    / 5 Kristyna Saja for Job #224632 12215 Dosing and Administration of Benlysta Drug Chris Nichter is such a talented voiceover artist, it was a breeze to work with him and we are very happy with the result. We had a few special requests, such as calling in during the recording session, pronouncing difficult medical terminology, 24 hour turnaround on 2500 words and optional minor re-records as needed. He was very efficient and made it convenient for us to access the files since we were on a tight deadline. We will most definitely be working together again! Thank you!
