Meet The Doctor
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.
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.
Dr. Adam’s favorite Med Spa product:
“Almost all of my patients want to improve the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles under their eyes, and Skinmedica’s Instant Bright Eye Cream with the eye mask is the powerful duo that will instantly do it! I am in love with the weekly eye masks that help to continually reduce the visible signs of aging and fatigue. This product added to laser skin resurfacing under the eyes is the secret. Injectables and lasers will only do so much, you MUST protect your investment with quality skincare. I sound like a broken record.”
Dr. Adam’s favorite Med Spa & Get Fit NSB service:
The 8 week Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Program
“A short course of the injectable appetite suppressant, semaglutide, combined with weekly nutritional counseling, accountability Fit 3D scans, B12 w/MIC and MOST importantly muscle building with weekly training sessions to increase your metabolism will truly change your life forever and the weight will stay off. Stop the yoyo cycle and build better habits for good.”
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!

Cari’s favorite Med Spa product:
“I love Skinmedica’s Total Defense & Repair. It is not just sunscreen. TD&R protects against UVA & UVB but also against damaging infrared light. It has a powerful blend of antioxidants that not only protect the skin but shows improvement in aging skin. I use it every day before leaving the house to make sure I’m protected. The consistency is perfect for a sunscreen and goes on very sheer. If you’re looking for great protection, that also fights signs of aging and wrinkles, then this is the superstar sunscreen! “

Shelby’s favorite Med Spa Product:
“Being raised in NSB and spending most of my time on the boat or at the beach has left me with many years of sun damage. I love that Lytera 2.0 addresses all pathways of pigmentation while revitalizing my tired and dull skin.”
Shelby’s favorite Med Spa Service:
“Hands Down, microneedling! It is a safe and effective treatment that can be used to reduce acne scars, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. One of the main reasons I love it is because there’s no downtime. Sure, you might need to spend a couple of days doing some aftercare, but it’s no different from healing from a sunburn. Not only does it help with collagen production, but it also allows your favorite anti-aging products to better seep into your skin. Whether it’s wrinkle prevention or hyperpigmentation that concerns you, microneedling has been shown to provide benefits for both.”
