I would say you should start with a gastroenterologist who is well-versed in gastric bypass surgery. Or a hematologist who has experience with gastric bypass so they know what do with it.

Anemia and mineral deficiency from gastric bypass is a "special" case and needs to be handled by any one of the specialist you listed who happens to know what to do with a gastric bypass patient.

For any of you that are having side effects w/ iron, you might want to do a search on Repliva. It is a new prescription and is supposed to have less side effects and more absorption. You take the iron only 21 days a month but get absorption for 30. Good luck. What can cause anemia other than menstral problems?
You need to contact a nutritionist at a hospital that specializes in gastric bypass in your area. He/she will review your diet and vitamins and suggest what could be missing. Anemia usually becomes apparent after a long time of low iron diet and lack of iron supplements. Call a place that has a complete after-surgery care program.
