ABOUT DR. BRITT CRAIGLOW, MD
Dr. Craiglow is double board-certified in both dermatology and pediatric dermatology, has authored over sixty publications and is regularly invited to speak at national and international conferences. While she treats the full range of dermatologic diseases, her particular areas of interest include hair loss (alopecia), atopic dermatitis (eczema), psoriasis, vitiligo, acne and rare and inherited skin diseases.
After completing her medical training, Dr. Craiglow spent several years on the full-time faculty at Yale before transitioning to private practice in order to be able to focus more of her energy on patient care, which is her true passion. She continues to maintain an active academic presence, publishing regularly in major medical journals and supervising and teaching dermatology residents and medical students. She also volunteers on a variety of boards and committees for patient support organizations and dermatologic societies.
A note from Dr. Craiglow: While most conditions in dermatology are not life-threatening, they can be dramatically life-altering. I believe strongly in treating the patient, not just the disease. Every patient and family’s experience is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. I pride myself on getting to know my patients and their families, spending time to educate about their condition and treatment options and advocating for their health. I am often the “last stop on the train” for patients with rare, severe and/or challenging-to-manage skin conditions and work tirelessly to help them achieve wellness.
