in Calabasas, CA |
One of my family members went to The Control Center and Dr. Reef was his doctor. His behavior changed 180 after going here. Our whole family is so grateful to Dr. Reef and his team. Other doctors had prescribed my family member wayyyy to many medications and Dr. Reef knew right away that this was a bad idea. It totally turned his life around!

I cannot recommend Dr. Reef enough. Initially I didn't want to go to a doctor, because I didn't think my concerns were that big of a deal, but Dr. Reef was very relaxed and made me feel at ease. He also has a great sense of humor which is actually super important to me and helped me manage my stress a great deal. Also I thought that Stephanie & the office staff were very nice as well.
in Santa Monica, CA |
I really respect Dr. Reef's ability to not diagnose or prescribe right away. He really gets to know you first. He's also a great speaker and a very caring man. Love his quote A good doctor knows when not to prescribe.
in Venice, CA |
Dr. Reef is a very professional doctor. I found him to be very knowledgeable in the fields of addiction and mental health and he really saved my family member's life.
