My son's Pediatrician recommended Dr. Doyne as a child therapist. I decided to engage in individual therapy with Dr. Doyne when I was unable to obtain consent from the father. He has helped me to gain an understanding of my situation and myself. Useful tips towards parenting and resources are readily given. Collaboration with other professionals, as well as, understanding the legal and court processes are a bonus. When I needed to come back after a long hiatus Dr. Doyne was there to become part of my team again. Thank you.
Dr. Doyne has been absolutely amazing for the two years my son has seen him. It is not an exaggeration to say that without Dr. Doyne, my son would not have been able to get through a very diffucult time in his life. Dr. Doyne has been an advocate for my son, has built a strong trust with my son (at a time when he wasn't sure if he could trust anyone) and has been nothing short of phenomenal as a professional and as a caring, helpful man. If I could give more than five stars, I would! Thank you Dr. Doyne!
THANK FOR HELPING US, DR. STEPHEN DOYNE – Dr. Stephen Doyne restored peace in our home with our children even though I did not win. Considering how long he has been in business with only a few negative stories-- obviously came from the loser not the winner-- I am very impressed with his work, attitude, honesty, style of hearing all sides and his genuine care for the children involved. And I personally think the children are worth the money and time these professionals take to find the best solution for the children and anyone who does not agree because they lost their case, some of their time, or some of their money needs to seek some professional help immediately for the sake of their children. The shoemaker's children never have any shoes. Where is the accountability people? Now go do the right thing for your children not yourself!
Fantastic in all regards – In short, Dr. Doyne is incredible. His experience, education, empathy, and approach to counseling got me through an extremely difficult period in my life. He was able to identify with my situation due to his many years of practice and quickly get me on a treatment path that yielded nothing less than consistent progress and great results. While therapy is not always easy, my sessions with Dr. Doyne were the highlight of my day. He is not a person who will tell someone what they want to hear to unnecessarily prolong therapy. He provides the therapy that a person needs to get better. His goal was always the same as mine; to become a better, healthier person as soon as possible. It was also evident from day one that his goal was not to have me as a patient until the end of time to line his own pockets. While Dr. Doyne made sure I felt that he was there to provide support and counseling whenever I needed it, he placed great emphasis on and delivered progress. I can honestly say that my life is on a completely different, happier, and healthier path than it would or could have been without Dr. Doyne. I also feel that I have found someone on whom I can rely to help me get through any other difficult times in my life that I might have. After seeing the good that Dr. Doyne can do, I fully intend to use him as a resource to not only get through these times but also help make the good times better. His wisdom is equally valuable to augmenting the healthy as it is to aiding the troubled. He is trustworthy, available, kind, smart, and dedicated. I urge any readers of this post that are serious about improving themselves, their marriage, or their lives to disregard the negative feedback on this website and give Dr. Doyne a chance. As did I, I'm sure you will discover in the first few minutes of speaking with him that he is of the highest quality. You will also find within your first session with him that he deserves nothing less than your trust, respect, and confidence. While it seems that the internet has been flooded with what appear to me to be disingenuous, vindictive reviews of Dr. Doyne, I hope you will see the genuineness, honesty, and authenticity of this review and give yourself the chance you deserve to be helped by a great man. While I do not want to post details of my personal life on the internet, the reader should know that I have told Dr. Doyne that he can use me as a reference and stand ready to speak his praises or answer any questions about my experience with him should he ever feel it is appropriate or necessary. Don’t succumb to the irrational anger of individuals that most likely can’t be helped and are probably angry for reasons that have nothing to do Dr. Doyne. I hope you read and believe the reviews of Dr. Doyne by happy, healthy people because I’m sure that is what you want yourself, your children, your spouse, your friends, or your family to become. Cheers.
Doyne was falsely accused - man up and apologize – Dr. D practiced here for years and helped thousands. Then a therapist-dad came out as the bad guy in report and made it his mission in life to ruing Doyne's life. After Doyne was vindicated NOT ONE of the people who repeated the crazy stories has had the maturity to stand up, apologize, and fix the mess they helped create. Don't believe me? Here's the record of appeal exonerating him: see Tadros v. Doyne, 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, case number (Super. Ct. No. 37-2008-00093885-
Exposing needs to quit exposing, and start focusing on treating his family properly and being a decent member of society
Run! Run! Run Away! Don't go! Children will hurt more – Doyne is a self centered egocentric actor/fraud who ruins families. There is no way that I could contribute 1 star but had to in order to post this truth. Any money you may have, he and Dr. lori love will empty. Doyne doesn't care about you or your children. Run away. Don't go to him or his partner, Lori Love.Purposely, they will go back and forth and perpetuate in order to take your money. Children have begged for help when being abused- don't care. Women are usually called histrionic, men are narcissists. The more money you have, the longer this will go on... Both will drain you. Use you, your children and abuse you. Both lie, make up fabricate and do not in any way look out for yours or your children's best interest. The system itself is incestuous. Don't be conned by your Attorney to use either one. They will postpone, delay, manipulate real truth. The more money you have..more money they will take. The family law court system needs to fire these fraudulant and unethical so called experts.
Doyne's Fraud on The Public – ** Doyne is by his innate nature is a manipulative, con- artist professional fraud, Credentials fraud , Propaganda Fraud, and is clearly full of ? pumping air in a dead horse CV/Resume?. Doyne has gone the extra mile to purchase a useless, but certainly very impressive piece of paper certificate, of which the same was sold to a HOUSE CAT! Google "The Credentialing Con"
Do not be fooled by this smarmy man. In my experience his only interest is in extracting as much money as possible from his unsuspecting clients/victims. Instead of choosing office decor which would help children feel at ease, he instead has photos of himself at a triathlon, his own sports trophies and other objects of vanity which are absurd and inappropriate in a professional office. He will profit greatly by charging for numerous and needless standard psychological tests which he'll administer to you and your children. He has sued clients who have dared to criticize the authenticity of his proffered credentials. IMO it is highly unlikely that you or your children will benefit from any contact with this man.
He Saw The Truth! – Dr. Doyne was wonderful through the entire custody evaluation. The kids loved him and he was very comfortable to talk to. My husand asked specifically to have the evaluation done because his ex-wife was continuously making false accusations. She had a hidden agenda for putting our family through hell and back. The courts would never do anything about it after we had the support of many professionals. Dr. Doyne saw right through what her and her boyfriend were doing to the children. She was using them as pawns and putting them through terrible things that they will never forget. He was an advocate for those children and now that my husband has sole legal custody, they are somewhat protected, although she does share in physical custody. No one wants to see the children taken away from a parent and he recommended her to have some therapy for her issues. Unfortunately, she will never change her ways. Dr. Doyne took the time to get to know us and our values and listen to everyone's concerns on BOTH sides. This is something that you never get in court. You are always rushed out of there without being able to tell your side of the story and it seems that the judges are annoyed that you are even in front of them. In a divorce, there is always going to be one side that is not happy or did not get exactly what they wanted. This is about the children and what is best for them. I feel he did what he was hired to do and did it in a professional matter. All of the people that were after him about fraud, were people that didn't agree with his recommendation. Dr. Doyne was awarded legal fees by the court, further proving that the claims were meritless and without any foundation. I highly recommend Dr. Doyne without any hesitation. He knows children and what is best for them.
Tellin' it as I know it. – I would be highly suspectful of any positive post on here about Doyne. Where, where do you ever find so many negative posts about any one professional? Almost never — the public has spoken the truth about Doyne, this should be truthtelling in and of itself.
The facts speak louder than anything. Go to thepucliccourt d o t c o m and see the material evidence that Doyne has bogus credentials, and has lied on his CV. In my opinion, he could not be any more of a con-artist and fraud.
Not only that, he has taught the CA Rules of Court to legal professionals and to other psychologists many times and violates the very Rules of Court he teaches. Again, go to thepubliccourt d o t c o m to see the truth. Doyne states on his CV that he teaches CRC 5.225. It is fact that San Diego Superior Court and every single Family Law professional in the County of San Diego NEVER used the forms that would qualify Custody Evaluators as legally qualified expert witnesses, to legally attach to a case. Doyne is the teacher of these Rules and NEVER qualified.
One can only imagine that the positive posts below are Doyne himself, or Doyne cronies manipulated by Doyne? One can only imagine this is a comeback attempt by Doyne.
Doyne didn’t win in Court against anyone. The Court is corrupt itself as it has violated the CA Rules of Court that Doyne teaches too — Doyne and the Court are complicit, and the Court has simply backed Doyne to cover itself up. Moreover, it is Doyne's responsibility to know these Rules of Court as they have been published in the public domain, accessible to court professionals, and yet Doyne ignored them all - so it's not the Court's fault for him not knowing. It’s corruption at it’s worst — flagrant, arrogant, and downright slimy. In my view, Doyne is extremely unprofessional, unethical, and a con-artist, fraud.
Why would you ever trust a guy like Doyne under these circumstances? Again, go to thepubliccourt d o t c o m the facts are all there, and with the 10News story still online, and with all of the other posts about Doyne on the internet. This many people and facts would not be if it all were not true about Doyne. My reccomendation is to stay very far away from Doyne.
Doyne never spoke to the Media on camera about the allegations against him, Doyne has never come out to the public and showed beyond a shadow of doubt that he is not lying on his CV, and that he is Board Certified as a Diplomate, that he has always been qualified to perform as an expert witness. Right there should tell you something extremely strong about this guy.
Doyne has "cat credentials", he has a Diplomate from a "diploma mill" who has given a Diplomate to a pet cat. He does not have a real Board Certification in Forensic Psychology from a real Board like the ABPP. He has "cat credentials".
