It has been a lot to learn, but has also been a great experience too.

What Is the Best Compliment You Have Received from an Alliance Colleague?

When I was fairly new to our facility, I felt discouraged. Dr. Growchowska expressed how much confidence she had in me and wanted to personally train me when she cared for her patients. Dr. Grochowska’s encouragement made me feel confident in learning about pain management care and supported me in my new career journey.
