Usually a psychiatrist.

You can start with a primary care physician but if the primary isnt sure what is going on then it is time to consult a psychiatrist or possible even a neurologist. Schizophrenia falls under a psychiatrists scope but dementia can fall under a neurologists scope. A good primary care doc should be able to point you towards one direction or another depending on symptomology.
