Dr. Dairman is from northern New Jersey. Upon graduating from Skidmore College (1994) where “Creative Thinking Matters”, Dr. Dairman completed a Masters in Epidemiology from the SUNY Albany School of Public Health and went on to attend medical school in Chicago at the William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin School of Medicine and Science graduating with honors and as a Swanson Independent Scholar in 2000. He completed his residency in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery under the guidance of Drs. Dan Hatch and Jeff Jensen through the Northern Colorado Podiatric Surgery program. On completion of his residency, he and his very pregnant wife Wendy moved to Suffolk in 2003 where he began practice at Foot Care of Hampton Roads and wife Wendy gave birth to their daughter Lucy one month later. 1Foot 2Foot was formed in 2006 with eight employees as the first of its kind in the country to include a full-scope podiatry practice, medical-grade nail spa and comfort shoe store under one roof.

In his spare time, Dr. Dairman is an avid 5k runner, dabbles in yoga and meditation, enjoys a game of pickleball and can sometimes be found on the disc golf course. A lesser known fact is that Dr. Dairman is quite the renaissance man – a sporadic actor and singer, ukulele and piano player, and digital artist/graphic designer by hobby. His art has gained national recognition and brightens up offices around the country with his vibrant use of color.
Dr. Dairman’s philosophy is Better Feet for a Better Life. Whether you want your feet or ankles to feel better, look better, perform better, or simply stay better, Dr. Dairman will get you there.
