Dr. Villasuso was very focused and professional. He uncovered the genesis of my pain and loss of hearing was a Qtip Swab that dislodged in my ear canal. He removed it and admonished me not to use Qtips. if I needed help cleaning my ears, I should make an appointment with the Clinic.

After almost 2 years of bizarre and disabling symptoms (constant vertigo being the main one) and going to different providers without success I was finally seen by Dr. Villasuso. He got my diagnosis right in a matter of minutes. I cannot be thankful enough to him, the whole team, and my neurologist for giving me my life back. It takes some time to see him the first time for he is so busy, but the wait it's absolutely worth it. And he is very kind and funny, which is always a plus. Totally recommend him.

was upset as I had a regular appointment but the doctor was on call and he didn't come back before my second appointment of the day also with Cleveland clinics. doctors offices should not make appointments when they are on call with the hospital. I waited for over N hour before I left the office

Reviewed on Mar 9, 2021

The appointment was a referral and I was told he had a specialty in tinnitus. Within the first 5 minutes he asked me if I had googled tinnitus. I said yes and he said well then you know there is nothing I can do. I of course know there is no cure. I was only expecting some ideas on how to better habituate, maybe new clinical trials or something. He did mention seeing a psychiatrist or psychologist which I am going to do. and there were a few more things listed in the follow up notes that he didn't mention to me during the visit. Thankfully I had 2 other appointments and didn't drive 2+ hours for just his visit. My Executive Health visit and my cardiology and neurology visits were outstanding and 5 star all the way! This was truly an outlier. I also rarely complete surveys and am only doing this one in the spirit of ensuring that every patient going to the Cleveland Clinic has an outstanding experience. I already provided this feedback to Dr. Piloto btw. I will certainly be back for another Executive Health physical and will still highly recommend the Cleveland Clinic to others.

He is brilliant and on the top of his profession. After 5 1/2 months dealing with another ENT, Dr Villasuso was able to give me a diagnosis, a treatment plan and he assured me that I did not need surgery, which the other doctors were quick to suggest as they couldn't figure out the reasons for my problem. He knew almost instantaneously how to treat me. He's wonderful!!! He was also able to connect me with another CC doctor to work in tandem to solve my condition.

All very easy. called with a question for Dr. Vilasusa or staff, a Tele/medicine visit was immediately set up. No problem at all.

Dr. Vilasusa has been a life saver for me. rather than "giving up" up because some symptoms were/are atypical he continued to evaluate. has prescribed Med once treatments of great help, has prescribed therapy which was even more help than I realized at the time, has advised of a couple of treatments to resolve specific known issues and continues to evaluate. Also, as I am stuck out of town due to Covid, Dr. Vilasusa recommended a couple of facilities where I should get some evaluations done now. Very excellent.
