Birmingham, AL, March 19, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service is the fastest growing business in a fast growing industry. Six months ago, the in-home lice treatment and nit-picking service added 11 new markets and this month, the company added six more. Birmingham, Alabama is the home of one of the company's recent launches. The company currently operates in 70 cities nationwide. LiceDoctors hires and trains technicians to go to homes of families with head lice infestations. Currently the company has approximately 200 technicians who work for them and are on call to be dispatched to homes. Many of these technicians are health care professionals, some school nurses. All have had head lice experience before joining the company and undergo a rigorous training program.
The Birmingham treatment area includes Vestavia Hills, Irondale, Fairfield, Birmingham Hoover, Gardendale, Pleasant Grove, Bessemer, Hueytown, Trussville, Leeds, Helena, Pelham, Alabaster, Adamsville, Argo, Bessemer, Caldera, Cardiff, Brookside, Chelsea, Clay, Columbiana, Fultondale, Gardendale, Homewood and Mountainbrook. Families in these areas and nearby have access to LiceDoctors in-home lice treatment service. Families often prefer the benefits of in-home service which include convenience, anonymity, and comfort.
According to Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors with 18 years of experience in the lice treatment field, “We offer the unique combination of the expertise and the resources of a national company with a solid heritage and the personal touch of a local business. Our technicians know how stressful head lice infestations are for families, and they are trained to put the family at ease. In addition, education is a key component of our lice protocol; we show families how to prevent head lice in the future. We equip families with information and know-how so that if they encounter lice in a year from now, that will know what to do."
Wendy’s husband, Dr. Stephen Beck, is a board certified internist and the company's medical director; 18 years ago he developed the protocol that is used by LiceDoctors. Dr. Beck researched lice treatment options and created and copy-righted this treatment plan to coordinate with the life cycle of the louse. It has been used successfully on over 30,000 families.
Wendy explains that the incidence of lice is rising due in part to the growing resistance of lice to the chemical treatments. “Lice mutate and the hearty strains are now dubbed ‘super lice’,” Wendy reports. “These bugs are highly resistant to chemicals. We have seen thousands of families who have used chemical treatments and still have live bugs in their heads. Unfortunately, parents think that their children are lice-free and send them back to school in a contagious state. Adding to the problem is that many schools have dropped their ‘no nit’ policies as children were missing too much school. We have received several calls from the Birmingham, Alabama area and we are pleased to offer this tried and true lice removal service to families in this area."
