Acupuncturist/faith healer buys spacious Westlake home

Dr. Issam Nemeh, who has drawn thousands to faith-healing services throughout the Cleveland area, just bought a $1.3 million home with his wife, Catherine, according to Cuyahoga County records. The 6,285-square-foot colonial in Westlake’s tony Quail Hollow development has 14 rooms, including seven bedrooms and 51/2 baths.

Nemeh, who lays hands on the suffering for free at his massively attended prayer services, charges $250 for visits at his Rocky River acupuncture office, where patients wait day and night. His service Sunday in the auditorium at HealthSpace Cleveland was continually packed for five hours.
