Paul Retey
Board Certified
Hearing Aid Specialist
SC Lic# HAS-0527

The Retey family has been providing exceptional hearing care since 1993. As a second-generation hearing aid specialist Paul feels incredibly blessed to continue the mission of acting locally to transform lives with better hearing.  Paul founded Inlet Hearing Aid Center in 2015 to bring his vision of patient-focused care to Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. The cornerstones of honesty and integrity have been so well received that Paul expanded with offices in Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island and renaming the company ABSOLUTE HEARING CARE CENTERS.

Paul is a member of the International Hearing Society (IHS) and serves as the treasurer of the state chapter South Carolina Hearing Aid Society (SCHAS).  In 2021 Paul was appointed by the Governor to serve as a commissioner on the board of the SC Hearing Aid Commission.

Paul earned advanced degrees from Tufts University in Boston, and the University of New Hampshire. He is state licensed and nationally Board Certified and possesses experience in the most up-to-date diagnostic technologies and advanced hearing solutions.

Paul and his wife Lisa, a middle school teacher, focus on growing their Christian faith and raising their 4 children: daughters Chloe Gabriella (15), Lily Elizabeth (13), Abby Claire (11), and son Kal Thomas (8).

As a seasoned veteran with over 10 years of professional hearing aid specialist experience in both Maryland and Pennsylvania, Chris brought his passion for improving lives through better hearing to Absolute Hearing in 2018.  Chris has seen the truly life changing effects of better hearing across patients of all ages - 18 to 106 years old - and is honored to now be serving our local Grand Strand community.  One of his greatest rewards is the expression on someone's face after hearing their spouse's voice for the first time in years.
