This isn't the answer to your question, but it's something I feel strongly on. You deserve a better doctor--one who respects you and listens to you. It took me a while to really feel comfortable with this, even though it's totally common sense--you are their employer and I know I can't treat my employer like some peds treat parents. And if I am ever in a bad position, like with a really sick/injured kid, I want someone who will listen to me, even if I am scared and not very eloquent. If my kid's doctor won't listen when I'm at my best, at a regular, scheduled, healthy kid visit, then I have no reason to believe they'll listen to my concerns and questions when I'm at my worst.
I have no idea about the real answer to your question, I've wondered the same thing about how much junk is in the combo vs the individuals, but since I eventually ended up at the no-vax place, I haven't pursued it. But I wanted to put in my 2-cents that you and your child deserve better. And better is out there--the Finding Your Tribe folks often have good recommendations, esp if you are okay with a family practitioner (I have one and am quite happy).
I hope you find someone who really knows the answer to your question. I want to know too.
