Dr. Janelle Luk was born in Hong Kong, and Dr. Edward Nejat was born in New York. Both board-certified physicians in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility are a coming together of East and West with a steadfast and laser-focused commitment to what fertility care should be in the 21st century: transparent and collaborative with an emphasis on empowering a woman’s body.
Dr. Luk and Dr. Nejat are products of very traditional training at Harvard, Yale, and Cornell. Upon completing this training in conventional protocols, they spent years not only becoming great at the conventional protocols but also becoming some of the world’s experts in natural cycle and minimal stimulation protocols.
Generation Next Fertility brings together an exceptionally trained and dedicated team of physicians, nurses and medical assistants who are knowledgeable about natural and conventional treatment. They are compassionate and committed to our patients.
