Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
“Thank you so much for your flexibility in securing a technician to come to our home so quickly. I realize that we called late in the day and I was very impressed with your responsiveness. As a medical doctor, I know how important it is to help patients in need and we were certainly in need! As a doctor, I knew enough to know that the pediculicides are often not effective, but I did not know enough about how to actually get rid of the case. Your technician was quite an expert on the topic and was very confident and composed on the job. She really put us at ease. Thanks again to LiceDoctors.”

“Though our family had made it through preschool, elementary, middle school and high school without our daughter ever catching lice…she brought it home from college during her first Thanksgiving break this year. Our family initially treated with an over-the-counter lice medication. But, as this was our first experience with lice, I went on-line to find out as much as I could about how to effectively get rid of it. Researching the issue was informative, but also confusing in some ways as there are a wide variety of approaches. I decided to go with a professional and chose LiceDoctors. This was some of the best money I spent in 2014. Margaret Bing was our LiceDoctor technician and she was fantastic. Margaret walked in the door and immediately started treating the lice and educating us. The solid information she shared really helped lessen our anxiety. (Nothing like having little bugs playing house on your head to raise your blood pressure!) Our son has high-functioning autism and Margaret was very calm and supportive during his treatment. Even our pug loved her! It’s not inexpensive, but I thought it was absolutely worth the money. I would recommend LiceDoctors and Margaret Bing to anyone who wants to get rid of their lice and have some peace of mind.”

“Kim was wonderful! She came to our home and gave us great service. She was very kind and patient when working with my daughter. She helped us through a difficult experience. I highly recommend Lice Doctors.”

“Daughter has been sent home from school after nits were found in her hair. LiceDoctors had a tech out to us promptly. She was professional and efficient. She made short work of what was a daunting and tedious task that we were not able to complete successfully on our own. We have our daughter clear of lice nits and we got good advice on keeping it that way.”

“We have used Lice Doctor’s services twice now, and the service has been excellent. Both times they were able to send a technician (Kelly) to our house within a few hours. Kelly really knows her stuff. She was great with the kids, and ensured we knew what to do for the follow up treatment. She even gave me her card and was sure to write down that she had treated our daughter so that we could take it to the school with us. Although I hope we never have a need for these services in the future, it’s great to know that they are here and can be at our house in a matter of hours.”

“LiceDoctors was such a great company! There was a lice outbreak at my daughters school and they came out and checked the whole family. They were extremely professional and much more affordable than other companies. The representative used products that were very safe and the follow up treatment was extremely easy to do at home. No one in our family had live lice thanks to the LiceDoctors! They made my daughter feel very comfortable as they checked her out and removed the few nits that she likely got from a friend related to the source of the outbreak. She was even able to return to school the very next day despite her school’s extremely strict no nit policy. Thanks LiceDoctors you guys were great and I’ll definitely be recommending you to anyone who may need your services in the future.”

“Hello, My name is Stella. My household recently had to deal with lice. I placed a call to 4 places. LiceDoctors was the only business to promptly and sufficiently take care of me. Natasha was very kind and answered all my concerns. I had no idea what to expect. Amy was the professional technician that came to my house. She was very kind (but firm) in the process of showing me and my daughter how to take care of our problem. She walked us through the entire process of what she was doing, why she was doing it, etc. I felt no shame or embarrassment like I thought I was going to. She was quick but thorough. We are following our treatment plan that was given to us. Thank you everyone for being so quick to answer the phone, answering my multiple and sometimes duplicate questions with professionalism and care. I will highly recommend LiceDoctors and Amy to all my family and friends if they should ever need this type of service.”
Stella H. Sacramento, California, Google Plus 5 stars
“They were a life saver! Well worth the cost as my time is very valuable to me. Don’t waste your money on products that don’t work. The all natural approach was so comforting. I realize that the quick fixes are harsh chemical ridden products that I don’t want to use on my family. Love the guarantee and 18 years of successfully treating families. The response time is amazingly fast!”
Laura C. in West Covina, CA., Google Plus 5 stars
“Calling LiceDoctors was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They saved me from a task that was onerous and that I very honestly could not accomplish especially on myself. Jennifer, who answered the phone, was solicitous and able to answer all of my questions. She dispatched a very knowledgeable technician, Perri, to us right away and we are now a month later still in excellent shape. No more bugs, no more eggs, no more anxiety. Mission accomplished thanks to LiceDoctors and the price is reasonable especially for what they do.”

Why Do-It-Yourself Lice Treatments Often Fail
It seems today that there is a service for almost everything. Need to organize your drawers? Call in a home organizer. Need help choosing clothes? Call a personal shopper. The list goes on and on. Some of these services may seem frivolous but one service is not only the most efficient solution, it can also be the most economical answer and that is California’s LiceDoctors professional lice treatment service.
Why not just buy a drugstore remedy, apply it, comb, and be done with it? The reason is most of the time they do not work. It is very simple. Head lice have mutated and become resistant to many of the chemicals. In addition, the eggs have a very rigid shell which do not allow chemicals to seep through to kill the baby bug that is inside. We get calls from parents all over California who are extremely frustrated because they have tackled this challenge on their own and have been unable to get rid of the head lice.
Not only have they wasted their time combing and picking only to find more eggs and lice in the hair a couple of days or weeks later, but they’ve also wasted a lot of money on products that claim to eliminate lice, but in reality fail to do so. Sometimes their do-it-yourself treatment includes visits to the doctors’ office to get prescription shampoos that cost $300 and promise 60% efficacy and then fail.
Then there is the problem that parents are not trained to identify lice and nits. Lice are very small and run away from the light when you move the hair, therefore they may be quite elusive. In addition the nits or eggs have a translucent shell which allow them to blend into the hair, making it very difficult for an untrained person to find them in the hair. In addition, if you find them in the hair, since nits are glued to the hair shaft, it can be very time-consuming and cumbersome to detach and remove the nits if you are not experienced in doing that. Note if you leave even a couple of nits in the hair, they will hatch and eventually reproduce.
Do-it-yourself treatments often result in children missing days of school because they are not able to be admitted by the school nurse. This may result in days of missed work and lost income for parents. In addition, loads of laundry are done unnecessarily, clothes are sent to the dry cleaners for no reason, and combs and other hair accessories may be thrown out, which will not help to get rid of the head lice. Head lice only live off of the head for a day so there is little to no need to focus on the environment.
A do-it-yourself course of lice treatment can be very frustrating for parents and annoying and upsetting for children. At LiceDoctors, we often arrive at homes of families who are burnt out from the effort of trying to tackle this overwhelming problem. We have nearly 20 years experience in the field and have treated well over 100,000 clients. LiceDoctors has intensively trained technicians and a medical doctor on staff. This is what we do all day, every day and we truly know how to get rid of the lice problem quickly and affordably.
Why put yourself through the costs and torture of do-it-yourself treatments when LiceDoctors guarantees that we will eradicate your lice infestation. The service comes to your home in California and does what do-it-yourself treatments often fail to do…get rid of this head lice once and for all.
