“My name is Lindsey Beakley and I’m a breast surgical oncologist. I joined Southern Cancer Center in 2022.
I am from Mandeville, Louisiana originally. I am one of two, I have a younger brother. He is actually a physician as well. We’re a close-knit family, I really enjoy spending time with my parents. I enjoy going to the gym. I’m a skier, not the best skier, but a skier. In July of last year, I became a certified diver. I have two dogs and I spend a lot of time with them, a lot of time with them, in the backyard playing and going on walks and runs.
Treating breast cancer is not a one physician job, it is a multidisciplinary team. I am a breast surgeon so I will be involved in their surgical care, but what I tell all the patients is that this is home base. We are going to, yes be performing their surgical procedure, but we also coordinate for them all of their pre-surgery imaging. When they do need to see the medical oncologist and the radiation oncologist, we set up the appointments for them. For any questions that they have when it comes to genetic testing, ‘where do I need to go next’, if there’s any question, any concern they call me.
Basically I’m an open book and anything that they want to ask me is fair game, because I do think it’s so important to trust the person who is taking care of you. So I really want them to know how much I incorporate them as a part of my extended family and I want them to feel like I’m a part of theirs.
What I stress the most is that they’re gonna be okay. They’re getting ready to embark on a journey which is going to take some time, and it’s going to have some ups and down, but at the end of the day we’re here to help them and their family in any way that we can, and everything is going to be alright.”
Dr. Beakley is hands down the best doctor I have ever had! I would drive 10 hours to see her. She cares for each patient and you always feel as though you are the only patient she has for that day. She is so thorough in explaining everything.

Dr. Beakley is one of the most thoughtful and caring physicians that I have ever met. I am so thankful that I chose her to be my surgeon. She has been there for me during this journey, always able to answer all my questions and comfort me with all my fears of my outcome. Thank you again Dr. Beakley for all that you do!
