I recommend this place.Priscila RosalesPriscila Rosales ★★★★★ Great service! She was super nice and understanding.Shondra CulpepperShondra Culpepper ★★★★★ LIFESAVER!!!! I had been through lice before with my older kids when they were younger as there was an outbreak at their daycare. Well back then, about 14 years ago there were no lice clinics to take your kids to. Doing the treatment myself was a nightmare and not 100% effective.Fast forward to today, when my nine-year-old had been exposed to lice from a friend. I called the clinic to make an appointment for us to all get checked. My daughter had lice and immediately got treated by Lex. Lex was knowledgeable, kind and efficient! It made what could have been a terrible experience actually pleasant. To be able to go home 100% lice free is amazing and worth every penny. I never write reviews but I highly recommend Lice Charmers!!Esmeralda MartinezEsmeralda Martinez ★★★★★ This was the first time that I experienced with lice with my youngest daughter a feeling with stress but i found this professional head lice removal and the company is called Lice Charmers!
