University Cancer & Blood Center, a leading cancer treatment center based in Athens, has opened an office in Covington, bringing the most advanced cancer care available – and a clinical research program that is the second largest in Georgia – to citizens throughout Rockdale and Newton Counties.

UCBC’s clinical research program is one of seven practices in the country to receive the 2013 Clinical Trials Participation Award. UCBC is committed to National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center standards of excellence for patient care.

UCBC’s patients have the benefit of treatments close to home and access to the best therapies medical science can provide.

Dr. Frederick “Eric” Flynt, MD, FACP, serves patients at the new Covington location. Flynt is board certified in internal medicine, hematology, and medical oncology. A graduate of Mercer University School of Medicine, Flynt is a military physician who served on active duty in the United States Air Force as an oncologist/hematologist and flight surgeon, including a tour in Afghanistan as part of the International Security Assistance Force for Operation Enduring Freedom.

Flynt completed his residency in internal medicine at Wilford Hall Medical Center, Lackland AFB, Texas, where he eventually was chosen to serve as chief of medical residents. He went on to complete a fellowship in hematology and medical oncology at San Antonio Military Medical Center.

University Cancer & Blood Center’s medical professionals have provided patients with advanced cancer care in an atmosphere of caring and compassion since 1982.

University Cancer & Blood Center’s Covington office is located at 10155 Eagle Drive, Suite 10155, in Covington. The office phone number is 706-353-2990, or 1-800-892-2806.
