In brief: No nagging!

I am a guy. I procrastinate like the best of them. However, in 23 years of medical practice, i can group my male patients in 2 main groups, the ones who come in because they've been nagged to do so, and the ones who feel no one else can be in charge of their own health but themselves.
My best advice to you is to tell him why you are concerned, and hope he takes it from there.
