Peter A. Iannazzo
Peter Iannazzo was our founder. He was an Orthotist and for 50 years, Caldwell’s made Orthotics and Prosthetics. When his kids got older, they expanded the business into Home Medical Equipment. For many years, the two different departments worked together. In 1999, so he could retire, Peter sold the Orthopedic division and now the company is only Home Medical Equipment and soft goods. Service was everything to Peter and we have done everything we can to keep that service ethic alive. He was patient, kind and community oriented. No one was turned away. He was also a great leader, teacher and mentor.
