What type of doctor is best at diagnosing genital warts or herpes? dermatologist or urologist and can they do it visually?

I feel that both of these specialists can properly and expertly diagnose those genital conditions after inspecting the lesions.

Majority of primary care docs would feel comfortable diagnosing genital herpes on history and exam, specifically if lesions are typical. In case needed a dermatologist may be consulted for confirmation.
