Janet Sayer, CRNA

Contact Information


I am a CRNA with 28+ years of experience administering anesthesia in a variety of settings. My goal is to provide anesthesia on an as needed basis. I am the owner of JDS Anesthesia, LLC and co-owner of Sayer & Soileau Anesthesia, LLC.


I have experience in a variety of settings including hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers as well as in the office setting. I am able to work both in the team care approach and autonomously as an anesthesia provider. The majority of my career has been working solo but I am comfortable in both situations. I provide anesthesia to a variety of patient populations from pediatrics to geriatrics and those with a higher acuity level. I have administered different types of anesthesia including general, MAC, TIVA, blocks, spinals and epidurals.


  • September 2016 to present: coordinate and provide coverage at a variety of facilities experiencing a need for anesthesia coverage.
  • August 2002 to present: I work independently on an as needed basis at various facilities. Cases include ENT, General Surgery, Orthopedics, GU, OB/GYN, GI, Dental Restoration, Oral Surgery and Plastics.
  • 1998-2004 I provided anesthesia at Central La Ambulatory Surgery Center in Alexandria on a regular basis.
  • June 1994-August 2002: I was employed as a staff CRNA at Huey P Long Hospital in Pineville, LA. I worked in a mostly independent setting with the same types of cases as above. I also worked on a locum tenens basis at other facilities at this time. I was also the coordinator for the students rotating at the facility from CHNO/Xavier University Anesthesia Program.
