Brief Answer: XXXXXXX Cancer society did not approve this

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Dr XXXXXXX in New Rochelle has very good reviews online and amongst the local community in NY. He is basically an internist in main stream medicine however being an old time practitioner he chose to practice holistic medicine.

Ozone therapy is used as treatment in various diseases but this therapy has not been approved by XXXXXXX Cancer society and there are no benefits in treatment of cancer. Of course it shrinks tumor but will it reduce the blood supply to the tumor further may result in less therapeutic effect of chemo is still unknown. I am not sure if there is any added benefit using it along with chemotherapy.

I think this is a call you should take after talking to your main stream Oncologist who is giving you chemotherapy.
