Yes and no: General doctor can start the process by ordering serial blood tests for anemia. However, for more complex case i encourage you to see a hematologist.

Start with primary: Start off by getting a basic evaluation by your primary and if your primary doctor requires further consults, he/she will recommend you to the appropriate service.
