The best gift a father can give his family

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - June is Men's Health Month and what a perfect time it would be for all fathers to visit the doctor.

Wesley Medical group Physician Doctor Lara Otaigbe said with Father's Day just days away, the best gift any father could give his family is to have a check-up.

Otagibe said "On Father's Day dads are going to get gifts from their children as a token of appreciation for being dad's to them and I think the best thing a dad can do is give a gift back to their child by making a commitment to take care of themselves and visiting with their family physician."

Otaigbe said men should visit the doctor at least once a year.
