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 holds 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 founded Inlet Hearing Aid Center in 2015 to bring his vision of patient-focused care to the Murrells Inlet/South Strand area. The cornerstones of honesty and integrity have been so well received that Paul expanded by opening a second office in Myrtle Beach – then renaming the company ABSOLUTE HEARING CARE CENTERS. The mission – to ensure patients receive caring, competent, and trustworthy help with their hearing - has now been extended to the entire Grand Strand community.

Paul and his wife Lisa, a former special education teacher, focus on growing their Christian faith and raising their 4 children: daughters Chloe (10), Lily (8), Abby (6), and son Kal (3).
