People Who Love Independence Anesthesia Services


You are a miracle worker, talented beyond my ability to describe.  This has been the best assignment in my 11 year career.  Your tireless help has made this the best 2 months I could imagine.   They let me do all the nerve blocks here.

I just got home to find an awesome package of chocolates, cherries & nuts on my porch! What a lovely surprise! Thanks to all of you for all the care you have provided to me in this difficult year. It seems a little strange that people I have not met face to face should have such a positive impact on my life, but that’s the special ness of you & your staff. I know there is always a kind, helpful voice on the phone. First Anna (who I miss) & now Whitney (who I greatly appreciate) are such great liaisons. I’m so thankful for ALL their help! They are a great reflection of your company voice! Thank you for all you do! I feel most fortunate to have found y’all to assist with my LT adventures! May 2018 be a great year for all of us!


IAS is a first-class company! They are very quick in reimbursing for licenses and sending my payroll electronically. IAS is a combination of the best of what other agencies offer rolled into one!

I wanted to share something with you about Miriam’s dedication & concern for her Locums CRNAS. This past week I was on assignment. Early Monday morning weather forecasts for Tuesday were predicting 6-10 inches of snow.. I notified Miriam on Monday of the forecasts as I was very concerned with driving home Tuesday evening through the storm. Miriam was immediately attempting to get me off for the Day or see if I could work a partial day on Tuesday. Unfortunately, the facility was extremely short staffed and had a full OR schedule. Miriam kept in touch with me throughout Tuesday checking on the weather & my concerns with driving home. Although I stayed the full day & drove home through a horrible storm, it was very comforting for me to know Miriam was empathetic to my situation. In addition, she asked me to text her when I arrived at my house. I felt like a family member was with me all day, looking out for my safety & best interests. Job Well Done Miriam! Greatly appreciated!

IAS has provided my group with quality professionals who arrive on assignment ready to work. They are very organized and provided full credentialing information to our hospital. Secondly, I was highly impressed with their availability in the office. There were many occasions when I needed to speak with them after hours, and they were there to assist me. I wish their firm great success as they continue to grow.

I am writing on behalf of Independence Anesthesia Services. I am a CRNA and have worked with a multitude of staffing agencies in the health care industry over my 30-year career. It is my personal and professional opinion that Independence Anesthesia is an outstanding and unparalleled agency. I was initially impressed with the staff’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor when joining in November 2011. After almost 2 years, they continue to demonstrate all these qualities and more.

Donny handles my current locum tenens assignment. Not only is he committed to my professional needs, but he also strives to keep the facility satisfied with our services. He has a relentless perseverance which consistently makes everyone happy.

The group at Independence Anesthesia is highly efficient in communication. Their response to my phone calls and emails are always immediate. They are diligent and helpful with the initial and ongoing credentialing process. They go above and beyond their call of duty to tackle this complex process in a timely manner.

I heartily endorse the entire team. They are reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat.

Donny, I never got back with you on this inventory list. I love it! This is perfect and will make it so much easier for me to keep up with. I just have to tell you that I have worked with many locum and staffing companies, and you are by far the best that I have ever worked with. You are efficient and so helpful when it comes to crossing through the maze of credentialing at facilities. I just wanted to let you know that we are all just so impressed with the job you are doing. I would like for you to forward this to whoever your supervisor, boss, etc. is because you are securing business from our company for a long time to come. We love you and I would not dream of using anyone else to help us staff our facilities.
