Why choose LiceDoctors in Oakland or Berkeley?

We have the most effective head lice removal at the best price!

Our doctor-developed protocol has been eliminating lice from heads for over 20 years. Dr. Stephen Beck, our Medical Director, saw the need for a chemical-free lice treatment as the traditional treatments were failing to eradicate head lice on his patients. After exhaustive research on head lice and their life cycle, Dr. Beck developed a lice treatment protocol that works every time with no risk of side effects.

The evidence of our success is plain when you note that we have a 99.6% success rate with over 500,000 heads treated! We also have a 100% guarantee that your family will be completely head lice free or we will return to help you (this rarely happens).

You can feel confident that we will get the job done completely, and that you are safe from the nasty chemical pesticides that are used in many treatment methods. Pesticides have little efficacy any longer, as head lice have become resistant to them due to many decades of use. Our natural protocol can be used on every member of the family, including babies and pregnant mothers safely – while working far better than those toxic chemicals.

Your technician will arrive discreetly in an unmarked vehicle and begin treatment within hours (maybe even minutes!) of calling us. After she treats your Oakland or Berkeley family you will be lice-free and safe to go back to your busy life. Treatments are available day and night every day of the year.

LiceDoctors eradicates head lice for less!

  • A LiceDoctors technician will show up and treat your family for the first hour for only $199 which includes up to 50 miles of travel each way from the technician’s home.
  • Continued treatment for the whole family is billed at $24.75 per 15 minutes (or $99 per hour).
  • A family of four averages $300-$400 – usually taking about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Factors determining length of stay are severity of the infestation, how many people have lice, and the type of hair being treated.

San Mateo and Burlingame FAQs

No, they don’t. The head lice that humans carry have claws specifically designed to only attach to human hair. Head lice cannot attach to your cat or dog or hamster or parakeet. Treating the humans in your Oakland or Berkeley home is all you need to do; the pets will be fine.
First, take a deep breath. Human head lice do not carry any diseases and are easily treatable, so if you do have them, LiceDoctors in Oakland, or Berkeley can make sure they are removed and stay gone for good. However, head lice are not the only thing that can make your head itch. Here are just a few things that can imitate a case of head lice: 1. Dry scalp from switching to new shampoo or laundry detergent, or even just very dry weather can desiccate your skin and make it itch. 2. Treating for head lice, especially with chemicals or pesticides (but even just excessive combing) can seriously irritate the skin of your head, making it itch. 3. Thinking about lice.  Honestly – just thinking about head lice can make your skin crawl and your head itch uncontrollably. It even sets up a chain reaction where the more you scratch, the more it itches and the more you want to scratch some more.  If your doctor has said that you do not have head lice, there is a very good chance that he or she is correct. Try taking a break from all new products, treatments and combing to see if the itching calms down. Having said that, most physicians are not lice doctors, in that they don’t study head lice in medical school or have the time and patience to go through every strand of hair on your head. If you are still concerned, reach out to us. LiceDoctors makes house calls in Oakland and Berkeley – we’re happy to give you a second opinion!
Lice would actually rather find clean hair than dirty hair. The oilier the hair, the more difficult it is for the louse to grab and climb up to get food(which is your blood). And understand that head lice only crawl, they don’t jump or fly. All they can do is crawl from one person’s head to another person’s looking for food and warmth of the human scalp.  LiceDoctors can eliminate these parasites from your Oakland or Berkeley family.

Client Testimonials

  • “Some jobs are really better left to a professional. I’m not saying this is brain surgery, but it requires a level of expertise that I didn’t have. I tried and failed so I finally called the LiceDoctors and they were truly experts. It was money well spent!” Ying Yue H. in Berkeley, California

  • “We literally had our suitcases packed and ready to go when I found head lice on my daughter two days before our flight. Ughh. She was not happy and I was not happy. I also didn’t have time to mess around with treatments that I heard usually don’t work. I decided to skip those chemicals and went online for professional service. I called around and LiceDoctors was the least expensive and had the most experience. I love that they made house calls. The total experience was very positive and I think they did a super job.” Ani E. in Oakland, California

  • “Thank you very much, LiceDoctors, for your prompt and professional service. I have used many different service companies over the years, and I must call out LiceDoctors for the excellent work they did when they helped my family deal with a lice problem. From my first look at their informative Website, to speaking on the phone with their representative, to the actual visit from their technician to our home, everything about the experience was top-notch and professional.” Jason Piedmont, CA.
