Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
I’d recommend LiceDoctors to anyone
“No one wants to speak about head lice, but when we get it, including the entire family, we’ll do anything to get rid of it. LiceDoctors was amazing, professional and attentive. We needed a visit to our home by their technicians who worked on each of the kids, and it turns out my husband and I were infested, too. The technician was courteous, and gave us a lot of information to keep us lice-free. I’d recommend them to anyone. And they use discretion in their visits!”

Deloused in 2.5 hours…money well spent!
“Louisa came to our house same day service and got my family of 4 deloused in 2 1/2 hours. She was professional courteous and clean. She kept my kids 6 & 4 entertained and was able to comb each of their hair out for 20-30 minutes without complaints. We were cleaned, educated and empowered to finish the follow up ourselves. Definitely money well spent!”

Well worth peace of mind
“I used LiceDoctors on Oct 3, 2014. I discovered my daughter had lice the previous evening and treated her with the over the counter medication. It seemed to kill the lice but the next morning, I still found nits in her hair. She has really long, thick hair so I was very frustrated at trying to get the nits out. I remembered hearing about LiceDoctors from an article I had read in the past. I called them up and they were able to schedule a professional to come to my home that day. Stacey came and immediately put us at ease. She spent the better part of an hour methodically and meticulously going through my daughter’s hair removing lice and nits. There weren’t many bugs left (and the ones that were there were dead) but I did miss a lot of the nits. Stacey then checked the rest of the family and thankfully, we were ok. She completed the treatment of my daughter and gave us specific follow up instructions for us to follow over the next 3 weeks. It was pricey, but as far as I’m concerned, well worth the peace of mind knowing that the lice was removed and is being effectively treated. I like that they have a 100% guarantee. I would recommend their services to everyone! Thank you!!!!!!”

Lice the worst; LiceDoctors the best
“LICE is the worst experience ever but LiceDoctors was the best. They walked in professionally and took over and rid my daughter’s head of lice for this episode. Let’s hope I don’t need them again, but they are on speed dial in case.”

LiceDoctors helped after drug store lice remedy failed
“LiceDoctors really helped me out. I had been itchy for a couple of weeks but since I don’t have kids, it didn’t occur to me that I might have lice. By the time, I saw a bug, I had a pretty bad infestation. I tried a drug store shampoo but that didn’t work at all. Finally, my boss told me about LiceDoctors. Elizabeth took care of me and I immediately felt better. Since I live by myself, I honestly do not know what I would have done to get rid of all of the nits. It was money really well spent and I have since recommended LiceDoctors to two families I know.

Education puts client and family at ease
“From the moment I contacted LiceDoctors I knew that my family was in competent hands! They answered all of my questions and assured me that LiceDoctors would be able to come to my house that very day!! Well, both of my daughters were treated so well by Cindy!! She explained exactly what she would be doing which put us all at ease! That meant so much to me as I didn’t want my girls to be anxious about the whole situation..I would highly recommend LiceDoctors–well worth the price to be in caring, expert hands!!” Linda F. in Westchester, NY.

Which is the Most Likely Way to Transmit Lice?
Here is a little quiz: in which scenario are you must likely to contract a case of lice?
A. Using a hair brush that belongs to someone with an active case of head lice
B. Sitting on a couch next to a person with an active infestation
C. Sharing a hat or helmet with someone who has head lice
A group of girls from New York was doing a health project on head lice for school. They could not agree on the most common means of sharing head lice. There is a definitive answer to this question and the answer is (drum roll….) letter B. By far the primary conduit for passing along head lice is head to head contact.
Now this does not mean that you can not pick up a case of lice using some else’s hair brush or cap, but these means are less common. Why is that? Haven’t you always been told NOT to share hair brushes or hats or anything else that goes near the hair?
We are not advocating that you wear caps that belong to a friend who has a lice infestation. What we are saying is that it is far more likely that a bug will move from one head directly onto another head. Lice do not like to hang out on hats, helmets, or brushes because there is no food (blood) for them and they need human temperature to exist. Lice are very crafty; that is why they have managed to thrive around the world for millions of years. They take the most direct route to another head when they get too crowded on head number one; that route is obviously directly to your hair which they use as a ladder to get to your head.
Some ways that you can deter the spread of lice are to put some kind of protective barrier on the hair like hair gel, mousse, or spray. This will make it a little more challenging for the lice to cling onto the hair. If you are anywhere in New York State and you find that you have head lice, call LiceDoctors at 800-224-2537 and we will be come to your home at a time that is convenient for you and we will eradicate the lice. Whether you are in Buffalo or Brooklyn; Syracuse, Suffolk County, Spring Valley, or Schenectady; Manhattan, Manhasset, or Mamaroneck, LiceDoctors will take the burden of lice removal from you and help you to return to your normal routine. We guarantee it!
