No, but you need a : Primary care provider: family medicine doctor, pediatrician or pediatric nurse practitioner. Developmental surveilllance should be part of " well-child checks, " with autism-specific screening at 18 & 24 mos. At 18 years, you sign your own hipaa & insurance forms & your doctor can't share any information with your parents without your written permission, unless they're your legal guardians.

No: Pediatricians are specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases that occur in infants, children, teens and early 20s, but there are no requirements that you see a pediatrician. Family practitioners have general training in the care of infants through the elderly. Internists care for adults.The most important thing is that you find a dr you're comfortable with.
