Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.
To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
As of 7/30/2019, Dr. Villasuso III has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing.

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. He asked me very thoughtful questions, offered me good advice, listened to (and answered) my questions and concerns, joked with me and tried to be as exact in his estimates and opinions that he could be. Very happy!
