Reviewed on Sep 18, 2019

I appreciate very much that both the Doctor and the Audiologist seemed to fit me in to a very busy day, but even the doctor did not look at me when he read my results. I had to read his lips from the side. When he asked questions, if I didn't quite understand or get right to what he was asking, he would wave his hands in an irritated manner, rushing me to get to the point. He brought up cochlear implant, which was a shock at the moment. I had heard I had to be completely deaf first. He said, "You're almost there!" He prescribed prednizone, which I took, intending to return for another hearing test. But, due to our move (to Port St. Lucie) date being changed, it would've meant driving 30 miles in the opposite direction and then 80 in the other direction after the test, so I cancelled and will be seeing a new ENT doc, not with Cleveland Clinic. I hope it is a much better experience. I have thought and thought about whether to be this honest, but it was for sure one of my worst medical days I've ever experienced.

Dr. villasusso was extremely rude to me. I was trying to explain to him that the exercises he recommended made me very nauseous. He stated that he "didn't care" and "didn't want to hear about that". I found him to be condescending, cold & callous. I will not be returning to him, and I'll be sure to share my experience with anyone who is considering going to Cleveland Clinic.

This was the first time I met Dr. Villasuso. I liked him immediately because he talked with me person to person and not like another patient on an assembly line.

Very happy!
