In brief: Orthopaedist

My bias is to see an orthopaedists but there are many capable podiatrists that can often help with heel pain.
Usually this is plantar fasciitis and treated with heel cups and stretching exercises and anti-inflammatory medications.

In brief: Podiatry

Foot dr., podiatrist.
Another choice is an orthopedic surgeon who still sees foot problems.
