Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
LiceDoctors Educates Families
“Lice is a four letter word. No one wants to say the word, and if you do everyone is set into a panic. But it’s also part of life that affects everyone, irrespective of economic levels, and so we learned to deal with it when we called LiceDoctors to “save us.” Not only did they eradicate the buggers, but they also educated our family so we could tell others that being affected isn’t the worst thing in the world. Fleas are much more invasive, in fact! Good company and friendly and educated technicians. Taking the word “lice” off my list of four letter words now!” – Megan W. in Ames, Iowa
Wasted Hundreds of Dollars on Useless Drug Store Remedies
“I’ve been through one round of lice with our youngest daughter and spent hundreds of dollars on useless pharmaceutical treatments before I turned to LiceDoctors. I dreaded the thought of having LiceDoctors come to my home for hours of nit-picking, but knew it had to be done. After a couple hours, we discovered my husband and I had them as well, so it was a phone call that was very worth the time and money. After the technician treated us and left, we followed her all-natural follow-up plan and since that time we’ve all had clean heads. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Susan B. in Des Moines, Iowa
LiceDoctors Leaves Family Lice-Free
“My doctor husband really didn’t know what to look for so I turned to the internet to find a service that could treat us. I had read about professionals who come to your house and I found the LiceDoctors website and they sent a technician to our home within hours. She treated the two of us and checked the rest of my family. She was so thorough and within a few short hours our entire family was 100% lice free. I highly recommend them and already have to all of our friends.” – Lisa G. in South Sioux City, Nebraska
Saved the Household
“For anyone who has ever had lice in their household, you know how disruptive it can be and how long it takes to get rid of them. LiceDoctors saved our household of four children who were all infested. We were able to get right back to our life and leave behind the angst, worry and disgust we had lived with for days knowing there was an infestation in our house. I would highly recommend LiceDoctors.” – Zach D. in Le Mars, Iowa
Foster Mom of 8 Wins Battle Against Lice
“Like a lot of moms, I had been battling lice for weeks as a foster mom of 8 kids under the age of 14. We had tried everything from drugstore shampoos to covering the kids’ heads with mayonnaise, nothing seemed to work. Finally, I read on the internet about LiceDoctors. I wish I would have known about this from the beginning. After they treated my kids, I could finally relax. It’s been three weeks and not a bug in sight!” – Noreen P. in Waukee, Iowa
Experience Matters When it Comes to Lice Picking
“I was taught to be self-reliant” cried Nadine, a mom from Des Moines who has 4 children, and was literally in tears. “What is the matter with me that I can’t exterminate the lice in my kids’ hair? I grew up on a farm and we dealt with bugs in the crops all the time. Bugs do not scare me or bother me yet no matter what I do nothing works to get rid of these damn lice! My mother cannot believe that I am reaching out for professional help but I am at the end of the road in terms of alternative treatment ideas. When I think of how much money I have wasted on all of the treatments that I have tried it makes me want to cry even harder.”
This was our response to Nadine who like so many conscientious parents set high standards for themselves and then berate themselves if they can not accomplish a task: “Lice picking is not like other tasks. You really need to be trained in nitpicking so as not to leave behind even a single nit.” Why is this task so hard to accomplish if you are not trained and experienced?
- Lice have become so tough as to be resistant to chemical treatments. These products will likely be of little to no help to you.
- No matter how determined you are, this is a time-consuming task, made much more time-consuming if you’re not experienced. It requires that children sit still for very long periods of time and that you drop other tasks in order to get this one done.
- You need to be able to identify nits in the hair which requires good magnification and the ability to discern the little eggs which camouflage in the hair. Then you need to pull them down the hair shaft. If you overlook 2 nits, you can expect a re-infestation.
- This is usually not a “one and done” effort unless you have an appropriate follow-up plan.
- Lice bugs race around the hair so you need to either have a strategy to slow them down so you can pull them out or figure out a away to kill them on the head.
- How are you going to check and treat yourself? Lice have to be removed from everyone’s head or you will keep passing it around the house.
- The more you do it, the better you get. That is why LiceDoctors’ technicians who experienced and come armed with our physician-developed treatment plan get rid of lice infestations in every client.
