Please recommend the best plan of action for a man in Hollywood, CA who has some fairly wicked ingrown toenails.

If it has to be 'see a podiatrist' that can be arranged. In several weeks. (Kaiser)
I'd much rather go to a salon or whatever this week, and not have the person assigned to help me cringe when they see the welts and bruising these curling nails are causing on my big toes. Not have them ignore or give up on fixing them, and preferably not charge me an arm and a leg for their deft attentions.
I've spent a few hours over the course of the past few weeks digging at them, but my pain threshold and flexibility have their limits. Mostly it's the flexibility issue; I can't really get in there the way I'd need to to fix these nails. I'm not afraid to bleed a little in the hope that I'll be able to walk pain free from now on. Also, I'm not sure how to 'train' my nails to grow properly instead of trying to wrap themselves around my toe under the skin.
I'd really like to meet a person who fixes ingrown toenails for a living, and who would relish a challenge. Do you know that person? What's their name? Are they in Hollywood? I'll go anywhere in the metropolitan area for the right person, but closer is better. If I need to become a regular of theirs, it's an option.
Please give me your recommendations.
