In brief: Specialist

You need to see a hematologist or oncologist who regularly treats leukemia.
This is not a diagnosis your primary care doctor will treat.

In brief: Specialist

Keep your primary care in the loop but a heme/onc doc should be involved with leukemia.

In brief: See below...

If you have a confirmed diagnosis of leukemia, a specialist, namely a hematologist/oncologist, should coordinate and manage your treatment.
