Many: Your primary care doctor can treat sinusitis as well as an allergist. An ENT surgeon can treat you as well and at times may recommend surgery if you meet indications... More than 4 infections per year or evidence of chronic sinusitis.

ENT doctor: Although any primary physician can diagnose and treat acute sinusitis, an ENT doctor is usually better to treat long standing chronic sinusitis.
