Normally, the diagnosis is made be a neurologist. In your case, diagnosis was in ER and confirmed by the LP. At that point, you should be turned over to a neurologist as soon as possible, who will decide on the treatment plan. Earlier treatment generally leads to better recovery.

It depends on your condition. Some cases of GBS are mild and the patient can recover with no treatment. Other cases can be severe. What is your condition? Are you getting weaker? If so, the sooner you get a neurologist and treatment the better. If you are stable or recovering, it may not be urgent but you still need a neurologist.
