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.

At Daniel's, Jenn tells him Anne ensured nobody but Brady could be at the court hearing. Parker says goodbye and Jenn goes. The lady from the park calls Jennifer and asks her to meet to discuss Daniel Jonas.
Brady sees Theresa at the hospital and they discuss their break. Brady goes and Anne walks up. Theresa is concerned her name will come up in the hearing. Anne doesn't see why it would but remembers her she has a key to Daniel's apartment. That's not good. Theresa claims to have lost it. Anne says it doesn't matter. She'll make sure Daniel loses his career. Later, Dan, Brady and Anne are at the hearing. Brady opens the proceedings by telling the other board members they're there to review Dr. Jonas' suspension and to determine the future of his employment at the hospital. Anne brings up Theresa's overdose but Brady calls it irrelevant. Besides, Daniel's toxicology screen came up clean. Brady says Daniel stopped surgery when on Dilaudid, which helps his case. The board takes a short recess. Once they return, for now, since there's no evidence he has knowingly ingested the drugs previously, Daniel is given 30 days suspension for surgery and must submit to random drug tests. Non-surgical duties resume tomorrow. Anne's livid.
Nicole barges into Daniel's apartment on edge. He tells her to calm down and gets her some water. She's about to tell him everything when Brady calls to see how Daniel's doing. Daniel can't discuss the case with him because he's on the hospital board but says he's okay. They hang up and Daniel assumes Nicole wants to do an expose on this. He doesn't want to go to Theresa with this but Nicole says Theresa may not be...Daniel cuts her off. She again tries to explain but JJ and Abigail arrive. They ask what they can do and Daniel says Nicole was about to tell him her plan. Nicole stammers a little and says they'll talk strategy later. They know she helped their uncle Eric so think Daniel's in good hands. Abigail takes off and Dan goes in the other room. JJ apologizes for being rotten to her when they first met. Nicole accepts and goes. Outside, she recalls Liam blackmailing her. Later, JJ asks Daniel how he can help bring Theresa down. Daniel says he can't risk JJ going to prison. He asks JJ to concentrate on school and his life. JJ realizes he ditched Paige by accident. It's been an hour! He goes.
Daniel runs into Theresa at the parkette.
When Theresa sees Daniel at the park she turns to go. He tells her not to walk away from him. She heard what happened to him and is so sorry. He asks if she's sorry she did it. She claims she didn't do it but he doesn't believe her. She flashes to giving Liam the key to his place. Dan threatens that if she thinks what she has on JJ can protect her she is crazy. She looks frightened but repeats she didn't do it. She asks him to stop harassing her. He thinks she was working with someone. She leaves and he takes a call from Jenn, asking him to stop by. Nearby, Liam meets a woman who looks uneasy and says she took care of what he wanted. They're even.
Jenn meets with Dan at her place. He tells her about his talk with Theresa, who seemed really worried. Jenn says Brady is helping them but it doesn't go over well. Brady arrives and tells them he quit drinking and Theresa. Surprised, Daniel agrees to let Brady help.
