Dr. Abigail Adams, MD, FACEP
Owner, Botox Injector & Laser Physician
Dr. Adams cares deeply about her community and founded The Med Spa of New Smyrna Beach in 2013 to provide a safe and ethical environment for aesthetic treatments in the area. She has had advanced training in Aesthetic Medicine and provides non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments through the use of medical cosmeceuticals, neuromodulators and laser technology. What started as a side gig in the back of her husband’s dental office, soon became New Smyrna Beach’s first medical spa and since has won awards for “Best of the Best Med Spa” in the Daytona Beach News Journal in 2022 and Hometown News “Reader’s Choice” in 2021 as well as becoming a Top 2% Allergan injectable provider in the nation.
Motivated by improving the lives of others, this ER doctor turned aesthetic medicine expert knows that her staff is her “superpower” and attributes much of the practice’s success and growth to her dedicated team. Her mission is to provide the most exclusive, science-driven treatments by a team of highly trained and compassionate individuals who will be a shining light for each other and those patients seeking results and confidence.
Why did Dr Adams start Get Fit NSB?
As an ER doctor, she has had a front row seat so to speak as to the dangerous and oftentimes fatal consequences of a poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle which is why she is now offering weight loss services at The Med Spa utilizing both of her degrees in Medicine and Nutrition in order to empower people to live their best, healthiest life. Health and wellness has alway been a priority for Dr Adams. In high school, she was a 4 sport athlete earning many achievements in athletics and academics. In college, she served as a nutritional counselor to the HIV/AIDS population at an inner city Lansing clinic. She was also involved in many research projects at MSU in the dietetics and nutritional science lab under the direction of Dr Lorraine Weatherspoon. Her research was focused on diabetes in children as well as the effects of certain “hunger” hormones on rats.
Although oftentimes challenging and stressful, serving this community in the ER for the last 12 years has been extremely rewarding and some of the proudest moments of her life. She has taken care of thousands of patients and families on some of the worst days of their lives. She may have lost some sleep, missed some ballgames and holidays with her kids but has no regrets and is blessed to be able to take on this new medical weight loss venture to help others optimize their own health so they can avoid the Emergency Department!
Medical Journey and Dedication
Dr Adams was inspired to go medical school by her late father, who was a volunteer paramedic in rural Michigan where she was born and raised. As a senior in high school, she was one of 10 students in the nation accepted early into medical school at Michigan State University where she graduated with a BS in Nutritional Sciences as well as earning her MD. She completed her residency at Palmetto Health in Columbia, SC and is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine. In 2002, she met and soon married NSB native, Dr Ben Adams DDS, and they chose to come back to this quiet little beach town to serve the community where they live with their 3 children surrounded by amazing friends and family. After 15 years of service, Dr Adams officially retired from the Emergency Department in March of 2022 somewhat “due to Covid” but mostly to dedicate all of her time to her family as well as The Med Spa and advancing her skillset as a laser physician.
