In brief: Pediatrician
Most pediatricians are qualified to do a girls adolescent health exam. If your daughter needs a pap smear, some pediatric offices do not perform this procedure.
I would call ahead to your office and find out. Adolescent health specialists would also be a good place to turn for a health exam, and/ or pap smear.
