In brief: Depends

You can start with your primary care physician and then he or she can refer you to a specialist.
You will want to see someone who has a lot of experience in diagnosing and treating marfan's.

In brief: Expert care

The best care and the most accurate diagnoses are made by experts and in expert teams.
The diagnostic evaluation for people with possible marfan syndrome can be complicated and should be made by an expert who has cared for dozens (at least) of people with marfan syndrome.
