About Dr. Lauren Craddock

Dr. Lauren Craddock is a dual board-certified Dermatologist and Internist with a strong background in Telemedicine and Health Information Technology. Areas of expertise include the diagnosis and treatment of acne, autoimmune disease, blistering diseases, eczema, all forms of hair loss, hives (urticaria), paraneoplastic conditions, psoriasis, rashes, rosacea, sarcoidosis, seborrheic dermatitis, SLE, and skin cancers. She also enjoys providing aesthetic treatments with neuromodulators (e.g. Botox), fillers, and lasers. Originally from the Gulf Coast of Alabama, Dr. Craddock graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in biology from Spring Hill College and MD degree from University of South Alabama College of Medicine. She is one of the few people in the country to complete a combined Internal Medicine and Dermatology residency at University of Wisconsin – Madison (UW), with special focus on Rheumatology / Dermatology overlap conditions, vasculitis, and severe cutaneous adverse drug reactions. After graduating, she joined UW as academic faculty where she co-founded a dedicated inpatient Dermatology consult service, successfully implemented and studied new Health Information Technology tools involved in the safe electronic cancelation of prescriptions, and served as co-director of a basic science Dermatology course for medical students. Dr. Craddock’s interests outside of work include gardening, nature walks with her two miniature dachshunds, traveling, and spending time with her family.
