In brief: Sleep specialist

Sleep specialists that have probably the best ability to treat apnea are pulmonologist (lung doctors) that have gone on to complete a sub-sub specialty in sleep medicine.
There is a separate board certification for sleep medicine. To find a specialist that is board certified on your area go to www.Aasmnet.Org (american academy of sleep medicine).
