You do not need a special doctor to test you. Your usual doctor can test you. If your test says you have it then you can look for a special one, if you feel you need it.

If your GP is on the ball and has some familiarity with celiac disease, he/she can test you. Otherwise, call around several gastroenterologists and inquire whether or not they are experienced with celiac disease. If the office says something like "that's rare" then you should try the next doctor on the list.
