One with a licence: Any Doctor with a license to Prescribe medication can can Prescribe these medication. For example a Primary Care Doctor, a Geriatrician, an internist, a Neurologist, a Psychiatrist, etc. These medications are mainly used for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and dementia, but they have many other uses too. Certainly, a Neurologist would usually be the most educated/learned type of physician to.
