Client Lice Treatment Testimonials
A Big Thank You to LiceDoctors
“I just want to send you a huge thank you for your service! LiceDoctors is the best service. You came to us at a low point amidst hysteria and were a calming force. We love your all natural approach.” – The G. Family in Gary, Indiana
Mom Refers Classmates to LiceDoctors
“When my daughter got head lice I felt powerless. I looked up head lice treatments on the Internet and all I got was conflicting advice. Other kids in the class were also found to have lice and all of the other parents were in the same boat. Luckily for us, one mom knew about LiceDoctors and told us all to call you. Great move. Lucky us…we are all lice-free thanks to you!” Donna S. in Merrillville, Indiana
LiceDoctors Process Actually Works!
“Finally, we found a treatment that works! I can’t believe it. It is ironic that after weeks of using those strong chemicals, what finally worked was LiceDoctors natural and benign and gentle treatment. What were we thinking going the route that we went first? I will never know. Since I cannot undo that, all I can do is tell others not to make the mistake we made. Go directly to LiceDoctors if you want something that really works.” – Anna J. in St. John, Indiana
“I would recommend the LiceDoctors services to everyone. Thanks to you all for doing such a complete and outstanding job. We feel like a giant load has been lifted off of our lice-weary shoulders!” – Brent R. in Portage, IN
Excellent Service and Good Value
“I have to be honest, when I learned that my daughters had head lice, I was embarrassed and ashamed. I thought I had somehow failed as a parent. When I called the doctor, she advised me to call LiceDoctors. When the technician, Kerry, arrived she assured me that lice are commonplace and that it is not a big deal. I felt so much better just hearing her reassuring words. Sure enough, it was not a big deal. Two hours later, she left and we have been lice-free and stress-free since. The whole process costs less than what my friend paid for lice shampoos that didn’t even work! Thank you for the excellent service.” – Kate W. in Hammond, Indiana
Kids Have Lice? Moms Beware.
Lara who is a mother of two boys and a girl in Hammond found lice on all three of her kids. She did what some of her friends had done; she drove to the drugstore and picked up boxes of lice pesticide. She carefully applied chemicals to her kids’ heads and tried combing. Much to her chagrin, a few days later she saw a live louse climb off of her son’s head. She went back to the start and reapplied more chemicals. Same thing happened. At this point, she was frustrated and disgusted enough to call the pediatrician who suggested that she call LiceDoctors.
When we arrived at her home we checked all three of the children. On the daughter we found several nits and a few bugs and on the sons we found some remaining nits and one bug each. We were not surprised by this as we have treated many families for whom the lice treatments have not worked. The lice are very resilient today and often withstand chemical treatments. Eggs (nits) have a permanently hard exterior which repels chemicals.
The big surprise to Lara was the extent of the lice infestation in her head. Above you can see a photo of the lice and nits that our technician extracted from Lara’s hair with two swipes of the LiceDoctors’ comb. Lara had a pretty significant infestation and had no symptoms whatsoever.
In most cases, we find lice in the moms of infested children. Dads are usually free of lice because their hair is typically shorter and therefore harder for the lice to find and because lice do not like testosterone. Moms are not so fortunate. In approximately 75% of the families we treat, if the children have lice the mom has lice. As moms we are in close contact with our children and head lice are transmitted through direct head to head contact.
It is challenging enough for parents to eradicate lice in their children’s hair, but it is next to impossible to treat yourself for head lice. It is obviously difficult to find lice on your own head especially in the back of the head. If you find lice in your family, give LiceDoctors a call in Northwest Indiana at 219-392-4242. Our expert lice technicians will take the burden of lice removal off of you and leave your family lice-free!
