In brief: Work with one doctor
If a child has a chronic problem such as "pooping only every 2 weeks", the parents can get opinions from 3 pediatric gastroenterologists (stomach doctors).
The parents should select the doctor they feel most comfortable with, and work with that doctor for a few months. The doctor can clear the bowels and do tests to determine a diagnosis and treatment, over several weeks, or sooner if necessary.

You need to make sure that the child doesn't have Hirschsprung disease. It is rare but it can happen. Constipation could related to diet, especially with high fat and carbohydrate. Children needed to be told to go to the bathroom around the same time to get the brain to send signals to go to the bathroom at the same time every day.

In brief: Withholding
The most common reason for chronic constipation is voluntary withholding of stool.
If the child evacuated normally as an infant and toddler, and began this as a young child, then withholding is quite likely. This may be the first symptom of adhd. Is the child otherwise healthy, growing, and developing well? Retraining toileting may be your treatment option. Discuss with pediatrician.
