In brief: Either

As a podiatrist, i would prefer me as you may need the infection drained and the primary docs i know will send those to me anyways.
Upon seeing the patient, i will send or call the primary care doc and let him know what occurred and keep them abreast of your condition. A follow up to the primary doc is recommended to make sure the diabetes is under control. But, initially - foot doc.

In brief: Primary ASAP

See your doctor asap to determine if this can be managed with antibiotics and wound care vs surgical intervention.
Don't wait. Don't wanna lose toes.
