Hello..... Increased alkaline phosphatase with normal other values suggestive of obstructive jaundice.... Ultrasound is required to know the cause for obstruction , it could be external or internal obstruction.... You can consult general physician (MD),if it's surgical procedure you should consult general surgeon.
