She then completed a residency at the University of Chicago Hospitals, and cardiology and electrophysiology fellowships at Emory University Hospitals in Atlanta. She joined Iowa Heart Center in 1996.

Dr. Sorrentino is board certified in cardiology and electrophysiology and currently practices at Iowa Heart Center's clinic in Ames. Other interests include sleep disordered breathing as it relates to arrhythmias and heart disease.
