Came in to check on a rash on my neck. Kooistra prescribed fluocinonide which is a higher potency steroid cream to handle it. He was barely in the room five minutes. He glanced at the rash, wrote out the prescription. Since then, I have seen three other dermatologists and discovered that my skin developed steroid addiction syndrome - I ended up with steroid acne all over my neck, chin, jaw and cheeks and it was spreading up my face. My new dermatologist told me the steroid cream was a problem and I would have to ween off of it. Two dermatologists advised that Kooistra should not have prescibed such a strong cream. Since then, my skin has cleared and I am no longer using steroidal cream. He is a nice man, but that was an awful experience and I will not see him again.
