Client Lice Treatment Testimonials
House Call Helped So Much
“I am so grateful to LiceDoctors. Madelyn made the whole experience so easy for us. The fact that she made a house call to our apartment was worth so much to us. We were in no shape to be traveling around the city. Then she was so kind and professional. She calmed us all down and inspired confidence in the LiceDoctors lice removal treatment from the minute she walked in our door. Thank you to LiceDoctors for doing such an awesome job.” – Anne, Rebecca, Emily, and Sarah G. in Manhattan, NY
Thorough, Patient, and Explained Everything
When I realized my daughter may have lice, I did not know where to begin. Thank God for LiceDoctors. I made a call and that evening, Louisa was in my house.

Efficient and Affordable
“I just got off the treadmill and a saw a bug on the bathroom sink. I almost passed out. I put it in a plastic bag and went online. I thought I had bed bugs but it was a louse. Actually, I felt much better. I’d rather have lice than bed bugs. I called my neighbor who hooked me up with LiceDoctors. It turned out to be a mild case. I nipped it in the bud. Thanks LiceDoctors for being efficient and affordable. Great Job! I have called all my friends to tell them about you just in case…” – Cassie Y. in NYC
Kids Admitted to School Day After Treatment
“My kids go to a private school that has a very strict lice policy. I tried to get rid of the lice myself but the nurse would not let them in. This went on for two days and they could not afford to miss anymore school. I did some research and found LiceDoctors. Well the nurse admitted them the next day as promised. Suffice to say this was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this service.” – Peter C. in New York, NY
How to Get Rid of Lice
Unfortunately there is no primer for this or any quick and easy solution to getting rid of head lice. We can tell you this much: being efficient and thorough in getting rid of lice takes time and is a skill that is honed with a lot of practice.
There are variety of reasons why the more you nitpick, the better you get. One reason is that you need some sort of strategy to slow down the lice. The bugs are very crafty and very speedy and they will evade you before you can blink an eye.
The eggs (nits) are very challenging to identify in the hair. They are brownish and blend in with the hair. They may be very small if recently laid making them hard harder to see. It can be difficult for inexperienced eyes to distinguish among a lice egg, dandruff, and a DEC plug. Even if you can identify them, the nits are glued to the hair shaft and you must have the dexterity to pull them off of the hair.
Adding to the challenge of extracting the eggs (nits) is the fact that you have to get every one of them out of the hair. You can’t be “sort of” done head lice. Either they are all out, or you still have more work to do. This is where many people fall short and certainly the chemicals do not accomplish this task adequately.
In addition, a professional has the proper tools to complete the job. A cheap plastic comb will not get all the nits out. In addition, you need adequate lighting and you need an appropriate follow-up plan to ensure that there will not be a re-infestation. Also it is helpful for you to know what you need to do and not do with the home so that you can allocate your time efficiently. (Hint: Do not spend a lot of time on the apartment. Lice will die when off the head for a day. Never spray lice treatment chemicals in your home. They are toxic and ineffective.)
Your lice technician will come to your Manhattan home to make the process as easy as possible for you. No shlepping your kids to a salon!
