Meet Dr. Allison K. Divers



Allison K. Divers, M.D., FAAD, is certified by the American Board of Dermatology and trained in medical, surgical and aesthetic skin care and treatment. She moved back to her hometown of Roanoke after finishing her dermatology residency at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 2002. Dr. Divers was a registered nurse prior to attending Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia, and knows that her nursing experience was invaluable to the physician she has become.

The Bradley Free Clinic of Roanoke Valley is near and dear to her heart, as she has a living history with the clinic. She first volunteered there when she was a Hollins College student, then as a nurse, and now as a dermatologist, in seeing patients in our office, as well as prior having served as a member of the board of directors.

Dr. Divers provides diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of skin diseases and conditions. She is especially interested in the surgical treatment of skin cancer and very much enjoys cosmetic dermatology. Her eye for art complements her aesthetic talents in serving her patients. She welcomes you to enjoy all the beautiful original artwork adorning the office walls. It is the creative dimension that replenishes.

Outside of the office, Dr. Divers enjoys gardening, reading, hiking, traveling, and watching movies with her husband. She also loves art and spending time at museums and galleries.

“I care deeply about what I do in practicing dermatology and taking excellent care of patients. I want for each patient’s experience with our staff and providers to be one that enriches their life. “
