"Problems in disclosure were particularly prominent when the abusive partner was also a health professional, which often deterred the victim-survivor from reporting the abuse through fear that they would not be believed due to their partner's status."

SO much yes. Now imagine you're not a health care professional and try to report a doctor (same problem with law enforcement).

We rely on stereotypes how victims "should" be and how they "should" behave to a degree it's absolutely shameful, and it results in victims being judged and not getting support.
