Question and answer
Rewrite the sentence to eliminate ambiguous, remote, or broad reference. We drove to the doctor's office only to find out that they were closed for the day.
That sentence really is fine the way it is. It's not ambiguous. The only change I'd make is to eliminate the word "that," because it's unnecessary in this case.
