In brief: Trichinella

Best to see a specialist since this is a pretty uncommon infection and most general doctors will have little experience in managing it.
But any doctor can look up the treatment in a textbook and obtain it for you. You will still be better off with the enhanced follow-up care that a specialist can provide to avoid complications.
