Why Choose Us in Reading and Lebanon?

Those of us who live in the Reading and Lebanon area understand that people around this part of Pennsylvania have a long history of being self-reliant. One place where it is really difficult to be a do-it-yourselfer is when your family is facing a head lice situation. Even the most dogged of us can sometimes throw up our hands and look for help. With the recent spread of “super lice”, which are resistant to the commercially available lice shampoos and treatment chemicals, we at LiceDoctors have seen this sort of  frustration more and more often. 

LiceDoctors is a proven firm that provides in-home treatment for lice with a service that is guaranteed to work. For over 20 years and with over 500,000 people treated, we have reached a success rate of 99.6%. 

This success comes from years of consistent hard work. We built our reputation on reliability, competence, and effectiveness. Dr. Stephen Beck, who led our early research and developed the original protocol, continues as our Medical Director, providing guidance to our staff and lice technicians. Just call 717-963-2100 to ask questions or to arrange an appointment in your Reading or Lebanon area home. The call center is open from 7 AM until midnight, seven days a week. And, we are available 365 days a year. 

Your locally-based technician will arrive at the time you choose, and she will methodically examine every family member and treat those who have bugs and or nits. Compared to a lice clinic, the LiceDoctors in-home service is far less disruptive to your family’s busy schedule and less expensive.

LiceDoctors Pricing in Reading and Lebanon 

Over the years we have learned that our clients understand value, and our hourly pricing means that you pay for the time it takes the technician to do her work rather than pay a “per head” charge. Our Lebanon and Reading area clients prefer this pricing method. Here are the details:

  • The first hour, including travel of up to 50 miles, is $199.
  • After the first hour, you pay $99 an hour which is broken down into quarter hour increments of $24.75. 
  • In our experience, it usually takes a technician 2.5 or 3 hours to treat a family of four. Of course, some cases are more difficult than others, but that’s the average.
  • So, for that family of four, you would expect to pay an average of $300 or $400, much less than most lice clinics charge.

LiceDoctors in Reading and Lebanon

When you call 717-963-2100 to arrange for an in-home visit, you can be confident that your LiceDoctors technician will arrive prepared with all the necessary materials as well the experience to explain the process every step of the way. We totally know the local area from Ephrata to Myerstown and Pottsville to Emmaus. Count on LiceDoctors to put you at ease.

You will probably learn that each school district has its own policy on how to handle children with lice and their being able to attend school. Although Pennsylvania state regulations forbid schools from having “no nit” policies, the guidelines for being readmitted after treatment can vary significantly. We can help you navigate those. The school policy in Reading is that a child with live lice will not be permitted to return to class until treatment is given and no live bugs are present. Schools in Lebanon may send children home with live lice at the nurse’s discretion. Both districts allow students with nits (eggs) only to remain in school as nits are not contagious. 

Reading and Lebanon FAQs

Q. What do we have to do about cleaning up all of our linens, towels, and the kids’ toys?
A. At LiceDoctors, here in Reading and Lebanon, as well as throughout the country, we often say “it is about the head, not about the house.” In almost every instance, lice are passed from one person to another by head to head contact. Yes, it is possible, but very unlikely, that they are transmitted by a shared hat or on a piece of furniture. Lice can live off the scalp for at most 24 hours. So, we do not believe it is necessary to do a thorough cleaning of the whole house, but we do understand that it can make you feel like you’ve done everything possible to stop the lice from spreading. Your technician will leave you with aftercare instructions that are very simple to follow and apply to the head; you will not need to do anything in the house.
Q. How long does it take for a technician to get to my house after we call for an appointment?
A. We make every effort to come at the time that best suits you and your family. In most cases, we are able to make the appointment on the same day that you call. If you want to check the availability of technicians in the Reading and Lebanon area, call us at 717-963-2100, and we can easily let you know.
Q. Can males get head lice?
A. Yes. Anyone with hair can get head lice. If there is a male in your Reading or Lebanon house who is absolutely bald then he is not at risk. Also there is some evidence that lice do not like testosterone so men are less likely to have lice than women. Boys with hair, even those with buzz cuts, are eligible candidates for head lice.

Client Testimonials

  • “Thank you, LiceDoctors for bailing us out of a lice mess. We had put every toy away and spent days cleaning the house and still those horrible bugs would come back. I was at the brink of insanity when my friend found LiceDoctors. You were so helpful in ending the lice as well as teaching us what to do to keep them away.”  Nicole J. in Lebanon, Pennsylvania

  • “Sometimes you have to know when to hold them and sometimes you have to know when to fold them. We knew pretty quickly that we needed to bring in some expertise to clean our kids’ heads. Our service of choice was LiceDoctors and you did not let us down. We give all high ratings and have recommended you to friends.” Charlie K. in Pottstown, PA.

  • “My daughters both had lice and my younger one has special needs. Lisa from LiceDoctors was wonderful with both of my girls. She got them to sit still and they loved her. She cleared both of them while answering my questions. She checked me too and I was clear. I was very pleased with the service that we received.” Eve Z. in Reading, PA.
