It's 10:15 a.m. on a Monday and people are already beating a path to Sleepy Hollow Medical Group, an urgent care facility in downtown Laguna Beach.
One man has a painful foot problem and is placed in a room for treatment. An older gentleman walks in, hails Dr. William Anderson, the facility's founder, and, after some pleasantries, requests a referral to a dermatologist. Anderson writes down the name and phone number of a local dermatologist, from memory, and sends him on his way.
A third man comes in the door, holding up a bandaged finger. He thinks he might need a tetanus shot but is not sure. He has been bitten by a dog. The man is quickly shown to a room, seen by the doctor and in short order a nurse is dispatched to administer the shot.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary at the location, Sleepy Hollow has an unassuming façade at 364 Ocean Ave., but inside the facility is bustling. It is open seven days a week, and appointments are not necessary.
