Dr. Denise Foran Billings was born and raised in Michigan, received her undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan and went on to receive her Doctor of Optometry degree from Michigan College of Optometry (formerly Ferris State University, College of Optometry) magna cum laude in 1982.

She treats each patient as she would a family member, with respect, compassion and kindness.
Dr. Billings' Family
Dr. Billings husband, Rick, is also Dr. Billings. He is an optometrist in Sarasota. Their son, Beau, is studying to become an ophthalmologist. While their daughter, Elizabeth, is studying to become a Physician Assistant (PA) or Physical Therapist. The family loves to travel especially to Michigan to see family, Colorado to see friends, and internationally to gain ‘eye opening’ experiences.
Dr. Billings has always been interested in eyes and started wearing glasses at the age of six. One of the first things she did when moving to Florida was to take scuba diving lessons. She and her husband, Rick, enjoyed many colorful underwater experiences. Dr. Billings also enjoys reading, artwork and cooking. Like Dr. Quigley, she also received the Betty Crocker award in High School.
I love being outside whether it’s the beach, hiking in the woods, skiing in Colorado or pontoon boat riding in Michigan. Thankfully, my family loves the outdoors too! We spend a lot of our time together in the Great Outdoors!
