In brief: Depends...

Your family doctor can order the tests for asthma, pulmonary function tests.
But, the tests are interpreted by a pulmonary doctor and then your family doctor gets the test results with the interpretation.

In brief: Pulmonary or Allergy

The two specialties with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma are pulmonary, and allergy & immunology.
Either should be able to administer and interpret the tests needed to diagnose and properly assess the severity of asthma.
