Dr. Daniel Jonas comes to Salem March 4 2008. Victor Kiriakis calls upon his expertise in dealing with Bo Brady's illness (pancreatic failure).
With Bo's daughter, Chelsea, as the donor, Dr. Daniel performed a risky pancreatic transplant that saved Bo's life. Soon, Daniel realized that Chelsea developed a crush on him, but he tried to stay away from her. When pursued and questioned by Chelsea, Daniel finally revealed that he feared getting close to a patient because he might lose them, just as he lost his wife when she died from cancer. Chelsea made him see that that wouldn't happen with them and Daniel finally gave in to his feelings for Chelsea. Daniel faced scrutiny from Bo and Victor, especially about the age difference between he and Chelsea, but they dated anyway. Their relationship ended when Chelsea found out that Daniel and Kate had slept together before they started dating. Chelsea couldn't forgive Daniel and though he tried to stay away from Kate, he couldn't deny his attraction to her.
When he saw that Kate had a bad cough, he suggested that she have tests done, but Kate insisted that it was just a cough. Daniel sought Chelsea for help to convince Kate to see a doctor and Kate finally agreed. She had tests done, including a lung biopsy, which revealed that she had lung cancer. When the truth about their relationship first came out, Kate's sons, Philip and Lucas, insisted that Kate get a different doctor. Later they all agreed to do the best thing for Kate, even if that meant Daniel treating her.
Dr. Daniel Jonas treated Kate for her diagnosis of lung cancer. He was caught between his feelings for her and his fears of the past repeating itself, but his feelings for Kate were lessened once he got to know Chloe Lane Black, and fell in love with her. They had a fling, but Chloe made a deal with God that she'd marry Lucas if he'd spare his life during an explosion, so she has done so but is not happy. She is being poisoned by Kate Roberts, who knows about the affair. Kate's setting Daniel up to take a fall. Kate was able to set Daniel up but Stefano stepped in and cleaned up Kate's mess. Kate was still in love with Daniel and hurt by him so tried to hurt him in return. Daniel ended up marrying Chloe, but the union didn't last when she had sex with Philip Kiriakis and became impregnated. She pawned off the kid as Daniel's and once he found out, he dumped her. Daniel eventually met Jennifer Horton and they started dating. Jack returned to town and the two started dating Jennifer in order to help Jenn decide which man she wants to be with. He warned her that he's in love and won't wait forever. Recently, Daniel learned that Maggie Horton's his biological mother. He's hurt that his parents didn't tell him before they both passed on.
Daniel agreed to give Maggie away at her wedding to Victor Kiriakis. Meanwhile, Daniel began to experience tremors in his hands and feared that he had Myasthenia Gravis like Maggie. Around Christmas, Daniel realized how happy Jack and Jennifer were together and didn’t want to break up the family. He bowed out gracefully and a broken-hearted Jennifer asked him if they can remain friends. Later, Daniel got his test results back: he has Intention Tremors which may have been caused by a stroke that Daniel might have had while he was asleep. Devastated that he wouldn’t be able to be a surgeon any more, he decided to leave town to surf and think.
Daniel returned to Salem at the end of February 2012 and seems to be in better spirits. He told Jenn they could be friends and is moving on. Jack Devereaux died and he was dating Nicole Walker and helped her to keep the truth from EJ who was the child's daddy. The child died before she was born and EJ earned the truth. He decided not to prosecute. Nicole and Daniel grew apart when Daniel's feelings for Jenn resurfaced and Jenn found a new option for surgery to cures his tremors. He had surgery and went to the Horton Cabin to think, when it didn't look as though surgery worked. Jenn and Nicole followed and Jenn had appendicitis. Daniel performed surgery and saved her life and she professed her love for him. He and Jenn started to date again and Nicole moved on. When Chloe showed up in Salem to tell him Parker was really his son, things became tense. Chloe was trying to do what she could and even used Parker, to attempt to break him and Jenn up.

Abby greets Daniel and Parker at the Kiriakis house. Abby mentions JJ and Daniel asks if she thinks JJ's happy. Abby says she thinks it's very difficult for JJ knowing that Jack will never walk through the door again. Daniel thinks he's lucky she and Jenn are so supportive.
At home, Jennifer asks JJ if she can return Daniel's MP3 player to him. JJ flashes to telling Daniel it broke and says he already did. He mentions it wasn't working anyway. JJ tells Jennifer he's taking off. Jenn demands to know where he's going. They bicker. Jenn says he's not going anywhere and pleads with him to talk to her. Daniel and Abby enter. Jenn tells Daniel they'll fix his MP3 player. JJ admits he smashed it, by accident, and there's something else. Parker's train set is toast too. Jenn tells him to get a job to replace what he's broken. JJ apologizes to Daniel. He and Abby leave for a walk. Jenn tells Daniel she blames herself for JJ's bad behavior. She insists he'll see a change once she helps him walk through this.
JJ finds Jenn kissing Daniel at home. "You sure are around here a lot, aren't you?" he asks. Jennifer agrees. JJ tells Jenn he registered for summer school. He leaves the room and Jenn explains that JJ's been kicked out of boarding school. Daniel knows from experience that boys act out when they're in mourning. Jenn gives him a CD for Parker and Daniel goes to extremes to tell her he's going to load it to his MP3 player - the one that was engraved and from his daughter. JJ returns to eavesdrop. He asks to borrow an MP3 player and Daniel hands his over. The men leave and Maggie arrives. They discuss Jenn's hopes that JJ and Daniel will eventually get along.
JJ heads to the hospital to return Daniel's MP3 player - he dropped it and a truck rolled over it. "Bummer," JJ says. Daniel repeats him but looks as though he thinks it was deliberate.
