Dr. Allen Stark, MD.

Bio: I am a Psychiatric Physician still in practice after 40 years. I am in practice with my wife, Carol, who is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. She is also a Masters Swimmer and we met at the Rice University pool. I was captain of the swim team and she was, successfully, bugging the coach to form a women's team (pre-Title IX). 

I have been swimming Masters for 43 years and have twice broken the Masters World Record in the 200M breast.
