Dr. Stephen Beck is LiceDoctors’ on-staff medical director. He is a renowned physician and has over 30 years of experience as a board-certified Internist. Dr. Beck became interested in head lice when his wife, Wendy, saw a need for professional head lice services over 20 years ago. He conducted extensive research on the life cycle of head lice and emphasizes that lice treatments are most effective when the 3 stages of head lice (nit, nymph, and adult) are addressed and eliminated. As a physician and a father, Dr. Beck is committed to ensuring that families with head lice are treated thoroughly and safely.
LiceDoctors Values Community
We know that when people are in close contact to each other, if one person has head lice, it easily spreads to others. Families in shelters may be at higher risk due to their proximity to others. At LiceDoctors, we advise shelters on safe treatments and we contribute financially to shelters that house women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
Below is a list of shelters where we have contributed:
- Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center (SPARCC)–Sarasota, Florida
- Center of Hope for Women and Children–Charlotte, North Carolina
- Long Island Against Domestic Violence (LIADV)–Suffolk County, New York
- Hope Ministries–Des Moines, Iowa
- Rachel Coalition–Essex County, New Jersey
- Laura’s Home–Cleveland, Ohio
- The Family Place–Dallas, Texas
- Safe House–Denver, Colorado
We are proud of our lice technicians who give back to the community.
