It depends on the type of anemia you have: if it's a simple iron-deficiency anemia, though unlikely in adult males (it is much more common in females because of blood loss with menstruation), then an internist should be able to treat it. But the cause of the anemia needs to be thoroughly investigated, especially if you come from a family with a history of blood diseases (hereditary blood disorders like thalassemia or sickle cell disease), and this is where you need to consult a hematologist (blood specialist),since such conditions require more sophisticated tests for diagnosis.
