In brief: With a Specialist

A board certified psychiatrist is the one with the most expertise in the treatment of schizophrenia.
I would therefore recommend that specialist for such treatment. This is because SCZ is a very serious condition, but can be often controlled with proper treatment. One may or may not be found to have Schizophrenia, which is a chronic brain disease affecting one percent of the population Good luck.

In brief: Absolutely

Psychiatrists are the speciallist who know a great deal about schizophrenia, both in terms of diagnosing it and treating it.
Although it can be a frightening disorder for the individual and family members, it often responds well to treatment, and early diagnosis and treatment help a lot to minimize the fallout than occur as a result of impaired reality testing.
