In brief: Several specialists
Bell's palsy can be evaluated by several different specialists.
The most common would be an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist as they treat many with bell's palsy. Neurologists also may treat this problem. Facial plastic surgeons are also a good choice as many have ENT training as well. An eye doctor also may be needed as bell's palsy can put the eye at risk.
