The day finally came that I had dreaded... Lice! We discovered our unwanted guests late on a Saturday night and immediately fell into panic. I was so relieved to see that a 7:30 am call the next day had Sean at our door not too much later. He took great care of us and made sure to educate me along the way, too. Thanks so much! I will be able to sleep well tonight! Do not hesitate to call LiceDoctors. You won't regret it!

I'm so grateful for this company! I called them on a Friday morning in a panic, and a technician arrived a few hours later (amid the threat of a winter weather event, too). She treated everyone in the family and found things that I had missed on the kids. I could barely see the stuff she was easily able to spot. I also love that they used olive oil, because I'm 8 months pregnant and don't need a bunch of chemicals around me.
