Dr. David Cumes
AboutDavid Cumes, M.D. was born in South Africa and received his medical training in Johannesburg. Specializing in urology, he has taught at Stanford Medical Center, has published extensively in professional journals and currently has a private practice in Santa Barbara, California. He is a Western trained surgeon steeped in the allopathic paradigm of medicine and he is also a healer. Dr Cumes also practices as a sangoma (medicine man) and regularly returns to South Africa for advanced training. He is a bridge between Western medicine and indigenous healing wisdom.
I have had the honor to host Dr. Cumes. We have had several workshops and he is amazing! In addition to his vast knowledge he is absolutely the most humble person I have ever met.
