Have any of you ever had to deal with aggression issues with your cat?

When my neutered tabby was about a year old, he started becoming very aggressive. If he gets angry, he will attack me and bite my hands, legs, whatever he can get ahold of. This often happens if I make him do something he doesn't want to do. He also "stalks" me in the evenings, if he's wanting to be fed. His times of aggression seem to be mostly early morning (5-6 am) or evenings (9-10).

I've gotten to the point where I'm actually a little bit afraid of him during these times of day.

He bit my hand/wrist about a month ago, and it caused so much pain that I had to go to an urgent care center.

I mentioned this to my vet once, and she said some nonsense about how I need to spend more time playing with him, etc. But that's not the problem. The behavior can definitely be traced to times he's pissed at me about something.

Any ideas?

I know this sounds crazy, but try pharamones. You can purchase them in pet supply catalogs. I thought it was a load of crap, but my mom used it on her crazy cat and it really helped.
