In brief: See below.
If there are concerns regarding any developmental issue, first stop is at the pediatrician's for a full exam and history (including development).
If the pediatrician agrees with your concern, the next step is with either a pediatric neurologist or developmental-behavioral specialist for further evaluation and management. As long as a complete eveluation is done, there's no need to travel elsewhere.
