From 2000 to 2003, Döring served in the II Legislature of the Legislative Assembly of the Federal District.

From 2003 to 2006, Döring represented Mexico City's 15th district in the Chamber of Deputies during the LIX Legislature. In his first tour of duty in San Lázaro, he was the secretary of two commissions: Communications, and an investigative committee to review public works contracts awarded to Construcciones Prácticas, S.A. de C.V. He also sat on commissions dealing with the Federal District, Budget and Public Accounts, and Special for Investigation of the Institute for the Protection of Bank Savings (IPAB).[1] While in the LIX Legislature, Döring sat on the Regional Directive Committee for the PAN in the Federal District.[1]

After his six years in the Senate, Döring returned to the Legislative Assembly of the Federal District, serving in its VI Legislature.
