Hilary Espana

Physician Assistant

ABOUT ME:

My name is Hilary, and I am a Physician Assistant at Esthetics Center. I graduated with a Masters in PA studies from Samuel Merritt University in Oakland in 2016. I am a mom of two boys and a wife to my amazing husband, Erick. I am originally from Wisconsin and remain a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan. I am a creator at heart and a true empath. I have the innate drive to create things that make lives better, which ultimately has led me to my passion for aesthetics. I love immersing myself in nature, getting a good workout in, going for a trail run, having a good conversation, coffee dates, breweries, country music, baking, and of course, enjoying the sweet moments with my littles.

Favorite books & podcasts

The first book that came to mind during this season of my life was “The Giving Tree.” Although a children’s book, it speaks to me. Being a mom is my greatest blessing, and to me, this book is a perfect metaphor for what motherhood embodies.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB:

I love being a point of comfort for my patients. I truly enjoy connecting with people and building relationships. The plus side of my job is that I get to make people feel a little more vibrant. I also love the humans I work with. They all show up, work hard and get it done and they do it with such heart.

Experience was great. All the employees that I spoke with were beyond nice and helpful. Before my procedure the Dr. explained exactly what he would be doing and asked if I had any questions or concerns. The procedure was so fast and pain free I actually thought he was joking when he said, “thank you, you’re all done”. Definitely recommend.

FIVE STARS FOR THE BEST EXPERIENCES AT ESTHETICS CENTER!! I’ve visited The Esthetics Center a few times now and every visit has been phenomenal. The front desk staff is welcoming and timely, the office is immaculate and beautifully decorated, and Melissa has delivered such wonderful customer service as well as skilled technique and services. I have received Botox and filler and will not go anywhere else! I love this place and couldn’t recommend it enough :)

Dr. Rice was amazing. He took excellent care of me. Took his time with me explaining everything he would be doing before hand. Was gentle, caring, not in a rush and most of all made me feel comfortable. I would highly suggest him to anyone. I will definitely be going back. Oh and his team was also great.

I love the EDH Esthectics Center! Dr. Rice is a highly skilled surgeon that strives for perfection! He and his team make you feel comfortable and welcome from the moment you walk in the door. Daniel at the reception desk always greets me with a friendly “hello” and goes out of his way to accommodate my busy work schedule with multiple appointment options. Dr. Rice’s surgical assistant Tammy is very knowledgeable, warm and helpful. She provides clear instructions before and after surgical procedures and always calls you the night prior to surgery to check in and reassure any concerns. Overall, the Esthectics Center is a top notch experience whether having a surgical procedure or simply having a facial. I am a customer forever! Jessica G. Granite Bay, CA
