dr. Gregory Warner to care for patients at the Adventist Health / Lung Care Center in Hanford. 

The three physicians, who are board-certified in pulmonology and critical care, see patients who suffer from asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sleep-related disorders, nicotine addictions or lung issues such as shortness of breath, upper respiratory infections or bronchitis.

Dr. Elsayegh, who is also board-certified in sleep medicine, is currently the Pulmonary Director and Clinical Chief of Pulmonary Medicine for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and Medical Director for IMA Coastal Cal Sleep Center in Visalia. He also has a Pulmonary, Sleep and Critical Care Medicine private practice in Los Angeles.

Previously, Dr. Elsayegh served as director of the Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and as medical director for several sleep labs throughout California.

Dr. Elsayegh completed his medical training in internal medicine at University of New York, Brooklyn, and a pulmonary/critical care fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Dr. Elsayegh became a physician to help people, he said. He chose the critical care specialty because he enjoys the fast-paced nature of the field. He is married, has two children and enjoys hiking and playing water sports. He speaks English and Arabic. 

The Lung Care Center is located at the Hanford Medical Pavilion, in Suite 305, at 125 Mall Drive in Hanford.  The phone number is 559-537-0440 and the fax is 559-537-0042.
