In brief: A few possibilities
For elbow pains, one should see his primary care doctor first.
That doctor may solve the problem. Otherwise, the doctor may refer one to a orthopedic (bone specialist) doctor for a bone or joint injury, to a rheumatologist (autoimmune specialist) doctor for a rheumatoid arthritis problem, or to both an orthopedic and infectious disease specialist if a bone or joint infection is suspected.

In brief: I agree
An orthopedist/sports medicine specialist would be a place to start.
They will refer you to the appropriate discipline if warranted.
