In brief: Toxicologists

Physicians with specialty training in dealing with poisonings are toxicologists.
However many physicians, internists, ER docs, pediatricians, family practice, are quite comfortable dealing with many of these issues also.

In brief: A toxicologist

Toxicologists have fellowship training in the area of toxicology which includes common poisonings.
The easiest way to access a toxicologist if you think you have suffered a poisoning is to call your local / regional poison control center.
