Due to an unfortunate car accident, I had the pleasure to be seen by Dr. Rowena Johnson on two occasions. Dr. Johnson was incredibly knowledgable on my particular injuries and was thorough with her investigations. Looking back I felt lucky to have had Dr. Johnson carry out my scans. She is a very talented and knowledgable doctor. I would like to thank her for helping me on my journey to recovery and yet again prove that John Radcliffe Hospital has incredibly talented staff with the best patient care. Thank you, Dr. Johnson, for everything you have done for me. Very best wishes

Very good service and makes patience very comfortable. More professionals should be like that. A job should be done out of care, passion and not for the sake of it.

Fantastic consultation with Dr Johnson. I had an injection into my hip joint for arthritis and a tear of my labrum. I was nervous as I've had the procedure done before by a different doctor and found it very painful. Much better experience today. She used a very thin needle and gave me a lot of local anaesthetic. Very different experience to my previous injection- I hardly felt it! I would have no hesitation to recommend her, she's brilliant. The nurse who assisted her was friendly and helped me feel at ease.

Dr Johnson was extremely personable and welcoming, explaining what the procedure was due to be, and what were the potential outcomes. She was at great pains to be thorough in the ultrasound examination, referring to a previous x-ray, and looking beyond the immediate area. Dr Johnson summarised the consultation at the end, and provided clear and simple advice as to how I might wish to proceed. It was a pleasure to meet Dr Johnson, and I highly recommend her.

Dr Johnson was incredibly efficient, knowledgable and kind, answering all my questions clearly and even taking the time to draw a diagram for me so that I could fully understand my own body. A really good experience - I wish all doctors were like her!

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Johnson. She took the time to explain to me the procedure beforehand. She was very careful to limit the pain the procedure implied, and took the time to make sure I was fine afterwards. She was very nice through the whole process. The nurse that was helping Dr. Johnson was also very nice and helpful. The only thing is that it should be made clear to patients beforehand whether or not procedures would prevent them from driving back so they can get organised.
