What type of doctor should I see?

I have been having some bowel & stomach problems. My family doc just said..."stay away from milk & ice cream"..since those were a definate cause of strong gasses & painful bloating. Well, things have gotten worse. Almost wondering if caffine is giving me trouble too.
Anyways, what kind of 'specialist' should I see. Sounds like my family doc don't want to deal with it much.

You need to see a Gastroenterologist but you usually need to be referred by your primary care Doctor.
