"Devoting my career to congenital cardiac surgery allows me to make a real difference in the lives of our patients - newborns, infants, children and adults. The care of patients with congenital heart defects is a team sport, and I am excited to be part of a team with such broad expertise. Being part of the vanguard in congenital cardiac care is my inspiration, and the lifelong health and happiness of our patients is truly the reward."

Dr.Chen is a GREAT Doctor! He performed surgery for me back in august 2012 in Colambia Presb. I thank GOD all the time for sending me Dr Chen! God bless him!
SabrinaNew York, NY10.12.13
Dr. Chen preformed surgery in New York on my 8 year old back in February. I truly know he was a blessing to my daughter and to our family. Seattle is lucky to have him and we wish him the best of luck. Such an amazing and gifted doctor.

Doctor Jonathan Chen is very awesome and such great. He & his team did a cardiac surgery for my teen boy in earlier this July. I just can not image that we were back home on the 4th day after the operation day. Thank you very much Doctor Chen and his team!
