My Siamese cat has bitten several times, the last time was hard, and painful!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is your siamese bleeding a lot?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: Phew. What is the siamese's name and age?

Copy Cat, approximately 6 yrs

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the siamese's name?

Copy Cat

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your siamese?

He's a rescue, extremely attached to me and my husband, single cat household. The biting incidents have been unprovoked, except that the the last event occurred when a small child was visiting.

Hi I'm Dr G. I'd like to help you out with your Siamese. Biting can be very frustrating! Let's see if I can give you some suggestions.
Have all the incidents happened during visits by other people or other stressful events?
Are they all bites to you, or to other people?
How do you respond when he bites?
Siamese are wonderful kitties, but they are a little more high stress for sure. They are kinda like dogs too.
