In brief: Any specialty
Any physician (md or do) or podiatrist can order. The test itself should be performed by a physiatrist (physical medicine and rehabilitation physician) or neurologist.

In brief: See below
Any medical physician (md or do) can 'order' an EMG or nerve conduction study.
This is done by consulting a physician skilled in performance of emg/ncs, usually a neurologist or physiatrist (pm&r physician). Look for someone who is board-certified by the abem (american board of electrodiagnostic medicine) or has additional training (fellowship in electrophysiology or neuromuscular medicine).

Keep in mind neuropathy may be secondary to small nerve fiber disease and nerve conduction studies test large nerve fibers.
