"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 performed a surgery on our 5 week old son who was born with TOF in July of 2012 at Columbia Presbyterian. My family and I are super thankful and will be forever grateful for what he & his staff did for Darian. Dr Chen was always thorough & informative in explaining procedures & what the recovery process would be like. My son is now almost 2 yrs old & is a happy, healthy & totally repaired lil guy. Our hope is to one day have Darian meet and shake hands with the man who saved his life.

Dr. Chen performed surgery on me in October, 2013 in Seattle when I was 17. He was such a blessing to my family and I. I couldn't have asked for a more talented, professional and down to earth surgeon. He genuinely cared about me and I have never felt so much concern from a doctor before. Dr. Chen came to check on me about three times after surgery and even bought me ice cream one day. He truly is an amazing person and I would recommend him to anyone who was faced with having to surgically fix a congenital heart defect. He rocks!

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!
