Naomi Dempsey, M.D., is a board-certified breast medical oncologist at Miami Cancer Institute, part of Baptist Health. She specializes in breast cancer medical oncology.
Prior to joining Miami Cancer Institute in 2023, Dr. Dempsey served as a hematologist and breast medical oncologist at the Lynn Cancer Institute where she led the breast cancer research effort.
Dr. Dempsey’s approach to care is compassionate and collaborative. She believes in evidence-based methods tailored to her breast cancer patients’ goals and priorities for their care. She gets to know the patients and their families to understand what is most important to them in their treatment journey. With this information, she creates a treatment plan that will optimize cancer outcomes while accounting for each patient’s unique needs and values.
When she is not treating patients, Dr. Dempsey enjoys spending time with her daughter Keira. She also plays the flute with the Greater Miami Symphonic Band where she serves as the principal piccolo player.
