In brief: Depends
If you have had mammograms or breast ultrasounds in the past, go to the doctor that ordered them (that way if any imaging is ordered, he or she can compare them to the previous).
If you are under 40 or have not had any imaging studies, i would recommend seeing your primary care physician first.

In brief: Depends
The physician that provides you with regular medical exams and orders mammograms would likely be the best choice.
In rural areas, this is often the gp, whereas in metro areas many women do their pap screens, lab and xray studies with a gyn.
