In brief: Yes

You do not necessarily need a specialist to treat dyslipidemia.
Routine blood cholesterol levels can be ordered by any physician. In very rare cases when familial dyslipidemia is an issue, a specialist may be required. Keep in mind that there a various "cholesterols" called "good and bad". Have your physician explain the differences.
