In brief: Any
Any physician can do it, and any should be able to read it.
Most pediatricians keep the purified protein derivative (the substance that is used to perform the test) in their office. It does not require an order. The doctor places a bubble of the liquid within your skin, then looks at and touches that spot two days later to check the result.
